    Pros

    Metlife was known for taking care of its employees in the past which has inspired tremendous loyalty among its employees. Work-life balance is good.

    Cons

    Increased focus on outsourcing and bottomline has decreased moral significantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refocus the company on its employees. Reward and promote employees who have a track record of delivering results.

    I have been working at MetLife

    Pros

    It is a great place to work if you know how to "play the game". You have to be willing to step out of your comfort zone and show how valuable you are to the organization and in return you will achieve financial rewards.

    Cons

    It is extremely political. You can be the hardest worker in the building, but if you do not get the "nod" from the management team you will not see promotions or raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate employees talent and encourage career growth. Help employees find the part of the business where they can be the biggest asset and enjoy the job they are doing.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO
