Topics regarding layoffs at Northwestern Mutual

Lost reputation

I used to be proud to be a small part of this company, but today I am ashamed to still be here. Have you noticed how people outside have a worsening opinion of NM? It's sad.

Where did it go wrong?

I resigned because this company is not even close to the one I started working for. The atmosphere is horrible, there is a huge lack of respect, the least valued are good and loyal employees, long-term plans for this company are behind smoke and... —  read more
