I worked at MetLife full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

They are large enough to provide the support and knowledge necessary to succeed

Cons

Because of their size, they can move their emphazis from one division to another, leaving you in the shadows.

Advice to Management

Improve upon you people (employee) skills. Many employees feel that management looks at them as a number, rahter than a valued employee

    I have been working at MetLife full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    MetLife offers great products to customers. Great benefits for employees. Opportunity for advancement if you have the right support from management.

    Cons

    Management has a tendency to put such a large unrealistic work load on the employees they work extremely long hours and the likelihood of burnout is great. There is very little work/life balance. Management also has a tendency to pick their favorites to give projects to or listen to for suggestions, these tend to be the same employees that bully other employees and cause a very low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to take the time to listen to all their employees thoughts and suggestions. They need to recognize their tendency to push employees to the limit with work load and work hours, especially for the salaried employees that will not be compensated for extra hours, but are expected to make up hours if they have to leave early for an appointment or even for a funeral.


  2. "Successful advisors receive additional resources and is a good position only for those with existing networks."

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

    Pros

    flexible work hours - strong company name - wide range of products - influence within institutional divisions - competitive industry compensation and benefits

    Cons

    upper management is focused solely on product turnover and activity - significant micromanagement for advisors who dont exceed the highest commission expectations - minimal advanced concept strategy training - company is not viewed as a prime player in the asset management/broker dealer market

    Advice to Management

    separate the company marketing focus into the low level/high volume life insurance division and into the broker dealer asset management/retirement solutions division in terms of commercials
