I worked for MetLife for over 17 years and recently was informed of my job elimination. I loved the pay and benefits MetLife gave me but the working environment is toxic to your health and mind. You are constantly under the fear of losing your job. I really understand businesses need to make cuts but why hold it over our heads every day we come into the office and also stop eliminating the ones with talent. It seems they axe the ones that can call them out and leave the ones that have no clue how to do the job. The new leadership in NC wants nothing to do with the well-seasoned employees, any suggestions that were made by anyone with a history with the company were always ignored. They made you feel as if you spoke out with suggestions you were being difficult and reluctant to the new change which was not the case. The new management would implement new processed but they really were not “new’ at all, they were processes we used to do but changed that practice because it didn’t work. Then when those processes failed they would later implement the process it replaced now making it their own idea, perfect. The managers are all into self-promotion and looking for their own best interests not yours. Our manager couldn’t even sit down with us to talk to us about the layoff she had someone else do it and played dumb. This company could be great if they would listen to their employees and have a good internal program for promotion or cross training so jobs don’t become stagnant. This is just the tip of the iceberg a lot more going on here then I can say.
Thanks for this excellent post @WdmBKp1-vpnu . I also felt the toxic effects of constant fear and uninterested, clueless managers on my skin.
