"Leadership is the key factor that needs attention here. Make sure you can adequatelly understand who your leaders will be and their profiles to avoid surprises once you are already in. Internal politics play very strongly and different points of view are not always welcome at highest levels."

"The culture is improving, the company is taking steps to focus on D&I and ensuring all employees are treated fairly, and feel accepted at work. More can be done to ensure that all women, especially women of color, are given opportunities to advance. I would love to see MetLife invest more in women through educational programs, financing and policies that enable them to pursue their goals. "

"There is no possibility for advancement unless you are one of the favored few. I also believe the salary bands are below market and that compensation is not fair."

"Great maternity and paternity leave. Not very flexible on work arrangements. Pay is just below the market."

"To ask questions to ensure you find the right manager to work for and ensure they will be your advocate. For example, are there other women on the team? what are their roles compared to others on the team? when have they been promoted?"
"Lots of flexibility, but very little chance for real advancement unless you are a white male."
"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."
