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

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Quite stable. Stong ambition to grow Investments business which means lots of career and learning opportunities. Strong corporate focus on innovation these days. Dynamic new CEO running the company.

    Cons

    Huge Insurance company, so some things can invariably be a bit slower than they would be in a smaller company.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at MetLife

    Pros

    None whatsoever. This company is going nowhere fast

    Cons

    Company values are spouted but not followed, loads of backbiting, no team spirit, expected to work long hours for no reward, no work life balance, no support, terrible exec team. This company in the UK thinks it is better than it is, it is so disorganised with a terrible exec team that act like children and have little or no management experience at this level. Bad things are round the corner for this company
