I worked at New York Life full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very good training program for new hires.

Cons

Insurance is a very tough business with many competitors thereby making it a difficult challenge sometimes to persuade others that they are under insured.

Advice to Management

Continue to motivate and encourage new hires. As a new hire it was easy to get distracted and not focus on the larger picture.

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

    Pros

    Great training and products. If you want to go into financial services, a large mutual company like New York Life is a great place to start.

    Cons

    There are so many agents that it can sometimes be difficult to book appointments with clients at times which are also convenient for management to come and help.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality agents more so than quantity.

    I worked at New York Life full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training for this position and agents. I think the newer management at the top is headed in the right direction. They let you know that you are valuable if you are doing a good job. The meetings at a regional level have a very positive vibe to them.

    Cons

    Local level mgmt can be a challenge. There needs to be a more consistent message instead of a new plan every 4 weeks. More big picture planning would help. Some offices are highly successful at this while some seem to repeat the same missteps.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the partners and development managers working together and success will happen. Too often they are at odds. A good salesperson is not automatically a good manager.
