    Pros

    Loved the people here at the company. However, now that MetLife took over, everyone was fired or took their severance package and left.

    Cons

    When it was part of AIG, it was fantastic. Now that it is under MetLife, they have mapped their organizational structure onto here and it is terrible. MetLife is a horrible company.

    Pros

    benefits are good. The people I work with made it better, not the managers though. Facility is good. Thats about it.

    Cons

    No support or guidance from the manager. No visibilty or career advancement opportunities. Shoot from the hip kind of approach to problem solving.

    Advice to Management

    Respect, trust and empower your people. It will serve you good. Your insecurities are your own enemy. When you see your own subordinate as your competitor, its a pretty sad thing...

    The financial situation created in 2008, made ALICO to go into a spin off process nevertheless it was a very profitable operation.

    You did a great job. It was a pity that the company had to be sold to new investors. Look for a smooth integration with Metlife
