    I worked at MetLife full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great easy going office environment built around good people. Dominic Grinstead is one of the best Managing Directors I have had the pleasure to work for,he always rewards his staff kindly. All the field based staff were a joy to work alongside. You are able to get your ideas and opinions across and you will be listened to.

    Cons

    Only left due to the team being made redundant or would of built a career here. The salary could of been higher with a higher bonus and more defined bonus structure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and continue to help and build from the inside as you currently do.
