I worked at MetLife

Pros

good exposure to products, good internal product support

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take stpes to enforce uniform administration of the business model in all offices
