    I worked at MetLife full-time

    Pros

    Nice campus. Modest benefits package

    Cons

    Cost cutting pressures. Non-competitive salaries. Loss of legacy knowledge of applications, systems, and processes with massive layoffs in the northeastern US. Unequal application of company policies (e.g., telecommuting, training availability, etc.) throughout organization.

    Advice to Management

    Show respect for employees and listen to those with experience who you hire for their expertise. Increase revenues to reduce pressures on continuous cost cutting.

    I worked at MetLife full-time

    Pros

    Able to work from home if necessary, good benefits and PTO, reasonable training, room for lateral moves

    Cons

    Overworked, employees are asked to meet impossible goals, they don't hire enough employees, they drag claims out for months and years that should be closed in days or weeks, to tremendous financial detriment, no room for true advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people, decrease pendings, stop dragging stupid claims out- let people settle for a couple hundred so they go away, and so pendings decrease.
