Former Employee - Internal Wholesaler in Irvine, CA

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

Pros

young people on desk, decent pay, not very stressful, i enjoyed my time, plus get to be in sunny california which is never a bad thing! There are two sales desks though

Cons

Not much room for upside growth anymore with everything that has happend in economy. They are not really hiring external wholesalers from the desk anymore, I would expect more hybrids to be hired going froward.

    Former Employee - Analyst in Bridgewater, NJ

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

    Pros

    Generally nice and competent co-workers, good opportunities to transfer within very large company. Friendly to women and minorities. Above average benefits. Many learning and training opportunities in both classroom and online venues. Initiative is valued.

    Cons

    Managers are only loosely controlled, so there is considerable variation in style and quality of leadership. The hiring process is exceptionally slow for most IT positions.
