I worked at MetLife full-time

Pros

* Good, smart people you can learn from
* Good location
* Good benefits, good pay
* Plenty of opportunity to move around the company

Cons

* I worked for the worst manager of my career at Met.
* High pressure environment, working in ITAD was thankless when all went well, they rained hellfire from up above when all did not go well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire bad managers.

    Pros

    Big name, lots of products to present

    Cons

    Even though the company provides ongoing education, they require you to be so busy, it is difficult to receive any of the training. They are solely focused on "numbers" and don't care about their clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking at production numbers and see how you can make your FSRs become more successful for the long run. Actually CARE about your clients and making a difference in their lives. There is a reason why used car salesmen and insurance agents have such a bad rap!
