    Pros

    There are a lot of great people working in IT, and most are team oriented. Compensation, Benefits, work schedules, and flexibility are all very good.

    Cons

    Since the company went public, corporate culture seems has changed and the employees have taken a back seat to investors. Employees in IT are generally limited to one area of expertise, limiting exposure to that one skill set. This makes it difficult to change jobs, as most companies are looking for a broader range of experience. Metlife employees call this the silo effect.

    Advice to Management

    favoritism is alive and well at Metlife. Compensation, Leadership, and promotions are discriminatory in many areas. Some male managers show favoritism towards female employees, and this is ignored by senior management (maybe because most are male themselves). In my area, male employees were (and still are) constantly harassed and picked on, whereas female employees are always treated with respect.
