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

Pros

Great atmopshere
Awesome training and leadership
Huge selection of financial products
Freedom to build your own practice

Cons

Over time you end up paying for everything. Your judgement gets clouded because if you don't sell MetLife life insurance or MetLife annuities, you won't get paid. Grid payout is based solely on your selling of MetLife products. As a planner (fiduciary), I shouldn't feel the pressure because of compensation, to recommend certain financial products that our proprietary. I feel like I have to be an annuity salesman to make a living

Advice to Management

Don't penalize reps compensation just because all situations don't require a "MetLife" product.

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

    Pros

    MetLife was a good company to work for. Good training program and great mentorship program. Good base pay in the beginning and good commission pay after training period. Good products.

    Cons

    Downside is that the training was somewhat segmented when I was there. We had a great system in our region, but I heard bad experiences in other regions. Managers, as with any job, can be micromanagers, especially when the office is not hitting its targets.
