I worked at MetLife as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

I got to meet a lot of actuarial students, had a lot of freedom and flexibility, and was respected. I got a bit of insight into the insurance industry,

Cons

I felt like I was only hired to make a quota and ended up spending much of my internship "finding things to do." This seemed to be okay with everyone, and probably the norm, but I wish I learned more.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your intentions are well, but perhaps come up with a more in-depth program.

    I worked at MetLife as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was able to work with a Financial Advisor and his clients to get hands on experience in financial planning. I learned a lot more from the FA I worked with compared to the internship curriculum.

    Cons

    Employees in workplace were competing for same clients, which led to a tense work environment. Not a strong sense of direction throughout the internship. Did not seem to lead to a good work/life balance.

    Salary is lower then others in the industry. Manager's and employee's are not friendly and will do whatever it takes to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To value and trust employees.
