I worked at MetLife full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of opportunity to move around and learn the business. Good benefits for long timers but a tendency to let folks go once they get to a certain level.

Cons

Shifting priorities occasionally create dysfunctional environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If your core principles include "people count" then layoffs of high performing employees should be more rare. Rank & file employees often see officers sent packing. Makes them more hesitant to express an interest in advancement or share ideas / opinions that could drive business.

    Pros

    You never have to explain who Snoopy is. Never had a financial issue in paying customers.

    Cons

    Inexperienced back office can degrade customer service after you have handled them. Compliance is overly strict and inflexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return phone calls. Address employee complaints as efficiently as customer complaints.

    Could have better grid rates
    HotLines are not always as helpful as one could hope for
