Company Culture

This office is all about micro management to the max. They tell you over and over how much they care about you. They claim they provide the most support of any competitor, but constantly leave you in the dark. As if selling life insurance isn't hard enough. No one wants to speak about their own mortality and how it affects the closest to them. But when an agent loses someone from their family you're told to suck it up and use the emotion to sell more.

Support from management

Support? Expect a minimum 3 day delay for any support.

Teamwork

Its cut throat and every person for themselves. Experienced agents take advantage of the new and inexperienced agents to boost their books of business.

Freedom to work independently

Yes go work on your own and don't ask for help.

Internal Communication

No one is on the same page. They say over and over the same thing but the right hand isn't in sync with the left.

Work-Life Balance

Pressure to always be working. To run your life to the minuet by your calendar.

Inclusive / Diverse

Management does not want to hear your opinions nor struggles. They will twist the situation and question back to a problem about you and your methods.

What I like about the company

My experience taught me the meaning of hard work. I went into the position not thinking it would be as challenging as it was, but I was wrong. Though I was not with the company for very long, it was an overall positive experience nonetheless. It wasn't the right fit for me at the time, but I have no regrets and am truly grateful for the opportunity/experience, and everything that I learned.

What I dislike about the company

I have nothing negative to say about the company. I still think it is one of the greatest American companies out there.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Many of us are working parents, so a daycare in campus will be perfect, but they are afraid of liability. Actually employees will work more and less stress if we will have this benefit.

What I like about the company

I work in this company since 2008 and I have been promoted 3 times. Yearly performance reviews are very important. NYL Direct helped me to get my AS in Computer Information Technology. I have a manager that let me grow with the company and new ideas are always well received. We have diversity and inclusion at the workplace. Benefits are great like 401K and life insurance.

What I dislike about the company

Even though my manager is open to new ideas, senior leaders sometimes don't like change and it is difficult to go through many layers of CVPs to reach the main office in New York City.
