Latest "news" n the rumor mill is Business folks in NJ are being "allowed" to interview for their jobs - they have held for years - but in Tampa now.....Geez....this s--ks!

Across-the-board layoffs for MetLife IT in 2016
What is the likelihood of MetLife layoffs in New York in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
Layoffs started last Thursday the 12th and those laid off are out at the end of November. Nice right before the Holidays.
Across-the-board IT layoffs to be announced sometime in March 2016 (US, 10% cut, ~300 to 350). Not sure when the layoffs will actually begin to occur; presumably by Q3 2016, into Q4 and maybe into Q1 2017.
A undisclosed amount of employees have been informed their jobs have been contracted off to CSC, the employees were given offers from CSC.
Kandarian said he wants to save a billion over a year or two. OK, 10% or so cut in spending. Guess what that means for MetLife employees and families - LAYOFFS. Not sure if this is gonna be linear (e.g., 10% spending = 10% payroll job cut) but it's... — read more
The IT layoffs announcement that was to supposed to happen in March 2016 was cancelled (obviously). MetLife announced on Feb 29 that it will be selling their Premier Client Group to Mass Mutual and spinning off and/or selling its remaining retail... — read more
I will say, out of all the gin-joints I've worked and all the hideous software packages I have dealt, MetLife's is one of the absolute worse! The word on the streets is that MetLife's "claim" to fame is seriously incompetent upper management... — read more
They already got rid of a good chunk of Met by selling us to MassMutual. Their "so much better" technology is actually worse than Met's when I started almost 12 years ago, not to mention they still us a system from like 20 years ago to key some of... — read more
Does anyone know what groups and how much Tampa will be affected by layoffs

MLAH management scheduled a conference call for Sept. 7th, to discuss "updates" in our division. Has anybody heard anything about any layoffs?
Marrty Lippert (CTO) said 68% of the 1 Billion dollar in cuts are coming from GTO. This was the answer he gave when asked where the cuts were coming from.
It looks like it's all over the news now - about 80 people will be let go - more job cuts will certainly come and there will be cuts in 2017 as well... That's my opinion, I hope things improve, but not sure about that.
And the ax is still swinging! Smh...
MetLife Offers Staff Buyouts in Japan http://finance.yahoo.com/news/metlife-offers-staff-buyouts-japan-201041149.html — read more
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?
Look like the axe is swinging again on the Mass/Met Broker Dealer side.
Layoffs have started in Auto and Home departments. ...... They are to continue for a couple of days.....
Sorry buddy... Hope the severance helps...
Employee hiring freeze (no open positions to be filled) and consulting hiring freeze (no new consulting engagements) through at least the rest of 2016. Also, severely restricted travel expenditures for at least the rest of 2016.
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?
Will the open enrollment costs be higher this year due to all the cost cutting and the anticipated Obamacare increases?
Please post estimates or facts as it relates to Metlfe 2016 layoffs
Has anyone heard that some in Johnstown, PA are visiting Charlotte in preparation for transfer of work and relocation? The Johnstown office has been open 40 years and there are always rumors it will close.
