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

Pros

MetLife was a good company to work for. Good training program and great mentorship program. Good base pay in the beginning and good commission pay after training period. Good products.

Cons

Downside is that the training was somewhat segmented when I was there. We had a great system in our region, but I heard bad experiences in other regions. Managers, as with any job, can be micromanagers, especially when the office is not hitting its targets.

    I have been working at MetLife full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Able to work from home during the week which helps alot. Good benefits, except for Vision. Lots of learning opportunities (webinars, seminars, clubs, etc.)

    Cons

    No growth unless you are a favorite. Internal recruiters are running a mill. Difficult to transfer to a new position unless you know someone. Managers have no real experience only been at the company for 20+ years so they promote them to the next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees feel undervalued and marginalized. Recognize the talent right under your nose. The talent may not look exactly like you, but they're there.
