Think they'll address the layoffs last week? We already know they'll pass on RTO since that's "US only".
Lots of new jobs in management this year. In India. Wake up. You’re being outsourced. Do you ever even LOOK at “Careers in Morion”?
Of course they will do everything not to give severance pay and to make people quit on their own. Almost all companies do that. I am interested in your experiences, how did they get you to the breaking point to leave before getting cut and severance... — read more
It amazes me that more people are not leaving Metlife as a result of the cuts that led to us being critically understaffed. The pressure and pace of work imposed on the survivors is so great now that I regret not being targeted by the layoff. The... — read more
Don't be surprised next Monday when you stop getting email replies from people in HR and USB next week. Q3 is nothing compared to the sl------r being planned for Q4. Winning the future!
Is now required learning! Inclusion Begins With Me. Pushing this sh$t = more exclusion Efu----gnough
Let me guess… “not good”.
Is HR next to get cut as I have heard rumors from several people? It wouldn't surprise me at all.

You can't just ask us to trust you, Cynthia. This meeting is going great so far.
He makes $15,434,255 annually. "MetLife, Inc. disclosed its CEO pay was 205 times its median employee's pay for the fiscal year ending in 2020." That's an increase from 190:1 in 2019. But hey, keep telling us how you can't afford raises and AVIP... — read more
In the Lets Talk Live there was a quote from Jennifer Gottlieb "We have so many questions coming in about RTO but this call is global and RTO questions are US based. We will do our best to try and cover all of these in a separate call next... — read more
I’m all for inclusive and diversity. Metlife has made many efforts to do so but at the same time going so far that it’s making some employees feel their is no path for advancement especially if you happen to be white. So many positions are being... — read more
I know some people who are not happy but are staying because they're hoping they might score a severance package. That plan is flawed in several ways, in my opinion. First, severance is not a guarantee. There is no law that says MetLife has to give... — read more
I guess the first survey for vax status failed so they are sending out another one in hopes the wording with coerce employees to divulge their personal medical information. It appears that many do not want to share that detail.
Except I've already heard about 3 who have exceptions, and another who might have an exception. Of course I have not heard of one person below Avp level who was given an exception. TL;DR - F--k you if you are Director or below. Do as I say, not as... — read more
Who are they going to trot out for this next dog and pony show? It feels like a whole lot of effort could have been saved if they had just let managers work it out with their own teams. I wonder how many people have given their notice in the past few... — read more
Anyone heard yet? I had a meeting this morning, these people are id--ts and self serving to say the least. While I now have new requirements to be in the office more often than I used to, and for no good reason at all I'll leave it to them to figure... — read more
People who were laid off in the last round, have you started applying for new jobs yet? If so, how is the market looking in our field? Are there really plenty of jobs available as some are saying or is that an exaggeration? I'm thinking of leaving... — read more
No, the reason is not that employees working from home are slacking off and not doing their jobs, in fact, I have worked more than ever. The reason I don't want to go back to the office and why I will give notice is that I have finally got rid of... — read more
It wouldn't surprise me if we had another round, the way things are going. Seems like they like November for layoffs. Maybe another Thanksgiving present?
So now they are walking this back?
And so, after many years here, they decided they didn’t need me anymore. It didn't surprise me at all, it was to be expected. After they brought me to the point where they couldn’t squeeze me anymore, they gave me a notice. It would be foolish to... — read more
I heard that more than 100 people were affected. Does anyone know which locations? Who is the target? The transparency of this company is terrible. At least they could be a little more transparent, if nothing else. I'm afraid these layoffs will... — read more
I haven't heard of any so I'm hoping they wrapped it up yesterday but you can never be too sure with these things. I'll probably be a nervous wreck for at least another week waiting to see if it's REALLY over. These layoffs are really pushing my... — read more
I was part of a large layoff in GTO today. Good riddance.
You really think they are anonymous?
Any thoughts on the new bonus structure that includes business units? Good? Bad? Ugly? What will be the actual effect?
There is NOT one aspect of this company which is competent. They get EVERYTHING wrong. Try as they may-they still sc--w it up. If they were waitresses they’d get your order wrong. If they were brain surgeons, you’d end up with a labotamy. If they... — read more
A question for those who have been here for a long time: has this company ever been run worse before? I haven’t been here long, but I’m pretty sure it hasn’t. Sometimes I just can’t believe how greedy are those at the top and how much they don’t... — read more
I don't like this whole thing after Q1 results. Does this story about the direct expense ratio that will be pressured mean that all I can expect in the coming period is not a raise but a layoff? That's how I understood it. Are there any predictions... — read more
Michel A. Khalaf -- President and Chief Executive Officer Yeah, I'm not sure. Hi, Suneet, Michel. I'm not sure we provided a guide, but let me just remind of what we said on the outlook, which is that this year's expense ratio will be pressured... — read more
While I agree with some of the posts on this site, as someone who recently left the company after 5+ yrs due to relocation, I have to say MetLife treated me well - I was paid fairly for my work, the work life balance was good, and I enjoyed working... — read more
If you don't want to turn into a brown-noser and spend most of your time kissing your manager's a-s, stay away. I started here a year ago and I just quit after realizing that working hard would net me exactly nothing other than more work added to my... — read more
What terrific news for the RTP region! Sucks to have to pay the toll, but I'm pretty sure the salary increase will cover! Looks like the big hiring push started in June last year and mainly targeted NCSU hardware design engineering grads. MET... — read more
Did anyone want to 🤮reading Cindy Paces post? The company needs to stop allowing the spread of incorrect information. Racism, microagressions and inequalities did cause those deaths. The shareholders should not tolerate toxic messages and opinions... — read more
I came across this site accidentally while looking up how often layoffs occur at Metlife. What I read on Glassdoor is the total opposite of what I am reading here. Could anybody give me an honest assessment, please? I am looking to get into the... — read more
Does anyone find it alarming, when executive leadership makes a statement, they act as though they have the power to speak for every employee? MetLife speaks out for this, or against that..... but they have no idea who all is for or against what, and... — read more
Do you know of people that are quitting? There are way more quits this year than in the past. Key people, too. The pendulum has swung. Soon MetLife is going to be doing everything it can to keep its workforce from leaving. Especially those few... — read more
