I worked at New York Life as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

chance to learn about online marketing, life insurance, great peers and management.

For this specific role the pay was not substantial, summer college interns earned more. Usually no opportunity for growth from a consultant to full time employee.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at New York Life full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, accepting culture of work/life balance

    Cons

    stagnant, 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 ManagementAdvice

    Hire from outside; train less experienced employees; formulate strategy for 21st century insurance sales and purchase.
