    I have been working at MetLife full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great atmopshere
    Awesome training and leadership
    Huge selection of financial products
    Freedom to build your own practice

    Cons

    Over time you end up paying for everything. Your judgement gets clouded because if you don't sell MetLife life insurance or MetLife annuities, you won't get paid. Grid payout is based solely on your selling of MetLife products. As a planner (fiduciary), I shouldn't feel the pressure because of compensation, to recommend certain financial products that our proprietary. I feel like I have to be an annuity salesman to make a living

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't penalize reps compensation just because all situations don't require a "MetLife" product.
