MetLife senior leadership feels that everyone is replaceable. No one should ever feel secure with this company. Transparency is a lie, and the powers that be avoid the truth..... plausible deniability. If they would learn to roll-up their sleeves... read more

Layoffs have started in Auto and Home departments. ...... They are to continue for a couple of days.....
Although it was made clear by the CEO that there would be cuts to headcount, management in some areas seems to be blowing off the message and taking the news very lightly and there have been several recent new hires? What gives?
And the ax is still swinging! Smh...
