"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."

"While Northwestern Mutual is a reputable company, I found making 60 cold calls a day very tedious. My manager, although a very nice man, was not very supportive in helping me learn the trade. I did, however, work with a colleague, and he and I completed policies for some top companies in Naples."
