I have been working at New York Life Investments full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Challenging environment, smart co workers, decent compensation and benefits. Senior management is communicative and keeps us informed, even when they have bad news to share.Cons
Major "transformation" initiative is underway in Technology. In the end we are told there will be a major downsizing in the NY-NJ workforce. Most jobs will be going to India, Dallas, Atlanta. No chance of relo or training. This process is just starting, not clear the impact on specific individuals.
Knowledge transfer process is also underway. Teams of young Indians come around, interview and record you on what you do, how you do it, etc. Assisting these teams is #1 priority we are told.
My manager is a micromanager who has lost or fired all his employees over the years. I am the last. Daily 15-20 minute lecture sessions are painful but tolerated. Earned time off is difficult to take - every year most of my vacation time is piled up to be taken in Nov and Dec. when I get lectured on why I should have taken it during the year even though it often was refused to be approved.
Manager expects you to be working 10-12 hours / day, available on weekends. Does not "get" the importance of American holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, other family time. Vacations in summer with family is more important than vacation in October, November, etc. alone.
Company used to be a great place to work. Now it feels abusive, unpleasant to come to every day.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Don't promote every good technical person to management. Being qualified technically does not make you a good people person. Force managers to stick to corporate policies and not make their own private HR rules that we need to abide by.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
