So now they are walking this back?
Topics regarding layoffs at MetLife Inc.
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
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
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 was part of a large layoff in GTO today. Good riddance.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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 happens to the employees that follow the acquisition? How does Farmers treat them and do they keep them? Also, benefits and retirement from Farmers, any idea of what they offer?
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
These MetLife Auto & Home Managers and Sups need pink slips. None of them know what they are doing, none of them seek advanced designations and they barely know anything about actual p&c insurance. ML could be great under Farmers but these people... — read more
What a f—ing waste of time that is. Anyone who needs to be trained on that sh– is an absolute mo–n and lacks the skills to be an entry level employee at a mom and pop convenience store. Met is doomed to fail if this was supposed to be some... — read more
I've enjoyed my time at MetLife for the most part but lately it's been a bit too much about wrong people being promoted while the best people are being showing the door. I decided not to stick around and wait for my turn. Finding a new job was much... — read more
When will we get more details about March layoffs?
It seems to me they announced they have lots of cash on hand but the message I received started with “due to Covid....” then received the news about a small raise and the lowest AVIP in 11 years for me....2020 was a year of working longer hours and... — read more
Raises capped at 1.5%. None for above grade 13 (US).
It is all propaganda. S—ing employees in to believe they care. They only care how they look to shareholders. The constant request for our opinions is pathetic. Y’all went to fancy colleges, Wharton, Harvard, University of Michigan...and are paid... — read more
Mark your calendar. Heard from two different sources.
How likely is that there will be MetLife Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
I made the decision to leave almost two years ago and I have no regrets. This company is nothing but a joke and I was so tired of the BS politics and backstabbing. Get out before it sinks like the Titanic because this company is going downhill. Any... — read more
Have you heard anything about potential MetLife Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
Everyone working for this company should have a backup plan. Companies in the industry are having layoffs and ours is no different. So why not be prepared? We all know the job market is not doing great with hundreds ( if not thousands ) of people... — read more
Could they have chosen a worse time to do this to us? A few weeks ahead of Christmas. They really couldn't have waited until January? Given people a chance to properly enjoy the holidays, especially considering the year we've had? In addition to... — read more
Any more lay offs coming this month or January?
The reduction of middle senior management begins today . Good luck.
I know they are only “Rumors” and even doing my own reading of insiderP&C , there doesn’t appear to be anything set in stone. I’m just left to wonder, if rumors are true would there be another major layoff before or after the acquisition? Do I at... — read more
Work…worry…wait Work…worry…wait Just rip off the bandage and get it over with. Give us some peace of mind so that we can concentrate on our performance. This whole waiting game is just another way of instilling fear into us. When we hear of... — read more
Has anyone heard about layoffs? In the LTL it was said “I don’t have anything else to say on this subject, but if I do have anymore information you will know” We just spent millions on a new system, but knowing the industry, this system is very... — read more
Anyone gain any insights into what the executes are thinking from the Nov 9 "Let's Talk"?
Has there been any talk?
Are they inevitable for claims? Feels like volume is down I’m some areas ? Personally, I think it’s due to staffing module. It feels like every few months an area is affected, but it’s been a while for claims ? Thoughts?
I hate how we all know the layoffs are coming but we have to guess everything from when they'll happen to how many will be affected. Why keep us guessing?
