    Pros

    Your team mates and direct manager are great

    Too top heavy and departments are still operating in silos

    "Terrible culture"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at MetLife

      Pros

      Not much is good about working here, at least not in the claims/ operations department where staff are tested like children and expected to document every second of their time

      Cons

      Terrible culture, not inclusive at all. Claims staff treated like robots, expected to action all incoming correspondence same day, regardless of the volume or other factors. No career development or support. No regard for work/life balance. Completely inflexible despite profit themselves on flexible working environment.
