Thoughts on NY Life and Northwestern


Hello everyone,

I have narrowed my search to Northwestern and NY Life. I was wondering if anyone here worked for either company, and the pros and cons in your opinion with them as well.

Thank you
Both good captive companies to start at with pretty similar product line and market. Local office management will matter most here. Interview with both of them.
Ditto to what Walt said. Local management plays a big role in things.

However, NM has a true business model for agents to follow, that if implemented correctly, will lead to a successful and scalable office model. NYL will not teach you that.

Product and target markets are basically identical.

(Im a former NYL agent, who is extremely impressed with the NM offices (and former NM offices) I have encountered)
