I have been working at MetLife

Pros

I'm only interning at MetLife, but the few months I've been here have been great. Friendly, knowledgeable mentors and a very relaxed work environment. The employee gym and group fitness classes are fantastic. No issues taking time off or leaving early (on occasion). Many employees get to work from home. This is definitely a well-renown company so it looks great on your resume

Cons

The hourly pay for interns is severely lacking compared to other companies. They are definitely getting their money's worth from the work they have me doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need a mix of younger talent within the company. All of the job postings, even within MetLiife's internal job posting site, are for senior positions. Put more effort in trying to retain and attract younger talent.

    Terrible - false promises, opportunities subject to manager discretion - strong "buddy system"
