New York Life Insurance Co.
New York Life Insurance Co. is the largest mutual life insurer in the U.S. In addition to providing insurance and annuities to its clients, NYLIC offers securities products and mutual funds.
In early 2007, the company made a prescient move and significantly reduced its positions in credit and debt and invested instead in T-bills and other, more secure instruments. As a result, NYLIC is in excellent financial health and has retained top ratings. NYLIC is in such good shape that it declined to accept any TARP money.
New York Life Insurance Co. goes all out on its Web site to attract qualified recruits. The company touts everything from its diversity programs to its myriad awards. Regardless of whether you're applying for a sales position or something in corporate, NYLIC offers a wealth of information on its site and likely expects candidates to read it.
