    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at New York Life full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The highest rated insurance company in America that is solely owned by policy holders. What that means to an employee is stability and a company that truly exists to do nothing but serve its clients. NYL has a great heart and it's reflected in everything the Company does. The mission is fulfilling and the compensation (pay plus benefits) are great.

    Cons

    None really. You just have to be willing to work hard, especially at the beginning of the agent career. Everyone who is successful here has put in the time to be so. That being said, your schedule is flexible so that you don't have to miss family events for work.
