    I have been working at New York Life as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    NYL have gym, back up childcare and medical department -- great perks. CEO and Human resources considering to outsource the medical department next year.

    Cons

    It use to be a great place to work, but since the new CEO came to power, the company is going downhill: having layoffs and several re-organizations. It makes very unstable environment to work in. Management have no care for loyal employees who spend their tenure with good performance, they still get layoff. The company create new positions and hire the young people to save on pension benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's extremely bureaucratic company, even senior management have no decision making ability.

    I have been working at New York Life full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great products, helping others, great training

    Cons

    Sell sell, sell, micromanagement, transparency, expected to bleed blue, promote based on numbers not on competency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turnover is extraordinary - could it be because you don't care about the individual employee, just the number of applications???
