I worked at MetLife full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of opportunity to move around and learn the business. Good benefits for long timers but a tendency to let folks go once they get to a certain level.

Cons

Shifting priorities occasionally create dysfunctional environment.

Advice to Management

If your core principles include "people count" then layoffs of high performing employees should be more rare. Rank & file employees often see officers sent packing. Makes them more hesitant to express an interest in advancement or share ideas / opinions that could drive business.

    I worked at MetLife full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Competitive pay compared to others in the area

    Cons

    Training a bit scattered. Supervision doesn't seem to know what to do. No basic metric to follow so one supervisor will tell you something completely different than another.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice vacation, decent salary

    Cons

    backbiting, backstabbing, political environment. Politics outweigh results. If you are in with the right people you will go far. If you have different ideas, please for your own sake keep them to yourself, no one is interested in hearing them. This is the worst place I've ever worked and as soon as the economy opens up I'm out of here. Hopefully, the toxic environment will not beat me down by then.

    Advice to Management

    What's the use. They aren't intelligent enough to hear them.
