    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    As a company the products they offer are amazing. The Home Office support is second to none. Northwestern Mutual is fantastic. If you want to be able to offer the absolute best financial planning products out there, then NM is the place to work. If you can't make it here, you will be hard pressed to work anywhere else, because you will always know there is something better.

    Cons

    100% Commission
    Great is never enough
    You get stuck with who recruits you into the "Business"
    Do this if the only thing you care about is money
    Work-Life Balance does not exist for first 3 yrs.

    Advice to Management

    If your going to require your Reps to get their Series 6/63 in the first year, then have a support system in place to help younger reps place business.

    Very few veteran reps what to Joint Work for $50/mo Roth IRA. So now you have a young rep who is not following the compliance rules as well as they should.
