    I worked at MetLife full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was competitive with other employers. Remote work is great when management is experienced working with remote employees, and in theory this should have been a very easy, efficient arrangement.

    Cons

    This employer does not know how to manage remote employees, systems inadequate to support remote work, managers use intimidation and massive micro-management instead of getting to know their team members' strengths and working with them. Systems used to manage workflow are designed for health insurance claims which are 99% one and done, while disability claims can go on for months or even years. Highly frustrating as it is impossible to organize information in a logical manner. This workplace will make you tear your hair out.

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced professionals and let them do their jobs. Micro-management makes employees miserable and does not improve service. Of 20 employees in my training group, only 3 remained after two years.
