    I have been working at New York Life full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ability to create my own Brand. Independence, control, and challenges me to grow personally and professionally. Great benefits. I love the fact that if I want to make a great income 100k or more I can can make it happen. Great people and they do amazing work for people. Advance commissions puts money in my pocket and they have a Pension Plan. Great Leadership

    Cons

    Not for someone who is weak. If you don’t have drive, self discipline and a little bit of confidence then work for an hourly wage. Parking is expensive so you have to walk a couple blocks to save some money.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it simple.
