Business Consultant II (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – September 22, 2017
I enjoy working for MetLife, however I believe it could be better. It's not horrible, but it's not great. It's a balance between the two. The one thing I enjoy is that in my department, there is work-life-balance, peak season that can be very stressful, great pto and paid holiday, an annual bonus (that could potentially go away), but the pay may not always be that great; but it's not the lowest either. If your in the right department, have great management, you will reap the benefits of all things. Overall, it's a job! I have better and I've had worse.
Business Initiatives Analyst, Shareholder Services (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 21, 2017
Recently I have been working with the IT and Development areas on automating reconciliation processes related to common stock and dividend reconciliation currently being done on Excel. Also monitor service providers to ensure accurate information is provided to callers regarding stock accounts held at our transfer agent. Respond to Department of Insurance complaints related to stock accounts. Reconcile shares outstanding and statistical reports for senior level management on a monthly basis.
Too much information is giving at one time and expect to remember right away . Once you have learned the new stuff the next day there are more things to remember . There is no room for advancements and pay is low compared to other jobs .
Long Term Disability Project Reviewer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 20, 2017
The benefits were average, the compensation was average but the work-life balance was better than any company I have ever worked with before. The managers were fair and attempted to provide you with a fair assessment of your work
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – September 19, 2017
Assisted clients via incoming phone line with inquiries related to Variable Annuity and Life insurance products. I learned listening saves time. The workplace was a family-like environment. I have many lasting friendships as a result of my time there. The hardest part of the job was sitting for long periods of time. I enjoyed the team-player attitude of co-workers.
