    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...

    Pros

    - Good Work Life balance - 7 hrs per day working hour
    No body asks you to work extra hours even if there is a large business impact.
    And when there is a real business need which affects the company at the highest level...Then you are paid extra for any extra hours

    Cons

    - No processes followed
    - There are process documents to show to regulators for audit but nothing is followed, or embedded
    - Managers have minimal execution power in the company.
    - Company is not suitable for the Projects
    - Project managers are useless
    - Lots of politics

    Advice to Management

    - Have a business strategy
    - Roll out processes and ensure processes are followed.
    - Stop bureaucracy
