    Pros

    All in all, comp is competitive, work flexible (although lots of it) They work them to death, but treat officers well culture of company is strong (with history) so easy to feel like part of something "bigger"

    Cons

    late to game on offshoring/outsourcing and now too aggressive in some cases. Don't appreciate people who have an opinion, those who hide in nice powerpoints, always smile and get nothing done seem to perpetuate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remote Employment turned my home into a sweatshop

    Former Employee - Disability Case Manager in Oriskany, NY

    I worked at MetLife full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay was competitive with other employers. Remote work is great when management is experienced working with remote employees, and in theory this should have been a very easy, efficient arrangement.

    Cons

    This employer does not know how to manage remote employees, systems inadequate to support remote work, managers use intimidation and massive micro-management instead of getting to know their team members' strengths and working with them. Systems used to manage workflow are designed for health insurance claims which are 99% one and done, while disability claims can go on for months or even years. Highly frustrating as it is impossible to organize information in a logical manner. This workplace will make you tear your hair out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire experienced professionals and let them do their jobs. Micro-management makes employees miserable and does not improve service. Of 20 employees in my training group, only 3 remained after two years.
