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

    Congenial and professional atmosphere with a strong focus on driving sales in an ethical way. Doing well by doing good is a core mantra.

    Cons

    Can be frustrating for innovation minded people. Once a certain level in the organization is attained promotion becomes tough. Total compensation is average.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace innovation, and identify and promote those individual that have the vision and leadership to drive the company in new directions.

  2. Frustrating due to lack of leads.
