I have been working at MetLife

Pros

Good hours. The pay is decent. I enjoy the people I work with in my immediate group. My manager is very flexible and doesn't require more hours than are necessary to get the job done. Business casual dress is the norm. I don't feel micro-managed by my supervisors.

Cons

Difficult to get promotions. Low salary raises. Its hard to get the inside track. The bonuses don't compare to investment banks. No holiday party. The company is pretty conservative.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to get a better handle on how employees feel.

    Pros

    Only if you really do not have any options and homelessness is near, then I would think about joining NEF

    Cons

    Everything. The company is poorly managed and does not invest to insure a competitive advantage. It is not innovative, nor a satisfying place to work. The business model is to sell, take the gross margin, distribute amoung the general agency managers and invest as little as possible just to pay the bills for the next month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get training, education, and understanding of what makes a great manager. Learn ethics about business practices.
