Why Working for Northwestern Mutual Might be Right for You?

Northwestern Mutual employees work in a business casual, dynamic atmosphere that encourages excellence, creativity and career advancement. More than just opportunities, we offer you challenges.

Northwestern Mutual's employees have a wide variety of educational backgrounds—from accounting to liberal arts to biology. A degree in one area does not necessarily lock you into that profession; we encourage our employees to expand their knowledge and their careers by moving across different areas of the Company. This benefits both employees as well as the Company. It gives our employees the freedom to explore different areas of interest to them, and gives the Company more experienced, well-rounded employees.

If you are wondering whether or not your degree is what we are looking for or qualifies you for a career in financial services, chances are—it is.

Northwestern Mutual recognizes that great ideas come from everyone. We encourage all employees to think creatively and share their ideas.

Northwestern Mutual's downtown Milwaukee and Franklin campuses include several cafeterias offering our employees both breakfast and lunch. Our Cyber Cafe offers coffee and soft drinks.

Taking Care of Business . . . and Family

Northwestern Mutual strives to help employees find balance between work and family. Part-time and alternative work schedules have been incorporated at the Company, and Flexible Spending Accounts allow employees the option of setting aside pre-tax dollars for expenses such as health care and dependent care. These are just some examples of how Northwestern Mutual encourages employees to find a healthy balance between work and personal life.

Work Hard—and Play Hard

At Northwestern Mutual, we work very hard. We also make sure that we play hard. With 30 activity clubs and social organizations, we offer plenty of opportunity for fun. No matter what your interests are, it's likely that we have something for you.

Community Events

Every day Northwestern Mutual’s employees inspire others in their work and personal lives – from helping people achieve their financial security goals, to dedicating their energy and enthusiasm to non-profit organizations.

Throughout the year, the Company sponsors a variety of social and community events

  • United Way Campaign

    Thanks to our employees' and retirees' generosity, and the Northwestern Mutual Foundation grant, Northwestern Mutual continues to be the leading corporate donor to the United Way of Greater Milwaukee. For the past three years, we've donated more than $3 million annually to the community campaign.

    We offer employees several ways to be involved for a longer-term one-on-one commitment for youth through programs like Time to Read, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Junior Achievement, Literacy Services, and YMCA Sponsor-a-Scholar.
