Great place to work!

Director (Current Employee)

I have been working at New York Life Investments full-time

ProsThe company offers the opportunity for advancement and provides a good work/life balance. Additionally, the firm continues to grow, creating a nice stable environment for one's career. The firm does offer an excellent mentoring program that has been beneficial in helping individuals learn more about various areas of the firm, which can lead to career advancement.

ConsAdvancement, even though attainable, can be slow at times. Medical benefits, even though competitive within the industry, can be a little bit better and less expensive.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to maintain an open door policy that enables employees to share ideas and foster a collaborative work environment. Lead by example so that others may look to you as an effective role model to aspire to.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
