    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This company has been my favorite job yet. The leadership is empowering and provides resources and education. The people I work with are genuine and enjoy the work that they are doing. They truly care about their customers.

    Cons

    The salary is based upon Milwaukee pay which can be challenging if you live in a market where the cost of living is higher. Management has heard this expressed and is addressing it from what I know. However, this doesn't apply to people who are financial reps so much.

    Advice to Management

    Good management!

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great company to learn the sales cycle and the insurance business. Many opportunities to network with other professionals within the organization.

    Cons

    Best benefits and professional opportunities received if working out of their home office in Milwaukee. Experience at satellite locations will depend upon the operating managers and directors. Support can be lacking for women and minorities.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great training and supportive team. Solid Pay. Helps you develop as an employee. Encourages growth.

    Cons

    Unless you're near the home office, certain positions can feel like a dead end. Cross team communication could be better at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on growing and offer a bit more opportunity to those outside of the Home Office areas. Be a bit more upfront about room for career advancement if it isn't there.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    NONE - no one wants to work here anymore

    Cons

    NM has just laid off a new round of employees. Oh yes, they are being transparent and gee you get to reapply for other new jobs. The descriptions for these jobs are lacking, you have no idea if your skills are really a match. Don't worry if you don't get the job you applied because there are other managers in the room who have open slots. Same old 'who you know' environment. They can slot you somewhere else,... you may not succeed or even like the job and then they can fire you. Oh, and the job you get could be a demotion. No package unless you apply and are not chosen.

    Advice to Management

    Interesting way to do things. Some say more humane than the last round. Sounds like trying to get rid of people on the cheap. And, make them wait until January when rumor is package will be less than in the past.
