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

    Pros

    Metlife has processes to take good care of employees- competitive pay, health insurance, retirement plan, etc.

    Cons

    It is a reall big, compartmentalized company, thus there is a heirarchical chasm between executive leadership and the boots on the ground- few people get to know their senior leadership or feel like they get more than just the scripted insights into what is happening in the company.

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

    Pros

    First day training and I already knew a whole bunch of people. The team I was put on is so helpful, they are always there when a question needs to be answered. My UL and CSS are amazing as well. I couldn't ask for a better team. The best part is that there is no required outfit attire. The first day I was dressed up with nice black pants and a nice shirt but they told us that we can wear whatever we want but no flip flops, sweats, leggings or shirts with graphics.

    Cons

    Honestly there arent many cons. The only thing that I could think of is that the parkinging isnt all that great and one of the many vending machines is always broke haha.

    I have been working at MetLife full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    MetLife is a fabulous company to work for that walks the walk. The department I work in really believes in work-life balance. I believe we are compensated fairly and there is always room to move to different positions.

    Cons

    They took away our HMO option.
