    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at MetLife full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    MetLife has good benefits and good pay

    Cons

    Not a professional atmosphere, low moral, lots of negativity and cursing in the office, leaders have never been in leadership training or development because it's not available to them, there is not much training unless you get lucky to get to go through the entire 6 week program but if a sudden project comes up they will pull you out of training early and "throw you to the wolves" and expect you to be just as good as those who went through complete training.

    Advice to Management

    Add more training that is mandatory to complete and also leadership development program, be more encouraging instead of discouraging to employees, and when senior management or CEO comes, introduce them to teams.

    Pros

    great place to work for white collar criminals

    Cons

    If you are a Compliance Officer or have worked in the capacity of an auditor, accountant or served in any role that involves having Ethics, this is NOT the place for you. They turn a blind eye towards rules and regulations including upper level management.

    Advice to Management

    please report yourself to the nearest police station for fraud, including you guys sitting in Atlanta

    Pros

    It's a job but don't expect much else

    Cons

    Where do I start! Managers do not care about the employees unless you are a butt kisser. They are not as diverse as they pretend to be and for those minorities that do come on board, they don't stay very long. They treat employees like children. Their systems are outdated. They are not innovative at all. Not open to new and better ways of doing things even when the VP recognizes outstanding performance and skills. In fact, it's frowned upon because they did not think about it first. Many managers are retirement age but hold on to those jobs for power and to have a life and are set in the old ways of doing things which is very unproductive. You will work long hours because the network is slow and many of the computers are old and freeze a lot.

    There are a lot of meetings also that take u away from your claims.

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff
    Be open to new ideas
    Stop showing favoritism
    Treat adults like adults.
