Agent at New York Life Insurance
Posted last month in White Plains, NY

"The pay I receive is completely based on number of leads acquired on my own, but that is not the whole story. Part of the reason I am leaving is the same reason I believe in the company: products and services there are for long-term and worth-while needs. The problem, the challenge/opportunity, is that these services (which I can show on a spreadsheet) aren't tangible today. This is not software for a company's needs, nor it is advertising, solar paneling, or merchant services."
