Great work place for competitive and sales oriented people
Agent (Former Employee) – Glendale, CA – May 18, 2018
Agents are able to set their own schedule Are responsible for networking and prospecting, however, New York Life, offers some networking events but these are typically congested with other agents making those events not ideal for prospecting. Compensation is 100% commission. If you do not have a wide network of people to work with (that you already now) you will likely struggle starting off. You will also be expected to invest your own money into "growing your business". Until you can generate some business flow and keep it rolling you may be suffering for a great deal of time when it comes to compensation and income.
If you can make it past that hurdle you will likely be great. Just be mindful that that hurdle can be a few years.
Intern (Former Employee) – Berwyn, PA – May 15, 2018
Fun and open work environment with great people. Typically, I worked in recruiting to there was not too much change in my day to day activities. However, it was not overly demanding and was good experience.
Finance Intern (Former Employee) – Wall Street, NY – May 15, 2018
New York Life was a great learn experience for me. It was the first time I was working with financial products and clients in a hands on situation. I was able to see how financial advisors organize, plan and carry out their day to day operations.
Great learning experience, employees were very helpful
Agent (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – May 15, 2018
Very competitive. Hard to solidify your base when you are competing against fellow agents. Were not up front about how contracts could be taken. Great benefits and product. Not a better product out there.

They offer several educational opportunities for you to improve your skillset. I would recommend you take full advantage of those opportunities. Learning a new skill makes you more marketable inside and outside the company.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – May 13, 2018
I had a horrible experience with this company. They must pay a lot of money for damage control because this organization looks good on paper but they have a lack of empathy. It's very stressful and they don't have a wellness program. I would think they have one, being that the customers are verbal abusive as well as the agents. There's also closet racists.
Team Leader Operations (Former Employee) – Utica, NY – May 12, 2018
I worked for them and they did a great job and have fantastic leaders. there isnt anything to say because I worked for them through an outsource. The folks I worked for were EGS and fromwhat I know they NY life folks are top shelf
Insurance Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Glendale, CA – May 10, 2018
Must be driven by income. It is a very stressful environment if you do not have experience and or do not have enough people to contact. It is a referral based job and it would be difficult without referrals.
Personal Life & Health Insurance Agent (Former Employee) – Edison, NJ – May 9, 2018
Manager was awesome. Really great to work for, cared, and was great with training. The worst part about NY Life is its commission based. That can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on the type of worker you are.
