I have been working at New York Life full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great Training, Amazing Leadership, Fantastic Income Potential. In Denver they have fantastic leadership and training.

Cons

Thick skin as one is selling an intangible product. Be prepared to follow a process and make sure you are ready to run your own business as it is a commission position.

Advice to Management

Really focus on individual learning styles. Tailor marketing plans to the individual.

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

    Pros

    - Company has maintained highest possible financial ratings over the past 5 years (current surplus account balance is greater than FDIC)
    - Uncapped earnings potential.
    - Strong training program.
    - Overall positive team environment.

    Cons

    - No base salary (you will invest in the company before they invest in you).
    - Uncapped work hours (you will work nights and weekends.)
    - Management title precedes Series 7 examination sponsorship (you have to be a partner before you can take the series 7)
    - Disapproving market (people will tend to avoid you. They can smell insurance breath!)

    Advice to Management

    - Reduce abnormally high turnover rate by offering base salary as offered to first year employees of Edward Jones, Charles Schwabb, and Ameriprise.
