More upfront about compensation and commission

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is pretty nice and pleasant for the most part. Management really wants to invest in you to help you grow in your career. NM has a great reputation in the insurance world so it's easy to talk about how great the company is and why you should work here.

    Cons

    If you are Financial representative, this is an amazing place for you to learn and grow. However, if you are in a staff/ support staff role there is not much room for growth and upward mobility. If you do get a "promotion" They seem to be a big fan of lateral promotions with more responsibilities and menial tasks with the same pay. No one on staff gets paid what they deserve, so unless you just Really love working your butt off for no money I wouldn't chose to work on staff here.

    Advice to Management

    There are rewards for financial reps, why not reward your staff as well? There should be more opportunities for career growth.
