"In the time I have been with New York Life I have always felt I am a valued member of the team, my partner treated me like a brother and his leadership would make me follow him into the trenches, the teaching is excellent, and the overall work of the company is both valuable and necessary in anyone's life."

"Highly political with incompetent managers and senior leadership. If you have even half a brain, you don't belong there. Culture is like one big support group instead of a forward moving organization. Lots of allowances for employees and all of their excuses but absolutely zero accountability at every level."

Help Desk Analyst
in Utica, NY

"I have worked for New York Life through APAC Customer Service for a few years now. My learning experience has been awesome. I learned easily to do my job with a very high level of skill, thanks to the teamwork among my coworkers. I have had a hard time moving up in the company though. The team leaders tend to play favorites regardless of a skill level or who have gone above and beyond. It's a great entry point but not good for advancement within the company."

"I have worked for NYL for 10+ years and they are a good company that preaches how they are client first and agent focused but that is not true unless you are in the top 5% of producers. I have called the ethics of my particular GO into questions a number of times."

"My opinion on the company is excellent. The company is more focused on maintaining its brand. Employs over 5,000 people, and gives good benefits. Company can do better by diversifying its marketing strategy."

"Be on time, always! NYL has zero tolerance for anything!! This company is probably decent, but it really sucks to work for them! The office at Metro Park in Dublin, OH (Columbus suburb) is a JOKE. The new head office manager is from the NYC office and he is evil! He hates new employees....and has zero tolerance for being late!! I was 10 minutes late to meet him, and he just left... end of story for me. Stay away from NY Life! Ludicrous company is an understatement of the day!!"

"I worked very hard for 13+ years. Besides my job responsibilities, always I was asked to back up different departments, mentor students, travel to other campuses for work no one else wanted. I always complied with such requests no matter how long my day became. Technology helped in their decision to push me out the door."
