Annuities Customer Service: Offered Position was UNABLE to accept.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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 Senior ManagementThis 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.

wasted over 10 years of my professional life.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

Prospaid well, good bonuses,good company match.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementHave 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
