It was a fairly enjoyable place to work until the recent restructuring.

I have been working at MetLife (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good work life balance. The sales force is one of the best in the industry, both internal and external wholesalers.

Cons

Extremely conservative culture. Risk taking and innovation are rare. The recent focus on cost cutting and expense management have adversely affected morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company does a great job at outlining its big picture strategic direction, but many at the lower levels feel left in the dark about the implications for them.

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

    Pros

    I learned a lot and worked on real projects. I was treated with respect and it wasn't a demanding job. My bosses were very helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    Not the most outgoing people, so it made for a quiet work day. They also don't seem to be in a hiring phase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve collaborative work environment, boost employee morale
