    Salary was completely based on commission and it was a big adjustment to this coming from salaried positions

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

    Pros

    The status of the company as an organization when it was known. Word in the South Florida market is not as well disseminated as with in other Eastern Seaboard States as New York, Delaware New Jersey and Connecticut. As a person coming from a salaried position it was difficult to adjust in this competitive environment.

    Cons

    The competitive challenge in sales. I managed my own times except for required sales meetings. I am in business for myself and so it is up to me to make my sales target.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is a great company but the working environment and culture is a product of the company's managers especially the partners who manage the individual sales units. There are good managers and there are bad managers especially since their orientation is directly from their sales training and they might have very little or any sales training.

    I worked at Max New York Life Insurance full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good and there are a lot of good people that work you. There is a generous vacation policy, but benefits are being eroded year after year.

    Cons

    senior management is out of touch, there have been many re-orgs and lay-offs over the past 5 years. No stability, and no job security.

    Difficult job, but one can be successful

    I have been working at Max New York Life Insurance

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, independence, every day is different. This made it so you really had full control over how much effort you put into the job.

    Cons

    I didn't make any money at this job until about a month and a half in. They want you to prove yourself before they will make you full time and give you benefits. i guess that makes sense, but make sure you have some money saved up before you dive into a career in life insurance.

    Pros

    Can't think of any real pros here except if your just starting out in your career, take full advantage of training and education subsidiaries.

    Cons

    Well guys, another major reorganization along with major structural changes will be happening at New York Life once again. There must have been 1-dozen similar changes which have occurred over the past 3-4 years and morale for those who have survived is HORRIFIC.

    I'm talking specifically for the Technology Department.

    Word of advise for all......if your under 55 years old, don't spend another minute at this company. Based on my work-life experiences, it generally takes a few years for the organizational changes to settle in. Well anyone with half a brain who works here can attest to the fact that Senior Management are trying different plans at the expense of peoples lives and ambitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management = HORRIFIC! TERRIBLE!! If I were a bit younger I'd leave yesterday. So close to retiring I have to suffer through your inept Management style.
