DAT employee tracking software

Now Metlife has a new time software called DAT that tracks every minute that an employee works. If they are concerned about operating employee expense why don’t they first start at the top and cut the 6 and 7 digit pays a bit along with the high... —  read more

Closed - Henderson, NV

How sad. I lost my job with MetLife Home and Auto when someone decided to close the entire office in Henderson, NV in October, 2017. So many lost their jobs. It’s never easy to deal with such a life changing event

MetLife Millennials

Shame at 200 Park, where there are #millennials who stroll in whenever, socialize all day, leave early and then get promoted. Adding zero value, while hard workers are being let go. Very painful to see this. Management needs to seriously do a better... —  read more

Dont take the 1400 number for granted

MetLife has nowhere near 1400 jobs in Troy / Rensselaer. The 1400 is the total number of jobs (from multiple MetLife locations) that are getting moved to Cary AND Tampa. This was announced to people within MetLife GTO (IT and Operations) back on Nov... —  read more

Lead and engage in the problem solving process

MetLife senior leadership feels that everyone is replaceable. No one should ever feel secure with this company. Transparency is a lie, and the powers that be avoid the truth..... plausible deniability. If they would learn to roll-up their sleeves... —  read more

really hard (if not impossible) to advance

no way to get promoted or change departments to get higher pay even if you know all the systems and procedures required for the job... the recruitment team is looking to fill the spot based on keywords and specific degrees... even if you have a... —  read more

Many things need fixing at MetLife

Sooooo many things wrong with MetLife right now... Working set hours is nice, but open work place not so much. You gotta be very careful how you use your PTO, because it's very limited and it includes both sick days and vacation. The ranking systems... —  read more

Unrealistic goals set by MetLife management

Am I the only one who is sick and tired of them moving the goals higher up and adding these caveats that make sure you fail even when you somehow manage to reach the goal? This is affecting everybody, even the top sales reps. For example, the... —  read more

Business As Usual

According to management it's business, hiring, and travel as usual and very few layoffs will take place in the company. Doesn't make sense what their saying in light of Mr. Kandarian's announcement?

No Major Staffing Changes?

Although it was made clear by the CEO that there would be cuts to headcount, management in some areas seems to be blowing off the message and taking the news very lightly and there have been several recent new hires? What gives?
