    Pros

    Employees are friendly, talented and professional. The client really does come first. After the Great East Japan Earthquake, payouts were made to policyholders despite clauses in the insurance contracts exempting the company from liability due to natural disasters.

    Cons

    Management is too Japanese. Employees are evaluated on whether or not they work long hours, and women are automatically disqualified from management positions when they have spouses and/or children because they "cannot do the overtime". (In which automatic overtime means working full time to a manager.) Also, salaries are too low, but are comparable in Japan. Attendance at drinking parties, as well as the consumption of alcohol, are required in order to get a good review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kick out the middle managers, and replace with truly international managers. Even the Japanese managers with international experience are "Japanese". Set up new employee evaluation metrics that are merit-based.

    Positive Outlook

    Internal Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at MetLife Alico in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone screen and subsequently went in for an interview. People were nice and interview questions were very straight forward. Met with internal recruiter that I had previously phone screened with. She was very helpful and gave me some great insights. She was a contract recruiter which was interesting because she wasn't sure where the position would sit. Met with the hiring manager who was recently hired also. She was very knowledgeable, but in the end, the position was not right for me.
