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

    Pros

    Friendly work life balance programs available but are based on department/manager discretion.

    Cons

    Lots of jobs moving to NC so less opportunities for advancement. Senior Leadership (CEO) is more wall street motivated and cares little for employees. Going through another round of budget cuts due to his strategic direction.
