I worked at MetLife full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very laid back, Good for folks with families

Cons

Absolutely no chance of moving up. There is a constant influx of senior management from outside.

Advice to Management

Stop bringing in people from outside. The new senior management is bringing their own people. This keeps repeating once every 2 years.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
