Thread regarding MetLife Inc. layoffs

Assign work better

Perhaps the CFO can take a long needed look at the individuals in leadership who lack the sophistication to be able to recognize what sort of talent and skills are needed for the work that needs to be done. Currently, work is being assigned to already overworked staff who, if they don’t have the skill set needed for a particular assignment, are forced to figure things out on their own with no support, opening up an avenue for processes to take more than twice the amount of time and the risk of human error. There are also a lot of highly paid staff who have a ton of capacity and are being paid to do work that could easily be done in a more cost effective manner by a TPA. In 12 years with the company all I can do is shake my head.

Really good point by @XLl1kX1-Wsmj.

And what about the last employee survey? Nothing has changed or come of it, then again, nothing good has come of any of the surveys for the last 15 years!

So far haven’t seen the CFO doing much of anything. And the new CEO is talking about focusing on the customers, but how many times are we going to hear that dried up old story. It’s all about the money and the pockets of the already rich. Best advice, run away from Met and don’t ever look back!

Us good mgrs all left. It became too toxic to stay. We taught, mentored, and tried to groom employees but upper Mgmt kept us way in the trenches to even keep that up.

The right thing was frowned upon unless you were there in the in crowd down south.

I watched people take folks off projects to study for training and certifications and fail at their jobs while we slugged through massive projects and work. Then when they got the very parades around like king.

Good luck

Gone are the days when talent go you recognized and promoted. Here are the days where everyone is reduced to tons of manual “busy work” all in the name of “job security” but for who?

Most of the new management I have encountered are too busy worrying about their own success than of it's departments employees. New employees are hired with a BS in anything and talk seems to be key here even if you can't walk. Try putting managers with company knowledge and history back in business and let them run their teams without all the above red tape and countless meetings.

Good point, clean out some of the legacy way of workload distribution and restructure..... that might put things back on track!
