@my understanding.... it has never been MetLife or any other company I have ever worked for that matters style to hand out some list of folks who have been laid off, probably because of peoples privacy and the fact that it would be more reprehensible to parade those people's misfortune around, than to just let people find out over time. just my opinion, sincerely, one of the misfortunates.

It's my understanding that this board is now being monitored by the executive group.

If you're in the eg and reading this:

The communication around these layoffs s—ed. It's reprehensible that we find out we've lost coworkers to satisfy an expense ratio only after having our emails to them bounce back. Can you imagine how demoralizing that is?

For everyone else posting on here, beware of what details you include when posting.

I was told they wanted to give at least 30 days notice, so that's why they announced on Dec 1. They also said no more this year.

So I guess we're safe until at least the end of January.

If you’re in claims an email was sent by Christin White this afternoon. Not sure how the other gto leads communicated it. Sounds like you’re in the clear. Unfortunately the communication rollout wasn’t great. I heard my boss was impacted from my peers yesterday. It was 24 hours before a leader shared the news with our team

So many of us have heard anything about layoffs anywhere? How can so many be happening but nobody can say who, what, where?

Are they planning to do more lay offs of lower level employees in addition to this? Or just some re-orgs?
