Company name[edit]

According to the company website:

Copyright 2005, The Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company/Northwestern Mutual, Milwaukee, WI. All rights reserved. 720 East Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53202-4797 - (414) 271-1444. The Northwestern Mutual Financial Network is a marketing name for the sales and distribution arm of The Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, its affiliates and subsidiaries. — Preceding unsigned comment added by BaronLarf (talkcontribs) 17:35, 28 June 2005 (UTC)

Page Title[edit]

I manage interactive marketing for Northwestern Mutual and would like the community's input on a possible change. There is a difference between Northwestern Mutual and Northwestern Mutual Financial Network. They are not the same thing. All the content on the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network page is about Northwestern Mutual, not the Financial Network. But the Northwestern Mutual page in Wikipedia redirects back to the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network page, and given the current content, it should be the other way around. I think it would make sense to move the current content on the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network page to the Northwestern Mutual page, and then change the redirect. Your input would be appreciated on whether such a change would be appropriate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Northwesternmutual (talkcontribs) 21:09, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

NPOV[edit]

I removed some links and tagged the article with a POV check template, following a double revert regarding a recent contribution by user Policyowner, who has made similar entries to other articles across wikipedia. Could another party please look in to the neutrality of this? Thanks! Sulfur 20:26, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Importance Scale[edit]

I assessed the importance of the article as being between Mid and High; I somewhat arbitrarily broke the tie in favor of High. It was recently changed to Low. I would argue that it is at least a Mid importance article. Comments?

Here are the anchor descriptions from Wikipedia:WikiProject_Wisconsin/Assessment#Importance_assessment:

When you assessed it at high, I thought of it as being somewhere in between too. I would definitely say at least mid. --Benn Newman 01:16, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
Edurant, I was the one that changed the article from high to low (the comments are left on the comments subpage) as I felt in the context of Wisconsin it was not particularly important. While it may get some visibility outside of Wisconsin, it is likely extremely low given their minimalist advertising campaigns. However, I felt, but did not write, that it was somewhere in between low and mid (and I tend to rate lower when I think it could be either). With that, raising the importance from low to mid would be fine with me. Any other thoughts? --Andymarek 03:07, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

I think Mid is much more reasonable. Miaers 02:00, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Advertising?[edit]

This article reads like an excerpt from a promotional brochure. Possibly should be reworded or removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Roman1766 (talkcontribs) 01:10, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
