Great company! High turnover indicative of the industry.

Registered Representative (Former Employee)
Andover, MA

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

ProsExcellent sales training and manager support if you have a good Manager Partner. Great product selection to fit every need.

ConsNot everyone has the long term ability to maintain all the office fees and business expenses associated with the business.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation is fairly standard for the industry, 100% commission plus matching training allowance for the first 3 years based on sales. However, not all office and administrative fees were stated upfront, and some unexpected fees were added. Management needs to do a better job of disclosing these to sales reps from the very beginning so that one can plan expenses more accurately for the long term.
Career opportunities are limited from the sales rep track to managing partner as they do not seem to hire from within from sales to other positions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Tough environment with very little support

Agent (Former Employee)
Bala Cynwyd, PA

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


Pros: Easy to get a job here Cons: Your success really depends on the manger you get placed with. I got stuck with a frat boy who was still reliving his college days,… Advice to Senior Management: make sure your "partners" are mature enough to handle their jobs/training responsibilities offer some kind of base… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
