A very equal opportunity and positive environment.
This is a company that does not invest in their employees, technology advancement, or training. I would not recommend this to anyone who is looking for a growth opportunity or fair treatment of employees who excel in their role.
Great place to work depending on the department you may be the only woman on your team
Fortune 500 company that cares for their employees!
MetLife has definitely done its best to keep up with the modern trends of being an all around employer. However the breakdown in communication is very present and it is a struggle at times to keep up with the constant change that comes with communication breakdown.
The company is unorganized and unsympathetic to family emergencies or illness. Training was ineffective, leaving us to figure out our jobs after we were on the phones. Policies and procedures are inconsistent and other departments are unresponsive.
I was the only woman in my group of co-workers. I was often overlooked for things like going to conferences and had very few training trips while other had more opportunities. When I would state an opinion with a customer the customer would often look to my male counter parts for confirmation of what I was suggesting when it came to IT equipment and how to set it up, which was my job. I also feel that I was laid off due to my illness. It caused me to miss a total of almost nine months within a three year period. Of course, there was no way to prove this with the exception of my having surgery 5 days after my final work day. Had I not been laid off, at perfect timing to the company, they would have been forced into paying for long term disability as doctors have not allowed me to return to work since. It took three years of almost poverty before my Social Security Disability kicked in.
Very flexible, but salary is low and too much emphasis on production.
Company benefits are great but most managers are terrible and don't have a clue. Everyone is trying to save a buck and themselves, leaving little left to fund new programs or innovation. Too much change during time of transformation and lack of job security. Lots of jobs in NY Metro moving to lower cost cities leaving little room for mobility.
Men get promoted more often than females and get paid more. When men voice any concerns they are praised and listened to. When women do they are seen as a bitch and receive negative backlash from other female employees and men will either talk over you or just plain not listen.
Work at home options are plentiful once you are established, though may begin at only 1-2 days/week. Avoid if you are looking for innovative, dynamic place to work but it's a steady paycheck at a large corporate entity.
Salary was below market rate and there was not upward mobility within my department because of how the hierarchy was structured. That aside, MetLife was a wonderful place to work. Outstanding maternity leave, flexible schedule and work - life balance.
Rude, competive to the point of uncomfortable and unsuccessful
Auto and Home is very very male oriented. Males are hired and promoted over females. Diversity and work life balance are great catch phrases but are unseen in real life.
