Thread regarding MetLife Inc. layoffs

Even managers are leaving

I know of two who left in as many weeks. I'm guessing they know something we don't, because who'd be crazy enough to leave a job where they do nothing all day but yell at employees and get paid to do it? If you need extra proof that things are going downhill, there you have it.

Many people have reevaluated their lives during the covid cr-p and some have come to realize that sitting in a cube for 10 hours a day.. Communing an hour each way, does nothing for their life balance... Work can be done anywhere.. So many are looking for that... And many are finding it in companies who have embraced that work model.... The older management style of I need to see you in the office is dying or dead.. good riddance
Don't want your culture

Obviously anyone minimizing the attrition doesn’t actually have any real information.

@was a manager - good luck, hope the next place you land is much better, and I agree it probably cant be worse.

For those too lazy to go to that link, here is the most important part from it:

"“Toxic culture is the biggest factor pushing employees out the door during the Great Resignation,” according to an analysis published in the MIT Sloan Management Review. It’s “10 times more important than compensation.”

That is metlife for sure.

I was a manager. Friday was my last day. Got tired of being told no whenever I tried to get my team the right tools to do their jobs well. The first point in this article sums up how I've been feeling

Good luck to all of you out there on your job hunts. I don't know if my next company will be better but they certainly can't be worse.

@1dqg+1eSoCBWt I guess you haven't heard about all the trouble companies are having hiring talent right now. Sure they'll get replaced eventually, but will they be replaced by people that know what they're doing is the real question.

@1jfi+1eSoCBWt A flesh wound is, by its nature, immaterial. Everyone is replaceable. If you think otherwise you must be very early in your career or remarkably naive. So much fabricated drama on this board.

We've lost a lot of managers across the US in the past six months to voluntary attrition. Some should have been laid off years ago but most of the ones leaving are ones with skills we literally can't afford to replace because we can't compete on salary or benefits these days. I don't know how they're going to patch this flesh wound.

Wait, two managers resigned?? Two whole managers at a company with 5,000+ managers? Wow...that’s some powerful evidence you’ve offered up there.

Plenty of jobs out there make Metlife salary and bonus look like a joke. Not worth passing up a good opportunity for the miserable bonus they dangle in front of us.

Why leave just before bonus payout?

Yes, they must know something, and maybe the new company made them whole on their MetLife bonus, too.
