    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.

    Increased focus on outsourcing and bottomline has decreased moral significantly.

    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 Management

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