Challenging with High Turnover

Insurance Agent (Current Employee)
Greenville, SC

I have been working at New York Life full-time for more than a year

ProsNew York Life is bar none one of the best and strongest insurance companies out there. I never think twice about putting someone with NYL. They have a great suite of products and excellent training if you take advantage of it. NYL is a mutual company and I put my own insurance business with them. They have good health benefits.

ConsThey charge you for everything from coffee in the office to rent for cubicles and phone and even copies. You are never vested in renewals with business you write with them so therefore if you work there 10 years and have 1000 clients and you leave you won't get any renewals from that business.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't nickle and dime agents for everything!

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