“New York Life’s collaborative, diverse, and inclusive technology culture is well-positioned to attract and retain top tech talent."—Bill Cassidy, Chief Information Officer
According to New York Life Chief Information Officer Bill Cassidy, “New York Life’s collaborative, diverse, and inclusive technology culture is well-positioned to attract and retain top tech talent. As an innovative, tech-forward organization, we’re squarely focused on leveraging technology to tackle interesting and complex challenges to best serve our policy owners, agents, and employees. In regularly offering our team opportunities to cultivate and develop both hard and soft skills, we’re committed to empowering our talent to further their careers and prepare to be better leaders and managers.”
With these rankings, Everest’s goal is to capture the prevailing voice of the market and provide an “outside-in” view of how prospective candidates who are pursuing careers in tech functions perceive companies – aggregated from sources that include Glassdoor, Indeed, LinkedIn, and Everest’s own market conversations.
Alex Cook, Head of Strategic Capabilities at New York Life, explains, “As a Fortune 100 mutual company with no external shareholders and top-rated financial strength, we don’t face quarter-over-quarter pressure the way a publicly traded company does, ensuring that our interests are aligned with our policy owners and enabling us to take a long-term view on investing in and embarking on technology initiatives and seeing them through. Additionally, our technologists are an integral part of the business, partnering in cross-functional teams to enable New York Life to deliver the social good that’s at the heart of our mission: providing financial security and peace of mind to families across the country. Collectively, these aspects make for compelling and rewarding career opportunities.”
