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

    Pros

    Excellent training program for learning how to sell financial products
    Better than average comp plan for entry level sales agent
    Good product set to offer

    Cons

    Comp plan gets tough after initial period. You have to have a pipeline.

    Commission based salary may be difficult for some people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a better program for developing sales leaders and retaining talent. The best sales people often leave and the managers are picked from those that stay around the longest and don't always earn it.

    Pros

    Benefit package is good. Pay is average.

    Cons

    management needs management skills. Lotsa empty promises. They have great ideas and if it doesn't work it the staffs fault. You have a good Idea, they take credit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dump middle management if you really want to be a customer centric company.
