"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."

"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."

"Northwestern Mutual has taught me how to successfully run my own business. Skills I acquired were both soft and hard communication skills working with companies, families and individuals. My work has given me an analytical eye when it comes to analysis of present and future finances and can be applied greatly in contracting."

"I worked at Northwestern Mutual as a Campus Recruiter for nearly a year. Being in the financial services, this company really empowers diverse individuals such as women and BIPOC. The CEO and all leadership truly cares about their employees and will always be there to support them."

"I had a great time and met many new people"

What do you like about working at Northwestern Mutual?

"I was an independent contractor so I was able to work at my own pace and use my own judgement to perform my tasks. I also got to work with new people every day and each clients situation was different."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Its a great company, requires self motivation, and if you don't enjoy talking and meeting with new people its not the career path for you. I think there is a lot of potential for success with the company but its just not what I am looking for in my career path."

What don't you like about working at Northwestern Mutual?

"I was unhappy with the inconsistencies in being paid. I was paid on 100% commission based on new clients and the amount of business they brought to the company. While this way of being paid was fair in my eyes it made my personal financial plans hard to anticipate because of the ups and downs in the industry."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Management at Northwestern Mutual was great. They provided an industry leading sales school as well as upper management support. The team of individuals I worked closest with were very supportive and were in the industry to help people not just make money which was nice!"

What do you like about working at Northwestern Mutual?

"Northwestern Mutual pays their employees based on performance. I am extremely driven and motivated so getting paid based on performance was extremely satisfying."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Give the internship 100%. It will push the boundaries of your comfort zone and give you experience unmatched by any other internship. There is a reason that Northwestern Mutual is considered a Top Ten Internship. The internship develops leaders and encourages self-motivation, determination, and entrepreneurship."

What don't you like about working at Northwestern Mutual?

"Northwestern Mutual is a great company however, my time as an intern made me realize that working in the insurance industry was not for me. Despite my lack of desire, I gave the internship 100% and at one point ranked as high as 37 out of over 3000 interns nationwide."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Create more competition within the internship. My drive came from challenging other interns to outperform me. Competition is what fueled my success and I suspect that it would do the same for other interns."
