I worked at New York Life as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The New York Life was a very good looking company to work for on paper and the other employees were very intelligent.

Cons

Management was what was the deal breaker for me. The management team was not up to par because they were not as experienced as they should have been and showed in there teachings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Educate other managers better.

    Former Employee - Financial Services Professional in Denver, CO

    I worked at New York Life full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's an incredible company through and through. Their mutual nature, products, and services are all designed with the long-view in mind. This means they'll be around to keep their promises. Not many financial services and life insurance firms can say that. Great training, great people, and great work.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone. 100% commission with no draw is an incredibly difficult way to make a living. Some people can cut it. Most can't. If you can, you will have an incredible life. And if you can't, you'll know rather quickly, and move on to the next thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. You were all great, and I wish it was the life for me. It just isn't.
