Metlife is a good company to work for with great benefits and salary. My day working at Metlife dealing with metlife agents and brokers. Management was good always available ( open door policy).The most enjoyable part of job was my co-workers. The hardest part of job was telling agents and brokers their client ws declined for coveasge.
This company is a great place for career development and growth. The company has gone through a few re-organizations in the past couple of years that brought a bit of unbalance in the stability of positions but overall this is a great place to work for.
Bank Loan Analyst (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – March 16, 2018
I do not know one person that honestly liked working there. Everyone on my team, who were great people, were searching for other places to work. My boss was under a lot of stress and he placed that on us. The CEO cut roughly 1$ billion worth of employee benefits, wages, etc and outsourced to contractors because the company is facing financial difficulties. Not a good place to work.
I would have love to work for Metlife until retirement

Manager, Asia Actuarial IT (Current Employee) – Wilmington, DE – March 14, 2018
MetLife does a great job rewarding and honoring their people for a job well done, which is very nice. My Team and I have recieved quarteraly awards for the past several years as well as the annual awards from our CIO. With that said, promotions are few and far inbetween and job relocations are in process for those located in the north east .
Another perk: I am able to work from home many days due to the early morning and late evening meetings several days a week.
Eventhough the days are long the people are great. For many/most of the departments that I have seen, the company is a great place to work.
People, Sr. Officers promote employee/peer recognition, new IT Campus is beautiful
IT Jobs relocating, lack of promotions and visability
Senior Customer Service Representative II (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – March 12, 2018
MetLife is a great place to work with caring, competent Managers and plenty of opportunities to contribute to the work environment. My Managers are very good at rewarding their associates for hard work.
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – Southfield, MI – March 12, 2018
I would have loved to be employed with them full time but it was only temporary to fill in during Christmas holiday season. There was disconnection and even separation in seating to remind temporary employees that they were not entitled to certain privileges allotted and allowed for permanent full time employees. Everyone was helpful in assisting the temporary employees.
I loved working at Metlife, very professional. Management was awesome. Great benefits. Salary based. Like other jobs they do not make you seem like your in prison, or micro managed. I loved working for them, It was the best job I had.
PCS Agent (Current Employee) – Tennessee – March 9, 2018
This is a great role for a go getter who is well resourced in their community. The opportunity to earn a very good living is readily available to me and my agency. I would recommend MetLife to any associate or principal agent looking to make a change.
Global IT Org (Current Employee) – Cary, NC – March 6, 2018
Metlife is undergoing a human resource change and with change comes resistance. There are the old guards, experienced and comfortable in their old ways and mostly detesting the new wave.
And then there is in an influx of Generation X and Millennials ever hungry to take on the world in different ways. Workplace culture is grim most of the time with pockets of life and management is not that engaged with the floor shop.
On a scale of 1-10, it's 6 because Metlife has an above average salary scale in this region and a good benefits package.
Flexible working hours, Nice facilities for employee wellness
detached management, low level of inclusion at upper management
