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

    Pros

    Co-workers were great-teamwork, mentoring, & social. Had numerous opportunities to take on special projects & assignments. The work was always interesting. My divisional management team, from senior level & downward, listened to the associates & encouraged open communication.

    Cons

    MetLife is a global corporation, sometimes it was overwhelming & many decisions were made that may have been good for business (profit) but not the associates. It resulted in many layoffs over the years.

    Advice to Management

    Bigger isn’t always better. Some of the “MetLife Family” feeling has been lost.

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

    Pros

    Co-Workers were great to work with. Pay was ok, benefits were good.

    Cons

    Management was sub-standard.
    Systems were old and there were too many of them that didn’t talk to each other. There was a lot of talk about investing in technology to upgrade, but it was all talk.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the micro management, completing sheets with daily tasks listed is a complete waste of time. Get some people in management with fresh ideas, hire from outside the company instead of the same people that don’t belong in management.

    Pros

    They have good pencils and the coffee is pretty good sometimes. Usually best on Friday and Monday. That is about it for now.

    Cons

    The pens aren’t as good as the pencils but the paper is pretty good so that kind of makes up for it.
