I worked at MetLife full-time for more than a year

Pros

Opportunity to serve public through back office support role, learned the products and liked them.

Cons

Person who hired me was great, but he stepped down from his role. Person who took over had a different mindset and I think they decided to work me out of the company. I was not girly-girly enough to fit in with the other women, although that was not the reason they gave for letting me go. Also, some bosses I dealt with daily had a problem with me taking the standard breaks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't expect the impossible. I was not trained and given adequate time for position they switched me to in order to dispose of me.

    I worked at MetLife full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very convenient to commute to.

    Cons

    Company takes advantage of above average work force, compensates them moderately. There are several very officers who are the experts in their field. However, there are others who are not knowledgeable, and very poor leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should value employees who deliver, consistently, for several years. You should seek opportunities to reward them, and understand what opportunities your employees are looking for . (not the reverse!) You should recognize the talent that you have, and not always follow a popularity vote.

    I worked at MetLife full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very laid back, Good for folks with families

    Cons

    Absolutely no chance of moving up. There is a constant influx of senior management from outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bringing in people from outside. The new senior management is bringing their own people. This keeps repeating once every 2 years.
