It’s about what matters to you.
The typical American worker spends 2,080+ hours a year on the job. We know you want these hours to be filled with stimulating work and growth opportunities. If you’re looking for a place where you can challenge yourself, grow, and lead, a place that also has a culture that supports and celebrates people, we may be a good fit. Whether your field is finance, technology, service, marketing, or sales, you’ll join industry-leading professionals to help provide financial security to millions of policyholders nationally and an organization with investment business operations globally. It’s rewarding work that makes a difference in other people’s lives.
New York Life has corporate headquarters in New York City and maintains operations in all 50 states. We have 9,000 employees and 12,000 sales agents operating in 120 sales offices across the United States.
Here’s what it’s about.
It’s about culture.
How a company feels is an important factor to consider as you search for career opportunities. You’ll be spending a lot of time at your new company so you want it to be a good fit. New York Life feels different from other companies. We’re passionate about serving our customers. We collaborate. We give back. We deliver our best. And we never seek financial gains at the expense of our values. If those things are important to you, consider New York Life, which has been doing business for over 170 years.
It’s about professional growth.
When each person excels and succeeds, the team gets stronger. That’s the philosophy behind New York Life’s approach to learning and development. We believe that everyone can learn and experience more, whether they’re industry professionals or new to our business. Bring your ambition and initiative. We’ll help you get what you need to grow.
We think that everyone has the potential to lead, whether that means leading others, leading yourself, or influencing those around you. Employees are expected to demonstrate leadership in their roles, whether or not they manage people. The company offers classroom and online opportunities to practice and hone this key skill.
It’s about inclusive values.
A diverse organization is rich with different perspectives, different ways of approaching work and, above all, opportunities. It’s open. It’s flexible. It’s respectful. Beyond valuing people with different backgrounds and respecting differences, such as ethnicity, gender, religion, disability, or sexual orientation, an inclusive culture produces the best possible results for our people, our business, and our community. And that just makes us stronger.
Employee groups were established by and for employees to conduct networking events and seminars, host special guest speakers, raise funds for worthy causes, and mentor their colleagues.
It’s about benefits.
The aim? To give you flexibility and choice. An excellent benefits program is centered on you and your goals. To support you in making the right decisions for your family, we provide a benefits website, online decision-making tools, and location-specific seminars and events at many New York Life offices.
It’s about volunteering for good.
Whether it’s collecting food for the hungry, teaching a child to read, or volunteering as “Big Buddies” at childhood bereavement camps, New York Life agents and employees answer the call. In 2014, thousands of employees and agents across the nation donated over 68,000 hours of their time. Through the company’s “Give for Good” campaign in 2014, they pledged $4.8 million to 4,320 organizations and schools. Learn more about our volunteer opportunities.
The mutual advantage.
Here’s why we think it’s about working for a mutual company.
A mutual insurance company, simply put, is a company that is not publicly traded and therefore has no shareholders. Instead, policyholders are the ones who share in the ownership of the company. That means every decision we make is in the best interests of our policyholders.
