2nd wave arrived as predicted above and a number of staff from Disability have been told their positions will now be located in North Carolina. They are not allowed to work remotely and were told they were chosen because they were deficient though that was never communicated to them in their quarterly reviews or their 1:1's with their managers. It appeared the managers were equally surprised and had very little notification or prep as well. Reports indicate the majority of the folks in the room were older and were encouraged to outreach the retirement center for information. Many in that room, after years of service and loyalty to ML find themselves in the dead zone and fear they are too young for retirement and too old to be employable. They have the option of applying for their position, relocating at their own expense and if chosen would have to take a substantial pay cut if approved. I'm afraid since Snoopy got his pink slip ML's culture has become less than ideal. Very sad it once was a great place to work. After going through Lean Management renamed MetLife Way everyone is regimented to record every call, every movement, every piece of work for how many minutes and in short it has become a factory (See someone's posting on the DAT tool). So to all the higher degreed professionals in NC if you have had regrets that you missed your opportunity to work in a factory due to chasing educational pursuits regret no more. Apply within, fulfill that dream and be the drone you always wanted to be.¸
