    I have been working at MetLife (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, poor pay. Talk alot about opportunity but none available. (unless your related)

    Cons

    I your on a call and your break or lunch arrives you miss your lunch or break, no pay. Same for the end of the day if your on a call you can't hang up, or get written up, but they won't pay you because the OT wasn't preapproved!

    Advice to Management

    You need to rethink you new stategies. Your reputation is taking a beating. Because the way you treat your employees is usually how you treat your customers.

    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.
