    I worked at MetLife full-time

    Pros

    I was with Met for several years. I think they foster a sincere atmosphere of integrity and wanting to do the best for their clients.

    Cons

    Too many systems, too much bureaucracy, too much emphasis on internal reporting. So much of my job had to do with internal BS when it should have been spent strategizing and executing on behalf of my client. Also, certain employees seem to be preselected for advancement, negating opportunities for the office as a whole. Sometimes posting a job was a charade and sometimes wasn't even bothered with.
