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

Pros

I got to meet a lot of actuarial students, had a lot of freedom and flexibility, and was respected. I got a bit of insight into the insurance industry,

Cons

I felt like I was only hired to make a quota and ended up spending much of my internship "finding things to do." This seemed to be okay with everyone, and probably the norm, but I wish I learned more.

Advice to Management

Your intentions are well, but perhaps come up with a more in-depth program.

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

    Pros

    I was able to work with a Financial Advisor and his clients to get hands on experience in financial planning. I learned a lot more from the FA I worked with compared to the internship curriculum.

    Cons

    Employees in workplace were competing for same clients, which led to a tense work environment. Not a strong sense of direction throughout the internship. Did not seem to lead to a good work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    To value and trust employees.
