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.

    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.
