Current Employee - Intern in Long Island City, NY
Current Employee - Intern in Long Island City, NY
Approves of CEO

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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Company name, excellent training, reputation, good products, worldwide brand recognition. MetLife has an excellent reputation and when you are telling people who you work for they have a pretty good impression

    High advisor dropout rate, but well worth the training.

    high expenses, manager has too much leeway to "take care of" buddies, at expense of others in office, will make promises to get you on board to fulfill recruiting quota
