Solid Company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern

ProsNorthwestern Mutual has great products and services which makes them easier to sell. You are mostly your own boss if you are a financial rep.

ConsSince you are your own boss you have to be motivated to work. If you are not self motivated this job is not for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake responsibility for your own actions by not throwing the blame on the most recent person that left.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than 3 years


Pros: - Employees still spend their entire career here - Employees do care about the customer - The company does a good job taking care… Cons: - If you are "Type A" or coming from a fast-paced work environment, then be prepared to slow down...even to the level of inefficiency. - There… Advice to Senior Management: Upper management needs to be shrunk.
