Featured Review

Former Employee - Administrative Assistant

I worked at New York Life full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

New York Life offers a good work/life balance, fair compensation, and an inclusive and diverse work environment.

Cons

Although there are opportunities for growth, and to move around within departments, this is not actively encouraged when you excel at your job and are needed by team. There is a great chance you will... be doing exact same thing, and not growing as far as advancing career.

Advice to Management

Fostering growth and hiring entry-level employees as seasoned employees advance on to other positions within the company.

Current Employee - Regional Vice President

I have been working at Primerica full-time

Pros

Freedom, Unlimited income, High Pay, Fun environment

Cons

Self Motivated, if you’re not a motivated person you will keep starting over as you are re motivated by someone else.
