I worked at MetLife as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

most of employee are willing to help each other

Cons

I think customer service should come first but when your timed you can't give all thats needed ..its hurry up hang up then finish in between calls which most the time theres no inbetween
system needs upgrading it times out to quick which takes up time during call .. if system ran smoother would be better

Advice to Management

let temps know their in danger of losing job if its something they can fix or stepup on, but to get phone call first thing in morning with no warning that not to go to work that was a complete shock

    I have been working at MetLife full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not homogenous, you can get a variety of experience in different parts of Corporate Finance/Accounting
    Pay is decent relative to competitors in the area*
    Travel and other opportunities for exposure with the right connections within the organization
    Flexible work arrangements

    Cons

    *Pay is below the national average for the role
    Outsourcing higher level finance functions (India), creates concerns for growth and job security
    You're only as good as your manager, the performance structure forces people to compete against peers
    You have to seek out development opportunities, management doesnt seem as vested,
    The "right connections" is a slippery slope. You have to network to survive, but if it doesn't work out your career will stall
    People will do stuff the way it was always done without thinking outside the box or questioning

    Advice to Management

    Develop your employees to maintain quality in this global environment. Revamp the whole performance review/bonus structure.
