The job is hard and it's so much harder as a female. If you have a good support system and can be okay with not being perfect (or get over it as quickly as possible), you can do very well here.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Most of the financial advisers at NM are male and it is a culture and system that has been created to help men become successful. Feedback is mainly given around numbers and men like to parade their numbers around. As a female, you will often be asked whose assistant you are and there is an assumption that you are not an adviser. It can also be lonely when you find yourself the only female in a room, which will happen more often than not. There is also no maternity leave. That being said, for the women who are able to survive, this can be an awesome career where you get to impact many people and have the potential to make a lot of money.

Good benefits for women with families. As far as a single woman like myself, the most appeal to me is the student loan repayment and assistance.

There are not many females in the financial representative role. You have to be a strong, determined person to work in the career. You make your own hours/ schedule, it is commission level which is great because there is not ceiling how much you can make. Great company to work with.
