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

    Great health benefits.
    Open door policy
    Competitive but not over competitive enviroment.
    Wealth of learning in the insurance and annuties industry.
    The company has taken numerous steps to ensure that it can meet all of its financial obligations. You will not see a situation like AIG here”No offense”. The company just moved to a new location, so there is a sense of excitement in the environment.
    You have numerous training opportunities, from toastmasters to other training programs that will prepare you for advancement or transition to another function area.

    Cons

    Starting salary to low.
    Pay scale after starting does not increase substantially.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the starting salary to attract top talent.
    Restructure the pay scale to retain top talent.
