Pros

Great chance for feedback from managament, 360 reviews are done as well. Working from home is generally speaking, fine for all groups , but some groups allow a very flexible work from home arrangement. My group allows approximately once or twice a month. My personal experience is that there are opportunities within your own department for career advancement but just like anywhere else, it all depends on how you play the game.

Cons

Departmental head not supportive of the group. Pay could be better. I've received raises for the past two years consistently but it all depends on how well you are rated. Employee morale is currently low as a result of the recent financial situation eveywhere and everyone knowing that there will be a round of layoffs in the end of October.

Advice to Management

Operational Excellence is confusing and needs clarification

    "Met is great. Beware the screaming tyrant in Long Island City who seriously violates HR policies. Can we say law suit?"

    Pros

    As long as you aren't in Long Island City, great place to work.

    Cons

    Back biting, controlling VP in corporate controllers. Serious HR violations. Beware, it will be a struggle to survive under this tyrant - the sky is always falling. In 12 months 6 new employees to the same position... Go figure. Met is great. She needs to go.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously evaluate HR complaints before they become law suits.

    Pros

    Big company that's not going anywhere. Fair pay and benefits. Good opportunity for advancement provided you are well liked. Work life balance is ok, and depending on your manager, they can be very fair. Can work remotely although that seems to be in jeopardy right now. Location isn't too bad. Some smart people working there and the opportunity for productive teamwork is high (depending on whom you are working with). Most of the people (at a certain level) are good, friendly, caring people that are willing to help.

    Cons

    Current Senior management basically clueless and care little for the worker bees. Cronyism is running rampant at Met. Worker morale is very low at this point and for good reason. Many jobs are being outsourced and people are scared for their livlihoods.
