    One of the best companies to work for. Northwestern assures that their employees are extremely qualified to aid their clients in the best possible manner. The motto that you "work for yourself but not by yourself" certainly shines through in Northwestern's corporate philosophy.


    The industry lends itself to a competitive nature. People who are not motivated by competition or are not self-motivated will have a difficult time being successful at Northwestern and the Financial Services industry as a whole
