    Pros

    recognized brand, established company, long history.

    Cons

    no salary, lots of sells training, and product training is mostly insurance products, no leads, unless you want to buy them out of your own pocket. Good for someone who is aggressive sales person and has lots of contacts and friends, specially affluent ones, otherwise it will be difficult to survive the first year let alone the first 3. All insurance companies have the same tried and true system of hiring lots of new people every month or two, have them sell to all their friends and family, and then most will quit because it isn't easy to sell to strangers.

    Advice to Management

    A decent base salary and benefits would be nice, instead of exploiting people to sell to their friends, and than its good bye. The systems works for them, why change it?

    Pros

    New York Life is an incredibly strong company. It has one of the best reputations in the industry. As an agent you have limited products to sell but once you become registered and pass the series 6 exam. You are able to sell many more and interesting financial products. The income potential is amazing and could become quite a lucrative business. If you already have a strong network, you're already ahead of the game.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of working for NYL is obviously that its a life insurance company. The thing that make it such a strong company is also what made me not like the business as much. You have to be ready to take a lot of rejection from family, friends and random people you meet out working the field. Also, once you say you work for New York Life, people will run out of the door because no one likes to talk about life insurance.
