    I worked at MetLife full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Long standing name in the industry

    Cons

    Outsources jobs and uses the excuse they need to do this because they are a global company
    Poor pay compared to other companies in the industry
    Management is full of Baby boomers that wont retire and have 1970's ideas...
    Every year there is a new goal/ new slogan (company is unable to focus and follow through anything)

    Advice to Management

    Get some younger blood in there to help create some new and fresh ideas.
    The old conservative approach is outdated and laying off people in order to boost your presence to the shareholders will only work for so long.(You cant fake the #'s if you dont have any employees left to do the work)

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Family friendly. Great benefits. Management is open to input and ideas. If you want to learn and grow the opportunity is there if you are satisfied with your position no one will force you to move.

    Cons

    To many processes. Takes too long to make changes when it is clear that something isn't working. Pay scales are such that people can be in the same scale even if one job requires more knowledge/ experience

    Advice to Management

    Don't take so long to make decisions.
