I have been working at New York Life full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Really nice people in general. Great flexibility in your day. Good training. The company will get you licensed quickly. If you know a lot of people who are wiling to buy insurance or invest, this may be the perfect job for you. When you have prospects they will go out of their way to help you set a plan put together.

Cons

100% commission is tough. You really need to have a good partner to do well in this company. I needed to change partners before I ever got my mailings sent out or any leads at all. By that time it was too late. They rely heavily on who you already know!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more aware of what new agents tell you. If they say they need help in a certain area or they lack something, pay attention. Do not let partners keep telling their agents, "you know more people than you think you do." They may not know the right kind of people! Get ahead of this and genuinely help them develop a book of business, not just harass the people they do know.
