    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at MetLife full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    401k, PTO, Annual bonus,

    Cons

    glass ceiling, favoritism, lies from management regarding promotions to unworthy candidates, poor communication with upper management. Work overload. No work/life balance. Focus on metrics with disregard for employee happiness. Forced daily overtime due to work load. forced nights and weekends. poor communication between departments. Poor opportunity for advancement as they will collude with selected employees resign so they may be immediately re-hired as "outside hires." It's simply smoke, mirrors, and lies at every turn.

    I worked at MetLife full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance and benefits among the best. However, their 401K match could be better (higher than 4%).

    Cons

    While continually working to implement business and technical improvements, the constant, ever-changing work environment and processes lend to inconsistent and confusing management styles and direction.
