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

Pros

Tremendous amount of time and money put into personal development and training. Has one of the best internship programs developed for the financial services industry.

Cons

Hard recruiting environment-hard to attract good candidates, expect you to refer people to the career or rely on reps to refer you candidate and that doesn't happen easily.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being so discriminatory when it comes to hiring recruiters. By far, the vast majority of recruiters are young, attractive women and their is a clear bias by management to keep it this way.

    Just an awful place to work.

    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!

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

    Pros

    Strong institution with solid financial strength and a high-quality basic product of life insurance. After a great deal of careful analysis, I bought a policy myself. Their fiscal and investments performance in the meltdown of 2008 was stellar.

    Cons

    Very "Mad Men" environment -- the Associates are nothing more than secretaries, regardless of education, experience, or credentials, and the culture is stuck in the 1960s, with all that that implies. Very surprising and disappointing to someone coming from a large corporate background.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This franchisee organization is starting to learn the "patter" of diversity and inclusion, but the reality is something altogether different, especially in the network offices, and signs of change are surface-level only.
