  2.  

    Horrible experience in my branch office. Abusive, unethical and discriminatory. Promises made and not kept.

    I have been working at MetLife of Connecticut full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Home office is excellent. Too bad experience in 1 office that is a branch ruins it. Pay is pretty good too, if you want to be chained to a desk from 9-5 and then expected to also run appointment with your agents evenings and weekends.

    Cons

    If working in a field office, these offices are like silos and all run very differently. Home office needs to really be more aware of the practices in each office to watch for discriminatin and unethical behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assist people from career pathing. Culture needs to be more diversified and diversity friendly. Home office needs to know what is going on in the field with their managers.

    I worked at MetLife of Connecticut

    Pros

    •Nice professional atmosphere
    •Extensive background check
    •Employees seem to be very professional
    •Mixed crowd
    •On-site, convenient parking
    •ID required to sign in EVEN for interview

    Cons

    •3-4 hour testing needed prior to interview invitation
    •Can not work here with unsatisfactory credit!!!!
       Meaning if you have any accounts in collections, don't waste your time.
    •Will offer you job without advising based on credit check.
    •Phone interview was long
    •Face-to-face interview was about an hour
    •Drug testing facility only open during normal business hours so if you work it's hard to get in there.
    •Employment contingent on passing series 6 test after you get through all the other mess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company may want to reconsider their requirements when it comes to credit and the pay wasn't worth all the trouble. Should be very clear with salary up-front as well as credit requirements.

    I worked at MetLife of Connecticut full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    paid well, good bonuses,good company match.

    Cons

    paid for it as a higher paid, older, employee was terminated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have no advice. Management has a "God complex." The term "thought leadership" is a joke. Not a healthy work environment, physically or mentally. Was diagnosed with Sick Building Syndrome, my coughing and hacking has stopped since leaving. Out sick 3 times in 10 years (total 7 days). Was once a valued employee, several Individual and Group Disability recognition awards, was terminated due to age. Career opportunities are plentiful if you are willing to subject yourself to tyranny.
