    I worked at MetLife full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Massive brand recognition and company has been around a long time.

    Cons

    Brand gone in acquisition efforts now named Brighthouse financial, not sure who's bright idea that was but customers sure are not happy about it neither are long term clients.

    Advice to Management

    They let too many people go while the work tripled and had new people start that have no background in processing times effeciently and taking care of the customers first. It's a complete cluster!
