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 Management

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

    Pros

    Amazing Benefits
    Comperable Total Compensation
    Flexible Word Schedules

    Cons

    It's very clear the most recent reorganization were made based on someone moving boxes on an org chart to middle managment that are "popular.' There was no understanding of the work that was actually being done by the groups that were moved. Six months later, still trying to sort out who should be doing what.

    How many hours you'll end up working really depends on where you work and who your manager is. Have been in groups where is 65 hour week is normal just to try to keep up and others where it's a standard 35 hours.

    Advice to Management

    You can't skate by on a "you're lucky to have a job" type of mentality much longer when dealing with employees. Things are getting better in the job market. After seeing friends and co-workers laid off around us, many people are doing the jobs of 2-3 people. You're going to start losing talent unless either the amount of work , deadlines or the headcount is adjusted.

    Pros

    Good benefits package
    Flexible Schedule
    Great MetLife Productline

    Cons

    Managers made when they clearly don't deserve to be
    No leadership
    No salary
    All they say is "get on the phone"...with no direction
    Very stressful job because it really is hard to make money

    Advice to Management

    Give a salary to people, then maybe you will have some people stay. In the 1+ year I was there, I've never seen so many people come and go. The job is very difficult and the only people who seem to be somewhat successful are the ones coming from a rich background or the ones who are fed all the good leads by managers. Basically, don't work there. Go work for a bank, at least there you'll get a decent salary.
