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

    Pros

    I learned a lot about outbound selling and marketing. I learned to close difficult cases alone.

    Cons

    There was no help from management on anything. Management was more interested in making and taking your sales then helping you to become a successful advisor.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your agents to become successful advisors.

    I have been working at MetLife full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are not that bad including health, 401k, vacation, and dental. Most people are helpful and not a lot of back stabbing.

    Cons

    Over 2600 IT workers are being transferred from multiple locations in the north east to North Carolina. Reapplying for your old job, including Personality tests and aptitude tests are required. The entire IT workforce is being disrupted in order to get 94 million in corporate welfare from the state of North Carolina. Moral is horrendous.

    Advice to Management

    Get a different career.
