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

Pros

Excellent training & examples of how to be successful.

Cons

No base salary other than signing bonus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Big Brother program is a great idea but there needs to be a selection process between the new rep & the Big Brothers to connect with similar personalities.

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

    Pros

    Beautiful office, friendly atmosphere, and great training program.

    Cons

    It is sink or swim. You are given the training and you have a development specialist, but if you are not doing well, you are not making any money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more stipends for people just starting out or possibly a draw.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual

    Pros

    No pros, except that the company as a whole is good. Northwestern is an amazing company, but not the Seery group. They are the agency in WHite Plains.

    Cons

    Awful management. Awful structure. Just terrible teamwork. They do not want you to succeed and the level of turnover is awful. people are in and out all the time. The firm is not doing well, and the amount of people staying there is so slim. People al compain about how miserable they are.
    RUN FROM THIS PLACE!
