I have been working at MetLife full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Metlife was known for taking care of its employees in the past which has inspired tremendous loyalty among its employees. Work-life balance is good.

Cons

Increased focus on outsourcing and bottomline has decreased moral significantly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Refocus the company on its employees. Reward and promote employees who have a track record of delivering results.

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

    Pros

    Great atmopshere
    Awesome training and leadership
    Huge selection of financial products
    Freedom to build your own practice

    Cons

    Over time you end up paying for everything. Your judgement gets clouded because if you don't sell MetLife life insurance or MetLife annuities, you won't get paid. Grid payout is based solely on your selling of MetLife products. As a planner (fiduciary), I shouldn't feel the pressure because of compensation, to recommend certain financial products that our proprietary. I feel like I have to be an annuity salesman to make a living

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't penalize reps compensation just because all situations don't require a "MetLife" product.

    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.
