    Pros

    Snoopy, flexible work & laid-back environment, good support during the first 19 weeks.

    Cons

    Most other financial services companies in the industry will pay between 45% and 60% of production with most office expenses paid for. However, MetLife takes half of the production and also charges all expenses to the agent after 3 years. This means that you, the agent, will pay for your office space per sq. feet, your laptop, network access, front desk lady, compliance, chair, postage, E&O insurance, state registration fees, federal registration fees etc. During my 3rd year, my net expenses totaled $22,000 (net out of pocket) just to work for MetLife. I had to PAY them to work there. The problem with this is that the average MetLife agent in 2009 across the US made a gross of $24,000 a year. This meant that the average agent had to use their credit cards to get by and eventually quit with a handful of debt. As long as you understand MetLife's program and what I wrote on here, it's a good experience.

    Advice to Management

    Be more agent centric with a better program.
