"Talent Acquisition Leader is anything but demonstrative and totally non-inclusive. And recruiting should be the poster child for work/life balance policies. Yet, this is a department who's leadership is focused on the top of the organization, has an egregious energy and doesnt' seem to care about her employees."

"MetLife has a robust D&I function with a latino woman leading the function. In the past 3 or 4 years, several initiatives, which are now mainstays, have been implemented. These initiatives include a global woman's forum for AVP level females (this has become a digitally distributed forum in which all employees have access), unconsious bias training. Additionally, MetLife requires diversity slated for each open job and works with third-party organizations to support ethnic minority hiring and female hiring at the director and above level. MetLife also has a family of Diversity Business Resourece Networks (DBRN's) including Women in Finance, GLAM (LGBT), iRISE (millenials), Vets and so on. So, opportunity exists, but this is still a large matrixed organization and no unlike many large corporations, navigating and finding your way around is tough."

"There seems to be a lot of flexibility the higher you get, but for mid-level it may exist, but it's very much frowned upon within the culture. As in, management will continuously voice how they don't like work from home arrangements, etc."

"Paid parental leave only kicks in if you've been with the company for 1 year (this is more than for tuition reimbursement). For men, they have 6 months after the birth to take the parental leave (so they can wait until they are eligible/with the company for a year), for women it must be immediately following STD."

"Work at home options are plentiful, but unless you are near. Large office hub, you will be overlooked for advancement and undertrained to do your job. You will have to figure everything out on your own, and the white guys will get promoted to the AVP and above positions, even if they represent 5% of the team."

"I've worked here for several years and there are a lot of women working here, but mostly in the lower/middle manager levels. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues. Maternity leave was recently upped from 2 weeks to 12 weeks, and many women take longer 'unpaid' leave. However, I think women suffer career setbacks for being out on leave. I think the culture is changing positively, and it helps that there are a few supportive women finally reaching higher ranks."

"I've worked here for a year and women seem to be getting more and more opportunities but they also seem to take a long time to get there. There are definitely many more men executives in the company, but over the past year I have seen more women advance. It really depends on your manager if you want to grow and advance in your career here. I have a great boss who seems to help, but he may not always get executive backing."
