"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."

"Northwestern Mutual Irvine is a great company to work for with an good culture. Overall, I have really enjoyed my experience with this company. They were very great about allowing me to take on positions that I was capable of in a short amount of time. Their compensation structure for staff positions although is a bit skewed compared to their financial representatives."

"I've been at Northwestern Mutual for nearly two years. It truly is a solid company that focuses on holistic financial planning. With a solid foundation in life insurance, they've now branched out to focus on helping clients plan for tomorrow while living for today."

"I worked at Northwestern Mutual during the summer of 2018. I found the workplace environment was very positive and there was an abundance of knowledgeable people throughout the office. However, I found that some of the employees had an intrusive sales approach that didn't align with my morals. Others had a better approach that enabled them to form a relationship with the customer and truly find their personal needs."

"This company did not seem to take into account the cost to its' employees and clientele in its quest to expand. They would not allow new employees to work independently and required you to work with a senior adviser who got 50% of your sales commission and full control of the account if you left the company. This organization did not seem to try and hide the fact that new hires have incredibly high turnovers, and have created a system that perpetuates this issue. My supervisor spent a good deal of time criticizing me over trying to help me overcome the tribulations of an incredibly difficult industry."

"I have worked with Northwestern Mutual for less than 1 year. The training that is provided is the best training I have seen next to the military. The work culture is fantastic and people rely on each other to improve our day. The overall mission of helping people meet their financial goals is rewarding and people who have an excellent network of people should work for them."
