Life at New York Life

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsGood benefits, accepting culture of work/life balance

Consstagnant, slow moving 165 year culture; poor business acumen of executives, promotions based on personality, devoid of merit; failure to prepare for business opportunities in future

Advice to Senior ManagementHire from outside; train less experienced employees; formulate strategy for 21st century insurance sales and purchase.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
