"I have been employed here for about 3 months. It has been a great experience. Financial reps are treated like we are very valuable. Good support and the ability to move up and make good money. You get new laptop, and have access to state of the art facilities. We also got a sign on bonus for the first month. Older reps are very supportive and will help you with cases you can't handle."

"The training and support at Northwestern Mutual helps their representatives to grow their business. However, you must be financially prepared to not make as much money in your first year. It is a stressful business that you have to keep afloat and achieve in."

"I have only worked for NM for four months as a financial rep. They provide great training and assist new reps in several ways. It can be difficult to hit the ground running and takes a determined mindset to succeed. If you follow the advice and training they give you can become successful."

Northwestern Mutual Employee
in Austin, TX

"I landed an internship with Northwestern Mutual in May 2020. I felt like there was a lot of room for growth and improvement during the first three months of this position. I learned a lot of great skills revolving around financial planning and sales. However, due to Covid-19, my growth became stagnant since we are not in the office. The number of resources available is few and far between, and the more experienced advisors are busy with their own work."

Financial Representative
in Boca Raton, FL

"I've worked with Northwestern Mutual for almost two years now. My co-workers are some of the most genuine people I have ever met and I am so glad that I was able to build strong relationships with most of them. On a professional level, I love working with my clients and helping them achieve their personal and financial goals. However, for me, working under a salary based job can be very fluctuating; some months are great and some months I am under a great deal of stress. Northwestern is the best at what they do in my opinion and I wouldn't refer anyone to a different firm or agency."

Office Coordinator
in Walnut Creek, CA

"The ongoing training and support is the best I have seen. Everyone I interacted with was kind and very professional. Unfortunately, COVID-19 had slowed business down and in addition, many financial advisors and their teams chose to work remotely. With these factors my position as Office Coordinator was unfortunately no longer needed and was ultimately eliminated."
