I worked at MetLife

Pros

Stable company. Strong senior management team.

Cons

Poor career advancement program. i was consistently a top performer and was rarely if ever presented with opportunities to take on new challenges. I have seen several top-notch people leave for this reason

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize your top performers and ensure that they are put on a path to success

    Well respected to the average person but you have to dig a little deeper.

    I have been working at MetLife

    Pros

    Good Benefits packages. Metlife does offer comprehensive benefits to its employees and if your a woman you do get a decent amount of time off if your pregnant. I'm a male so I don't get that same treatment, but you are able to carry over PTO days... up to 15 per year which is nice so you can schedule a longer vacation if you want to. Telecommuting is a nice option also.

    Cons

    Average pay starting out and a very complex salary grade system that doesn't really reward hard work. It seems that to make decent money you either have to get a great promotion or put in way too much time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the round table discussion and the rating system where everyone has to be rated from 1-5 and everyone HAS to have one of those numbers whether they deserve it or not. it's a rediculous rating system.
