I worked at MetLife

Pros

Everyone should want to work for Snoopy! I can't say enough good things about the place. Great benefits and great opportunities.

Cons

Salaries at Metlife are not as good as other employers. Sometimes senior management and "food chain" can get a bit "big headed."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure employees are being compensated fairly. There are many businesses in lower cost of living areas that get paid better.

    Understand that Met wins whether you succeed or fail, and the numbers say you will fail.

    Pros

    make your own hours.
    Set salary for first 19 weeks.
    commission pay can be good if you are of the 14% of new reps that manage to succeed.

    Cons

    Pay system structured in most confusing way possible and was is not explained to employees are left to find out how it works as they go on. Management has little idea of what it takes to manage people/ only concerned with selling product regardless of client need or interest. Poor benefits for young representatives with no family. Program designed for new reps to rush in, sell to direct familiy and be out of the business short thereafter. 86% failure rate always a win for Mother Met and they do not care to change business model. Smart for them, not so much for prospective employees. Very unprofessional work environment and managers generally only are concerned with bringing in the next wave of representatives rather than help current ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    nothing theyre not going to change their business plan or the way they do business. Emotionally, physically and mentally exhausted from working 75+ hours a week. Be more understanding when employees need time off.

    Good company, nice sounding mission statement, but actions speak louder than words

    I have been working at MetLife

    Pros

    Good benefits, generally good people, good products and financial strength to offer to the consumer

    Cons

    Silos everyone protects the area they're in, lots of back stabbers, have to know how to play the political game or you get poor reviews. In consistent application of rules, such as telecommuting, senior managers don't know or appreciate what subordinates are really doing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to people you've put into responsible positions, technology does not seem to understand the end users

    No opinion of CEO
