    I have been working at MetLife full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Solid pay and benefits package. For young talent, there are great opportunities for exposure to senior leadership, of you push yourself and show initiative.

    Cons

    As others mentioned, some departments are top-heavy and it is a very bureaucratic system, which makes getting a project done, no matter how small, a huge undertaking. IT systems are very slow and outdated, but there are never enough resources to update.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is largely new (<2years), and highly competent and capable. They are doing the right things, it just takes time.
