    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management should look into this as lots of employees are not happy with their growth prespective and looking for Change.

    Pros

    Learning & Development, Opportunity to work with High-level processes

    Cons

    Promotions are a matter of good PR & are released with already a candidate in mind. So, to tackle with Management games is a tough job here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be an equal opportunity employer in real terms

    I worked at MetLife full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Dont 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
