Company Culture is very important at Brighthouse Financial. They're always looking to learn and improve employee morale. From company surveys to lunch and learns.

Initially it was a great place to work but after a few months there were clicks and some of the managers made the culture and work environment very difficult.

BHF has grown quite a bit since its start up a few years ago. The culture has become more diverse and inclusive and HR does a great job with listening to its employees. I look forward to going to work every week and hope to grow with the company in the future. Management is not afraid to shake things up, in a good way.
Pros
Great benefits, Casual work attire, on-site cafeteria, Fantastic people, transparent
Cons
Still new so there isn't much room for growth/advancement at this time

The core value is best in cost, so the company is outsourcing everything, pay more for the consulting and pay less for own employees. So consulting companies are conducting the company not the own employees. Leadership is not listening because they also looking for external opportunities.

Save yourself the hassle of having to quit this wretched place. They tell you how great it is and how glad they were selected to start this company when in reality they were forced to transfer or lose their jobs. Every week they are losing good employees because management is unskilled, unethical and unprofessional. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place. You'll thank me later.

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.

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.

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

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.
