I worked at New York Life full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good benefits, accepting culture of work/life balance

Cons

stagnant, slow moving 165 year culture; poor business acumen of executives, promotions based on personality, devoid of merit; failure to prepare for business opportunities in future

Advice to Management

Hire from outside; train less experienced employees; formulate strategy for 21st century insurance sales and purchase.

    I have been working at New York Life full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They do a great job training employees, and have some of the best training staff.

    Cons

    Some dishonest people work for this comapny and push products that clients do not need, however they are the minority less than 5%. Managers put pressure on you to spend your money in order to make money. Pay is 100% commisson it is a high pressure sales environment with a, "what have you done lately" attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Starting agents need mentors and a base salary.
