    I have been working at New York Life full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Basic life insurance policy comes as part of employment. Outside that, there are no pros. None. Not a one.

    Cons

    New management team has systematically destroyed what had been a great company to work for. We're three years into a seemingly never ending re-org, with one failed and abandoned management structure after another. Three years with the ever impending specter of being laid off hanging over our head. And three years of having every single employee consideration taken away from us.

    Retirement plan? Gutted.
    Telecommuting? Gone.
    Flexible hours? Gone.
    Benefit package? Gutted.
    Any hope of promotions? Gone.

    There is no work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management is obviously a lost cause. The previous CEO spent his career building strong trust and mutual respect between employees and management, ensuring a high moral and devotion to the company.

    In the past 3 years, the new CEO has dismantled what had taken decades to build. Employee moral is universally low to non-existent. There is no employee devotion to the company unless you choose to consider compelled overtime to be devotion. Many talented employees have already left, and many more are actively searching for better opportunities.

    The speed at which this company has turned from one of employee friendliness to one of a thinly veiled animosity and disrespect towards employees has been astounding. What had been a company I was proud to work for has now become one I can't wait to leave.
