I worked at New York Life part-time (More than a year)

Pros

good highly rated mutual insurer. Great training.

Cons

They don't provide enough leads and leave you to your own devices, encouraging you to solicit friends and family, which is alienating all around

Advice to Management

Need to inspire agents better and provide more resources to get them the right leads and keep them

    I worked at New York Life as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You're in business for yourself. A lot of freedom and flexibility. Excellent training program. High growth potential. Your clients are yours, not the company's.

    Cons

    On your own, need a good book of business to start. Some up-front costs. You are always working, maybe not in the office, but on an everyday basis.

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

    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential.
    Flexible hours.
    You're working for an amazing company who loves its agents and compensates them while for helping families and individuals protect and save for the future.

    Cons

    No leads and salary, but their ability to help you find leads and the unlimited earning potential make up for that.
