Interviewed last week for a position outside of Met similar to what I'm doing now. Starting pay is $60k more than my Met pay. Don't be afraid to put your resume out there and see what happens.

lol @ people that think this is BS. I left MetLife for a $50k raise and stock options. The only people that are going to be left at the company are ones foolish enough to think they're currently fairly compensated for their work (or you're just coasting along for the severance).
Is taking the shot a requirement?
Make sure to respond to your exit survey. They need to know how bad it really is!
Dismiss this at your own risk. I recently left and was astonished at the salaries being offered in the IT space. Cloud eng/developers are in high demand (i.e. $$$). $60K more doesn't surprise me. Cary is hemorrhaging Principal IT talent for salary, growth opportunity, and WFH flexibility. Met is very below market and there are plenty of good companies with strong cultures.
Oh that some other company would come outbid us for our communications, learning, DEI, and help desk talent. I don't know whatever we would do. Oh, and please don't take our project managers, either!
It’s true. There are companies that pay your worth. Not making it up.
Congratulations! I too have interviewed for a position outside of Met and starting salary, on the low end is $32k more than what I’m making at Met and on the high end $57k. And the high end is where they’d rather pay because they want a happy employee. This excludes bonus.
Met is out of touch with their salaries. The low end salary isn’t even the highest in my job Grade. That’s how out of it they are.
Leaving because of money but also because a position and company to truly respects talent. No need for a MyPath here.
Hard. To. Believe.
