I worked at New York Life full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Excellent training for this position and agents. I think the newer management at the top is headed in the right direction. They let you know that you are valuable if you are doing a good job. The meetings at a regional level have a very positive vibe to them.

Cons

Local level mgmt can be a challenge. There needs to be a more consistent message instead of a new plan every 4 weeks. More big picture planning would help. Some offices are highly successful at this while some seem to repeat the same missteps.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the partners and development managers working together and success will happen. Too often they are at odds. A good salesperson is not automatically a good manager.
