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

Pros

Good money, which of course you have to negotiate for.

Cons

Mediocre benefits. Very little merit-based promotions. All upward opportunities are based on who you know and who likes you. If you don't have a Godfather, forget it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open your eyes! Get rid of the deadweight.

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

    Pros

    Great pay - NY Salary - FL lifestyle. Great co-workers. Easy access to management. VP would often come in my cube to say hi and see how I was doing. Management cares about employees. Career path is well planned. You know exactly what to have to achieve to move to the next level.

    Cons

    Excessive workload. Overtime pay was nice, but I got burned out working so many extra hours every week.
