Think long and hard before you decide...

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

ProsNice benefits, includes cafeteria, gym, renovated space. Work/Life balance is good for certain people. Good training programs offered.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet people do their jobs and foster a positive work environment. Embrace change and new technology. Get rid of dead wood!
