Agent, Portland Oregon office

Insurance Agent (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

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

Proscan somewhat set your own schedule, free office cubicle for first 3 years with free phone service

Consunless you are wealthy and/or have wealthy friends it is very hard to meet quota as far as insurance sales go. There is not help in finding new leads, except that you can buy potential leads that of course do not necessarily lead to a sale.

Advice to Senior Managementcare more about individual agents', provide ACTUAL training, give help on seminars

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A company with very nice vision but lack of good leaders to achieve the vision

Employees are selfish. They think of themselves not others or the company.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

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

ProsThe company provides best training in the Insurance industry. A few insurance policies are good but most of the policies has lost money in the market.

ConsThe employees are nice to you till you are nice to them. They are selfish lot, ruthless people. All of them tries to save their own job at somebody else;s cost. The call center people tells something else and the staff something else. After sale, service is very poor. No proper co-ordination is there. Every day new recruitments are taking place and train ed but the moment the new employees better opportunity they leave the company. Instead company should recruit the old A/A who have left the co or planning to leave the co.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive some breathing space to your employees. Insurance industry is going down every day. The co. had a good name in the market but due to their behaviour and inefficiency of senior staff all the prestige is going down the drain.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
