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

Pros

Great atmopshere
Awesome training and leadership
Huge selection of financial products
Freedom to build your own practice

Cons

Over time you end up paying for everything. Your judgement gets clouded because if you don't sell MetLife life insurance or MetLife annuities, you won't get paid. Grid payout is based solely on your selling of MetLife products. As a planner (fiduciary), I shouldn't feel the pressure because of compensation, to recommend certain financial products that our proprietary. I feel like I have to be an annuity salesman to make a living

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't penalize reps compensation just because all situations don't require a "MetLife" product.

    I worked at MetLife full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    young people on desk, decent pay, not very stressful, i enjoyed my time, plus get to be in sunny california which is never a bad thing! There are two sales desks though

    Cons

    Not much room for upside growth anymore with everything that has happend in economy. They are not really hiring external wholesalers from the desk anymore, I would expect more hybrids to be hired going froward.
