Thread regarding MetLife Inc. layoffs

Say NO to RTO!

Prepare tour management now. Tell them you are not returning in March or ever. Working from home is the new norm and expected work environment for talented employees everywhere. If they want to retain talent then working from home permanently needs to be offered to all positions that have been home over the last 2 years. Tell them!

All of wall street has mandated
MetLife has federal contracts
So what will MetLife do for the safety of their employees?
Mandate or not

What a concept

"Over time, it became increasingly clear that our employees were happiest and did their best work when they had the flexibility to determine where and when they work best," Owyoung said in an email to CNN Business.

I think it's a coin toss at this point. Guess we'll find out next week.

I for one look forward to returning to the office where I can sit and stare at a screen working alone doing the jobs of 3 other fired co-workers, and having video conference calls with people not in my office. Complete waste of time and energy commuting. But I know, its because culture.

Also, I really look forward to these video conference calls going forward once RTO is triggered. Wonder how many of our leadership team will still be on video obviously from home, or who will suddenly not be turning on cameras.

At least I have been able to master the art of doing the minimal viable work product while searching for a new job.

An offhand comment was made in one of my meetings today that the EG is having a crisis of confidence in the current RTO plan. I'm okay with them being anxious about it.

If met does not embrace full time work from anywhere, they are going to lose top talent. In fact they are already losing talent as their competition have already or are planning to move in that direction.

But guys, think of all the spontaneous collaboration that will occur around the ping pong table.

Maybe if you're good enough Jon McCallion will give you an "attaboy" on the next ltl.

Yup, being invested so heavily in real estate is a deal breaker for metlife offering fully remote work.

Given there is a huge block of capital stashed away in commercial real estate, good luck. For MET to admit with action that the office isn't a requirement would undermine MIMs performance and we can't have that.

I'm not sure that even permanent work from home will retain me past March.
