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

Pros

Great brand, solid benefits, well intentioned people "practices".

Cons

ENORMOUS amounts of change in a short window, with only more to come. Leadership is absolutely well intentioned, but the process to drive change is scattered and inconsistent. Several new leaders come in bright eyed and excited about driving much needed change, but they often get bogged down in meetings and deliverables. Next thing you know, they've been onboard long enough to fall into the same old same old culture of survival.

Advice to Management

Slow down. Look at the talent that you do have. Stop belabouring the point that that the talent you need isn't there. They may very well be, but you're killing them slowly.

    I have been working at MetLife as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    MetLife taught me a lot and the managers and VP's almost all started off as sales associates and worked there way up from there. This serves as motivation to move up the ranks with hard work.

    Cons

    If there is a lack of motivation then you can easily get stuck in a middle management position

    Advice to Management

    Provide more incentives to work hard

    Great work life balance with great hours

    Cons

    Too complacent at the director level and career progression is dependent on your specific manager.
