    I worked at MetLife full-time

    Pros

    Great medical and dental benefits

    Cons

    No loyalty or respect for great, hard working employees. They lay off good seasoned people just to hire cheaper labor.

    Advice to Management

    If the Customer is the top priority as you say, you should keep the good seasoned, hard working employees to continue to provide that great customer service. That is what will keep the customer.

    I have been working at MetLife full-time

    Pros

    People are friendly for the most part. Challenging work.

    Cons

    Way too much work to do in a day, way too much following up by management; management is reactive instead of proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people to do their job. When they're in a tough spot, help them out of it instead of passively asking "do you need help?".
