It was good at first, then ok

Former Employee - General Office Assistant in Mesa, AZ
Former Employee - General Office Assistant in Mesa, AZ

I worked at MetLife full-time (more than an 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.

    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.
