    I have been working at MetLife (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They are very good at taking preminums

    Cons

    They are extremely good at dragging out claims so the insured person either commits suicide or walks away from their entitlements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have picked a fight with over 300 New South Wales Police Officers (Australia) who are determined to expose you for what you are. A complete fraud with blood on your hands.

    I worked at MetLife as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The individuals I met at Metlife were exceptional in terms of kindness and support.
    The work itself was like any company, but 2013-2014 they were making real efforts to improve processes in an organized plan way.

    Cons

    Some people I know advanced slowly or not at all even thought they worked hard. I think it was more a factor of the department and budget rather than a reflection of the indivdual or company. Simply work is competitve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to promote creative idea think tanks like Kaizen.

    Pros

    Salary is very good, benefits are great and training opportunities are always available.

    The very fast paced expansion and amount of change needs to be handled better by providing transparent and timely communication to all affected parties.

    I worked at MetLife full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This company had great culture, values, and leadership. It offered many benefits such as 401K matching, company pension plan, excellent health, medical, and dental insurance plans, as well as generous termination package. Its proximity to my home was also a big plus.

    Cons

    My department lacked advancement opportunity and was seriously understaffed. As in most large companies, it also suffered from politics.
