Pros

Working at MetLife as an Financial Services Representative can be a very rewarding experience for the right person. In addition to the ability to make a very nice income, the knowledge that making a indelible mark upon the future of others is priceless.

Cons

As with any Financial Services Company, it is a highly regulated environment so there is much to learn and a career such as this isn't for everyone. It requires high energy, an open mind, high discipline and a committment to excellence.

Advice to Management

It is always important to be as people focused as possible. Profit doesn't drive your people, people drive your profit.

    Pros

    Nice office, great support system

    Cons

    Compensation is paid out too slowly...commissions go into a pool and you are paid out 10-20% a week...takes too long to get paid on business. Changing management for the worse.

    Advice to Management

    Top heavy, over compensated

    Pros

    MetLife is a fortune 50 company with solid financial standing in the market. It is one of the few companies in the industry that came out strong from the 2008 recession. The company provides decent benefits and a healthy work-life balance.

    Cons

    Due the pros mentioned above and MetLife reliance on external talent for its leadership roles, I think the career growth for internal employees is very limited. Generally, the middle management employees are content with what they do and get, and that leaves very little growth opportunities for new talent and lower level employees to fine and take more challenging roles.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and groom internal talent to propel the company into becoming a world class multinational.
