I have been working at MetLife full-time (more than an year)Pros
* Allows you to draw a salary [very low] till you find something else.
* Handful of nice genuine people [exception rather than the norm].
* Occasional free food [with no respect for dietary styles other than the good ole' fashioned southern style meat & potatoes].
* New buildings in Cary [all about form but no function].
* GREAT for mature employees who want to bridge retirement by clocking in and clocking out in a very very very traditional corporate setting.Cons
Where does one start, so much to tell................
1) Old school management and leadership with very hierarchical "us - Chiefs" and "them - Indians" culture.
2) Very antiquated technology yet the division in Raleigh is called "Global Technology Operations [GTO]". Don't believe they know the meaning of either word [global or technology].
3) Struggles to define Innovation so force feeds the "innovation and transformation" drink at a week long on-boarding [which is nothing more than their feeble attempt to brainwash you].
4) Big impressive titles but total bait and switch in roles and responsibilities once you start the job!!!!!
5) VERY POLITICAL environment. One one think it's a government entity with titles like "Chief of Staff, Secretary to Officer, etc., etc., etc.".
6) Nothing more than a big tent of mostly circus performers who have been let go from other companies and are now trying to establish themselves in position of power but are not empowered to do so at all.
7) TRANSFORMATION and INNOVATION are yet other big buzz word they they struggle to define or understand.
8) Titles are dime a dozen thus most managers and above would struggle to survive as worker bees in other companies around here.
9) Personal growth and career advancement absolutely non-existent unless you agree to be a robot for management.
10) Way below average pay and benefits compared to other companies in the area.
11) Preach and advertise flexible work environment but everyone is expected to be on-site at all times to "collaborate" [another buzz word] and do not support telecommuting to any extent in this day and age!
12) Company is all about image and image only!
13) Low morale, high attrition.
I can go on and on but the bottom line is:
14) If you have a brain that you want to utilize and value what you bring to the table............DO NOT WORK AT METLIFE!!!!!Advice to ManagementAdvice
a) Hire some new blood and kick your existing management/leadership out of the Ivory Tower they seem to think they live in.
b) Teach your execs [CIO and down stream ] that there is much more to running a division than bolstering their own egos, running their personal agendas and being money hungry minions.
c) Stop pretending to be a tech company that you clear are not!
d) HOPELESS unless your culture dramatically changes and it will not as long as you keep i) transporting your senior management with archaic mentality from NY/NJ/Boston here and ii) they keep hiring people in the same comfort zone as their own [OLD SCHOOL].
e) This is a technically robust and thriving area of the country with highly talented people, utilize it!
f) Learn to value and respect your employees.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
