Has anyone gone through the MetLife way yet? What are the normal staff reductions as a result?

MetLife, where leadership hides behind hard working employees, never addressing customers directly, and putting their teams in the position of handling difficult issues, while offering no support. Very often leadership is aware of things that will cause concerns and issues for customers and staff, but they refuse to document the issue or come up with a plan. Instead they wait for the issue to come to a head then put it on their direct reports to fix the issue without any support. Yay, the MetLife Way!
Metlife is the quintessential staffing agency when it comes to the very worst traits of a staffing industry that has exploded since corporations became rabidly obsessed with cutting costs and systematically denying workers decent wages and benefits. Highlights include poverty-level hourly rates for well-qualified employees, live in America with Indian salaries
systematic reduction of US Employees, Lots of contractor from India in the Tampa Campus as of 2019
The people who are anti-virtual are the people who work at MeLife on Madison Avenue in New York. The last time I checked the org chart the newly appointed head (Darla Fichum) of Auto and Home reports to MetLife in New York, not the other way around.
Been through MetLife Way....... feels now like the object is for middle and upper management to create as miserable a working environment as they can, so as to force people to leave and then not replace them (attrition). MetLife Way is the most ridiculous waste of time and resources I have seen in 25 years.
With newly appointed person in charge of Met P&C, who is Anti-VO, virtuals should be very worried.
I think they expect about a 30% savings in work load.
Whether that translates into staff reductions or to re-purposing, or just not filling attrition depends.
