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

Pros

Work-life balance is important. People work with high integrity and morals. Smart employees.

Cons

Bump into folks who have an "insurance company" mentality. Pay is average. Not a highly competitive place.

Advice to Management

Pay for performance and create paths for young, high performers to want to stay....getting better at it but plenty of room for improvement.

    I have been working at MetLife full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall name recognition of company. Financial ratings of company. Product offerings were competitive in the industry. The top mascot branding of all mascots. Snoopy rocks.

    Cons

    Inconsistent management philosophies. Unethical management hiring practices. Hired away from competitor to fill Sales Manager (Functional Specialist) position. Position never actually even existed. Less than average training programs. Minimal administrative support. Compliance and regulatory guidance was non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Sales management needs to work on their integrity.

    I worked at MetLife as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Networking among peers is great and it is a friendly working environment. As an intern, I was exposed to senior management and learned many useful skills to used in the corporate world.

    Cons

    Typically, it is a conservative company. Hence, there is not much room for innovation and new ideas. As a 23 year old, I would prefer to work for a company that values new technologies as I am an IT major.
