Careers that make a difference. Every single day.

Our culture.

What does working at New York Life feel like? After all, you’ll want it to be a good fit.

New York Life is a company that works as a team. Our employees support one another and work toward common goals—and while we strive for excellence always, we know it’s how we achieve excellence that truly counts. Thoughtful, responsible, collaborative—we are proud of the reputation we hold in our industry and proud to be stewards of a company that puts clients first. After all, we’re clients, too. 

We collaborate, to make sure we deliver the absolute best for our clients. We go above and beyond to give back. And we never seek financial gains at the expense of our values.

So, in short, it feels good.

See yourself here.

This has always been a pretty special place. Take it from the people who know first-hand. Here are some of the nice things our employees have said about us on Glassdoor: 


"Greatest opportunity in corporate America."

Right out of college, I had an opportunity with New York Life. It wasn't easy. I knew nothing about the insurance and financial services industries. But the training and development were exceptional, and have led me to the success I have today.

— Agent in Glendale, CA


"Ethics in action always leads to excellence in action." 

Great opportunities for growth, personally and professionally. Great system to review performance on a yearly basis. It allows you to keep tabs on how you are doing on a professional level, gives you lots of opportunities to grow throughout the year, and makes it easy to be recognized for contributions you have made.

— Client Service Representative in Tampa, FL

“NYL is a large company that allows you to transition into a variety of positions where you can learn and grow.”

Best reasons to work here are company stability, training opportunities, comprehensive benefit package including a defined benefits pension plan, and professional growth. The culture is like a tight-knit family where relationships are cultivated over lunch or after work get-togethers.
