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

Pros

People are for the most part respecting of each other, I would say this is a "nice" company (no yelling or screaming or backstabbing, etc.)

Cons

There is definitely a good old boy network at play, definitely within Agency, and not a ton of women at the top.

Advice to Management

Change up management in Agency so they come into the 21st century

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

    Pros

    Not stuck to a 9 to 5, you can work your 40-50 hours however you like.
    I am finally get paid what I am worth due to my efforts.
    Ongoing training and support the 5 years I have been here.
    I have made more money every single year and I am getting paid residual income on all my business over the last 5 years.
    My manager has played an active role in my development every single year and I am now helping him develop newer advisors and getting compensated for that as well.

    Cons

    I hit a good size case and get a little lazy after that, which is my fault not the companies!
    My office is an hour from my house so the 4 times a month I do drive to the office its a bit out of the way.

    Advice to Management

    Stay aligned with developing long term career advisors like you have been doing.
