Pros

I am building my own business with complete control of my career while helping people provide financial security for their familes. New York Life has the best products in the industry, has the highest financial ratings, and offers many paths for agents including moving towards advanced financial services or moving into management. Training program is unmatched in this or any other industry. I have had a lot of success, and 3 years into it have never made a cold call.

Cons

You get paid very well, but only for the work you do. As with any business, you must sell yourself and your products to be successful. This can be very challenging for those used to getting a steady paycheck, or for those not willing to get out and interact with people.

Advice to Management

Find agents who are coachable, who have the heart to serve and educate their clients, and who will earn their success not those who feel entitled to it.

    Pros

    There are flexible hours and one is able to work from home at times.

    Cons

    No one respects your time. You are expected to work until 1am and be at work for 9am next day.

    Advice to Management

    The Managers take credit for your work and do not give opportunities for advancement. They are only looking out for themselves.
