Low Morale and Draining Culture
N/A (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCNovember 14, 2018
Brighthouse Financial is the most politically charged organization. As a new company the focus is solely on successful technology transition from MetLife without consideration to culture, employee impact and morale. Employee morale is low and Executives ignore the obvious impact to the long term sustainability of their employees or organization. There is no clear defined strategy (financial, technology or operational) with separation from MetLife, which leaves employees frustrated and confused as demands are high and skills or knowledge transfer is lacking. Brighthouse has duplication of roles often with multiple consultants hired to do the same task as a full-time employee, which often leads to confusion and resentment. The organization can benefit from a step back to determine a strategic path forward including how they treat employees who are not coveted by the C-Suite MetLife circle.

Director, Wholesaler Enablement (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCNovember 4, 2018
Fun place to work, but I have some worry that they have more employees than they need to do the job at hand. They will sort it out, but I think it's a good time to look into my options.

The desks can raise, according you to stand while you work. This helps in staying healthy. Very big windows that allow a lot of natural light in, making a pleasant work experience.

Management change constantly
Director (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 13, 2018
A typical work day is not challenging because management has no clue as to the direction of the company.It is typical to have had a different leader for your organization every 6 months, then the direction changes again. Employees feel lost with no sense of direction from the leadership team.
Pros
Convenient location and parking
Cons
Lack of leadership

Senior HR Operations Consultant (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMay 13, 2018
Brighthouse is an interesting place to work. It definitely is in a period of transformation, which may work better for some than others. Over time they will navigate out of the Met culture and find their own.

Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCFebruary 22, 2018
The biggest selling point for Brighthouse is the management team. They are open and honest with the employees and do a great job informing employees on what's going on within the company. The downside is that their pay just isn't as competitive as some other places.

Great company to work for!
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Johnstown, PA and worked remotelyFebruary 7, 2018
I started out with Metlife and was moved to the new company Brighthouse Financial. This is a great company to work for. They encourage one to further their education through LOMA certifications. I appreciated the positive feedback from Brighthouse on how to be a better Customer Service Rep. My supervisor gave us opportunities to ask questions and voice concerns. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking to different people all the time.
Pros
Benefits, bonuses, great PTO

Pros & Cons
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJanuary 4, 2018
Brighthouse is not a bad place to work depending on who you are required to report to. It is very "who you know" in nature they will dictate how far you can go within the company. It definitely lacks in diversity as only about 8% is minority (African American)
Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
Poor management, no room for advancement unless your associated with a higher up

Brighthouse Financial established by MetLife
Senior Internal Wholesaler (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCDecember 11, 2017
The company has a solid foundation. Strong balance sheet. Although newer to the financial world it was established by MetLife a well known provider of retirement solutions in the industry.

Brighthouse is a fast paced , competitive environment where you will always be learning and has potential for advancement but is a bit difficult proving yourself for advancement opportunities.

Overall a great place to get industry knowledge and increase your personal skill set including territory management, sales presentations, data mining , and relationship building .
Pros
