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.

    Current Employee - College Financial Representative in Indianapolis, IN (US)

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Unrivaled independence. Northwestern Mutual lets you make your own schedule and commission lets you decide how much you want to make. You have an opportunity to make a real impact on people's lives. Emphasis on personal growth and development on and off the clock sets Northwestern Mutual apart.

    Cons

    As with many financial institutions, Northwestern Mutual is a very formal company. Be prepared for constant business formal dress, professional situations, and being in a constant state of marketing yourself. If you love to chase sales goals, this could be the job for you. It is a very tough career for the first few years and requires you to ask tough questions and be courageous.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Unlimited income potential
    Great training, can break down the steps to succeed
    Proprietary products
    Family like work culture
    People always willing to help
    Huge amount of marketing resources
    Can use products outside of the Nmfn family

    Cons

    Financial rep position not suited for everyone, this is easily the biggest con. It takes the right person who can live with the good and bad days.
    Can be a lot of work to start
    Not something that is easy to relocate into without a network
    Not all network offices are as supportive
