    Create your own schedule, paid for me to attain financial licenses

    Cons

    Corp Management Looooves to Micro Manage everyone to death! It's like being in the military.

    Advice to Management

    Let your people work, trust that they are working hard and want the best for the team. It's not just your way or the highway there are many roads to success...apparently no one in management knows this.

    I worked at Max Life Insurance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You are given enough ability to go make the company $$ but it costs a lot of money to run your office.

    Cons

    There are NO ethics. If you are a producer you get special treatment and management will look the other way if there are indescressions. So if you have no morals or ethics the Minnesota general office is the place for you. I was there 11 plus years and gave it all up not to be associated with them anymore

    Advice to Management

    It's been given and ignored at the GO level repeatedly.

    Pros

    New York Life has the bet training in the business. They are friendly and really want you to focus on client needs and security.

    Cons

    It is a lot of information to consume in a short period of time. You have a trail period or P-Tas period to show them what you can do before you are actually a full time agent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep training and looking for the best people in and out of the business.

    Pros

    The status of the company as an organization when it was known. Word in the South Florida market is not as well disseminated as with in other Eastern Seaboard States as New York, Delaware New Jersey and Connecticut. As a person coming from a salaried position it was difficult to adjust in this competitive environment.

    Cons

    The competitive challenge in sales. I managed my own times except for required sales meetings. I am in business for myself and so it is up to me to make my sales target.

    Advice to Management

    The company is a great company but the working environment and culture is a product of the company's managers especially the partners who manage the individual sales units. There are good managers and there are bad managers especially since their orientation is directly from their sales training and they might have very little or any sales training.

    Pros

    The pay is good and there are a lot of good people that work you. There is a generous vacation policy, but benefits are being eroded year after year.

    Cons

    senior management is out of touch, there have been many re-orgs and lay-offs over the past 5 years. No stability, and no job security.
