    I have been working at MetLife Alico (less than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyment of days with a full task margin.

    Cons

    Leaving prepared to come home to a failed day off, unlocking the door. To viewing the transportation need because we have to rely on ourselves to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work towards car pooling not away, practical ways we adjust in a work day.

    I have been working at MetLife Alico full-time

    Pros

    Employees are friendly, talented and professional. The client really does come first. After the Great East Japan Earthquake, payouts were made to policyholders despite clauses in the insurance contracts exempting the company from liability due to natural disasters.

    Cons

    Management is too Japanese. Employees are evaluated on whether or not they work long hours, and women are automatically disqualified from management positions when they have spouses and/or children because they "cannot do the overtime". (In which automatic overtime means working full time to a manager.) Also, salaries are too low, but are comparable in Japan. Attendance at drinking parties, as well as the consumption of alcohol, are required in order to get a good review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kick out the middle managers, and replace with truly international managers. Even the Japanese managers with international experience are "Japanese". Set up new employee evaluation metrics that are merit-based.

    Pros

    If you have good relations and good communications skills that is good but not enough, the economic problems make this job very hard in the middle east.

    Cons

    No real salary, just some money paid monthly for transportation but the employee income depends on commissions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a little more to encourage agents to work fair.
