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

Pros

Very convenient to commute to.

Cons

Company takes advantage of above average work force, compensates them moderately. There are several very officers who are the experts in their field. However, there are others who are not knowledgeable, and very poor leaders.

Advice to Management

Should value employees who deliver, consistently, for several years. You should seek opportunities to reward them, and understand what opportunities your employees are looking for . (not the reverse!) You should recognize the talent that you have, and not always follow a popularity vote.

    "MetLife was extremely political, and the company value "People Count" did not square with my experience."

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

    Pros

    I worked with some great people, and the work was varied and interesting.

    Cons

    Training for new roles and responsibilities was uneven (some had great experience, I was thrown in water and told to learn to swim, only after I had "failed" was I told how to succeed)

    Advice to Management

    Treat people who work for you like you'd like to be treated, with respect and listen to them.
