    Former Employee - IT Manager in Somerset, NJ (US)

    I worked at MetLife full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A company that you can be proud to work for.
    Decent pay and benefits.
    Incredible work/life balance (depending on the organization)
    Pockets of excellence and some really cutting-edge architecture, technology and behaviors
    Some of the best people that I've ever had the pleasure of working with
    Lots of opportunity to contribute (depending on your manager)

    Cons

    Small pockets of political backstabbing and "culture of blame" groups.
    Pockets of outdated technology and behaviors.
    No accountability or 360-degree feedback for managers. Luckily, most are good, but there's no mechanism for calling out the ones destroying morale.
    Extremely poor oversight of the transition of IT Staff to Raleigh. Many people are being hired and given no support, direction or motivation and it's created a lot of dissent and frustration. Managers should have been moved/hired first like they did on the business side.
    Generous separation packages encouraged people who *could* find jobs to take the money and run rather than relocate or look for internal reassignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on developing/moving/building leadership in Raleigh to mitigate the damage to morale that's already occured/occuring.
    Implement bottom-up feedback and reviews to identify the managers that are undermining your vision.
    Put skills inventories back in place to identify the talent that you have rather than continually going outside to consultants or hiring to plug gaps that don't actually exist.
    Leverage the breadth of experience that your people bring to the table instead of being narrowly focused on HR-defined job functions.
    Shift more responsibility/accountability to managers and employees and stop consolidating all of the decision-making at the top. (eg: operating budgets, expenses, bonuses, salary treatment, etc.) If the managers can't handle it, train them or replace them. Fund services appropriately and let the managers figure out how to deliver.
    Consider incentivizing employees to stay rather than paying them to leave.

    5 out of the 7 managers that I had there were among the best that I ever had. If it hadn't been for the package, I would have jumped at the opportunity to join another team within the company. While I could (and did) find a higher level position and salary, there's a lot to be said for being part of MetLife.

    If you're a current employee and frustrated, just know that it's not the whole company. Talk to other teams and look for other opportunities. There's a reason why some people stay with the company for their entire career and it's not apathy.
