    MetLife is a very UScentric organisation.

    Advice to Management

    If you are a non US based employee and enjoy being in control or hope to be in control of budgets etc... look elsewhere. If you are someone who has no issue capitulating on anything meaningful in you career then MetLife is definitely for you. You will be rewarded for your capitulation.
