I worked at MetLife full-time

Pros

* Good location
* Good benefits, good pay
* Plenty of opportunity to move around the company

Cons

* I worked for the worst manager of my career at Met.
* High pressure environment, working in ITAD was thankless when all went well, they rained hellfire from up above when all did not go well.

Advice to Management

Fire bad managers.

    I worked at MetLife full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company offered great benefits, including health, dental, long and short term disability, and life insurance. They had a matching 401K option, and flexible spending accounts. The office hours were Monday - Friday, and would provide flexible schedules including 4 - 10 hour shifts, or split shifts to accomidate for employees going back to school or with special needs.

    Cons

    The insurance industry flows with the financial sector in the market. If the financial or insurance companies are impacted, Metlife also receives a blow. Also, MetLife began offshoring and outsourcing some of its customer service positions. Representatives are now required to be more valuable by cross training on multiple product lines.
