I worked at New York Life part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Make connections with top-level management
Meet with vendors
Breakfast in the cafeteria is great
Co-workers make the day go by

Cons

One manager told me that as innovative as NYL would like to be, you can't expect projects or ideas to move forward for at least 6 month to 2 years because they need to maintain their reputation, evaluate things through chains dozens of groups and executives and make sure client security and confidentiality is in place. These are all good reasons for making sure they don't make sudden and possibly disastrous mistakes but keep your expectations low if you want to create any kind of change in the workplace.

Positive Outlook

    Pros

    good highly rated mutual insurer. Great training.

    Cons

    They don't provide enough leads and leave you to your own devices, encouraging you to solicit friends and family, which is alienating all around

    I worked at New York Life as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    You're in business for yourself. A lot of freedom and flexibility. Excellent training program. High growth potential. Your clients are yours, not the company's.

    Cons

    On your own, need a good book of business to start. Some up-front costs. You are always working, maybe not in the office, but on an everyday basis.
