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

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    a lot of products to offer prospects but training all over the place.

    Cons

    Leads givens to senior reps, lack of focus on new reps after 19 weeks, infrasture for success not in place for inexperience reps. only 10% of earned commission is paid out. ex. 1000 in commission you at $100 in next weeks check assumming you are at the 63% commission pay out. Note it is a little detail than this but basically you are paid 10% of what you received in commissions.

    Advice to Management

    focus on a development track on marketing for new reps other than project 100. Pair new reps up with senior reps before the 19 wks are over that way the new reps will have some money to live off of and could better focus on what is best for the clients and not a sale for survival.
