Laid back work
Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXJuly 21, 2017
There was no micro management and people trusted your work. They had very good work and personal life balance. Everybody had option to select 2 days work from home.
Pros
very good WFH features
Cons
Company is closed

MetLife pays well, but lacks vision alignment
Director, Global Marketing Technology (Current Employee) –  Cary, NCJuly 20, 2017
MetLife has some work to do with it's leaders to ensure success in the future. Strategy is strong, digitally focused, and pays well.

Senior leadership in IT seem to battle more than collaborate. There is a lack of gaining alignment through working through tough problems together. Instead, inefficiencies due to redundancy exist because everyone does things in silos. Frustrating to employees who are trying to do their day to day jobs because they are battling resistance across silos.
Pros
Compensation is fair, and it's a Global Fortune 50 company which has it's benefits.
Cons
Global nature can cost in work life balance, but good exposure to different cultures.

Fun workplace, not much room for growth
TAM Claims Specialist (Former Employee) –  Bloomfield, CTJuly 19, 2017
A typical work day goes by quick, however it seems through time the company required you to handle more accounts with basic training and the compensation was terrible.

Work/ family life imbalance
Sales Agent (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 18, 2017
Just a place you work make a little to barely survive due to sales matrix being hard almost impossible to meet. Only 30 mins lunch two 15 min breaks. Very stressful for what you make. I can't make ends meet. If you do well the sales matrix for bonus changes to make harder to make bonuses. VERY STRESSFUL PLACE It's hard for a reason ;so MetLife doesn't have to pay you commission. Benefits are good as far as health ins. And 401k.

I was good learning position
Customer Service Consultant (Former Employee) –  Aurora, ILJuly 17, 2017
What I did like was that no one day is the same. I did learn that you have to be a go-getter in the company. The work place was laid back but everyone was willing to show you the job. The hardest part was the not knowing if they were going to hire me permantely

Not room for growth or advancement
Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, MNJuly 17, 2017
Not many opportunities to grow and move within, especially if you are not or cannot relocate. Hard to succeed overall with all of the changes of structure, duties and management. Nothing is transparent and people never feel that their job is secure. For anyone just starting their careers, this would be a good place for experience.

Eligibility Specialist (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 14, 2017
Over all MetLife was a great place to work. I would recommend Metlife to anyone. The people were great to work with, job load was fair, hours were within the norm; occasionally, you might have to put in long hours.

Great Benefits, poor Career Development and Job Security
Sales Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Wayne, PAJuly 13, 2017
MetLife offers competitive salary and excellent benefits, however, the organization is constantly changing in ways that leave employees and internal partners on the back burner, often struggling to adapt to (constantly) new environments. Joe security dwindles as years and upper management move on.

Customer focused - Sales Driven
Service Leader, Small and Mid-Large Clients (Former Employee) –  Aurora, ILJuly 13, 2017
Budget cuts are a focus at MetLife right now which translates to a lot of change and the need to reduce headcount. For those that are left behind, it increases their workload. Vision good - but interim state - while in midst of change - challenging.
Pros
Customer Focused
Cons
Systems are old

CSR (Current Employee) –  Hazel Green, ALJuly 13, 2017
Great company to take phone calls for. I did not actually work for the company. I worked for a virtual call center and MetLife was one of many clients that I answered the phone for.
