The company as a whole is fantastic.

Associate Financial Representative (Current Employee)
Wilmington, NC (US)

I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than a year

ProsHuge potential to build your own business and make a lot of money
Helping others in and outside your community build financial security
Leadership roles
Independence
Great opportunity
Great training

ConsHard to get started. Very difficult to get through 6 months, much less 4 years. After 5 years you are golden.
Some reps are better than others. Some Advisors business is hurting and pay their employees poorly (assistant roles), also they create a very negative atmosphere.
Can be high stress.
It is a sales position, do not let the financial part fool you. You are a sales rep.
