I started 6 months ago at Met working in Billing. For the most part I like my role, but using it as a stepping stone towards my larger goal. I think it could pay much more because I'm cross training to help out another team while also having my work... — read more
Dusting off my resume this weekend. Where did you go?
I swear every day in my part of GTO another one bites the dust. Fidelity and Credit Suisse are recruiting hard in RTP right now.
Welcome to Q4 2021. What do you hear? What do you know?
There’s been a lot of commentary from the EG about respecting normal business hours, with scheduling meetings and expecting deliverables… but the CFO has set a town hall meeting for 730am eastern. I’m not sure how having everyone signing on by 715... — read more
LATAM hit now. EMEA Q4.
I'm vaccinated and just looking forward to the anti-vaxxer tears. How about you? I'm honestly hoping this will cause a bunch of middle/senior management to retire.
Just look at our stock, it's been going down consistently in the last week. We also lost in court yesterday, which makes me even happier. Those are the kinds of things that can get the upper management in trouble and even if it could affect me as... — read more
Personally I don't think October is happening. My best guess is Jan 3rd will be announced soon. What's your best guess or why do you think October will stick?
A step in the right direction. Wonder what bonuses will look like this time.
How can the management announce it expects to see record sales this year a day after cutting more people? Talk about being tone-deaf. This creates a really dangerous precedent as well. If they're willing to cut people at a time when business is going... — read more
Can somebody please share the details of their severance package from the latest layoff?
Does anyone know which areas and locations got hit with a layoff? Was it Human Resources? Was Human Resources outsourced?
Our leadership should just leave it at RTO has been postponed. The CDC provides conclusions more often than real-time data, and the company's attempts to interpret the "science" and data are not really helpful. So hey, how about those share... — read more
We don't have enough money to avoid laying people off, we don't have enough money to keep the brain drain from happening, we don't have enough money for proper raises, but we do have money for a share buyback? If you didn't realize before how little... — read more
How's that 1.5% treating you? https://finance.yahoo.com/news/metlife-announces-3-billion-share-201500416.html
Wonder if they were feeling the heat or if they just actually have half a functioning brain cell?
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?
