    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Chennai

    ProsI am working with IT MNC in India & in MetLife Project around year with colleagues

    ConsWorking with Metlife projects is worst experience in my career.
    My all colleagues are frustrated while working with such pathetic client
    Met Life expects 3 year work in 3 months !!!!!
    No work life balance in fact no personal life !!!
    People are mentally harassed to deliver unrealistic goals

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't take such client's projects who literally expects to get things done in unrealistic timeline free of cost !!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good, not many growth opportunities, partiality by Indian GOSC management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Noida

    ProsGood workplace, great training and infrastructure, Fixed weekly offs and monthly L&D trainings which employees can attend to hone their skills

    ConsManagement sucks, unless you have a good rapport with your manager in which case it is easy sailing for you, some of the internal job postings that are rolled out are prefixed with a candiate already in mind, they are rolling out the offer just to give an 'equal' chance to all the employees, think twice before taking problems to the management since there are lots of changes promised but none actually made

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont be partial and give an equal chance to all, specially to people who are hard working and deserve it without any a kissing, when employees speak about their problems do more than just listen, there is a reason why they are saying what they are facing at the workplace, dont just talk about transparency, practice what you preach

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
