June 2017

New York Life claims to be a trusted company. It is not. I whistle blew and was let go. The senior management is mostly men and they look down on women.

May 2017

Great maternity and paternity leave. Not very flexible on work arrangements. Pay is just below the market.

    There seems to be a lot of flexibility the higher you get, but for mid-level it may exist, but it's very much frowned upon within the culture. As in, management will continuously voice how they don't like work from home arrangements, etc.

Good place to work if you are decades into your career and want to coast until retirement. Not ideal for those looking to grow their careers at a fast pace.

    Reward talent, drive and leadership potential over tenure.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Flexible work arrangements and reasonable hours to promote work/life balance. In terms of career growth, the opportunities are limited and promotions happen very slowly (after several years, if at all).

March 2017

They promote women within to leadership opportunities and also provide a lot of support for women throughout the company. Very male dominant from years past, but the women across the country are incredibly talented and it is a great network to work with.

Prudential is very employee-focused and strives for equal treatment of both genders. They also have generous family leave and work life balance policies.

October 2016

In principle the company is really trying to get people to think about flexible hours, but there are many 'dinosaurs' working there that think work life balance means you flex your day 30 min to go to the bank before work and then compensate those 30 min in that same day. It is very outdated..... so it really depends on who you work for. I would suggest you carefully consider who is your line manager before joining. However with so much turnover, you may not have your boss too long.... mine quit before I started :-( and this impacted my experience.
