If working for the insurance company like metropolitan you need to be a go getter , always be on the field for clients. Must be self motivated, work as a team.
Pros
They have good benefits for their employees
Cons
Competition is too high, as there are other companies with different good benefits

Productive and motivating working with branch managers but devilish to work with claims dept. When clients need assistance with their contracts. In every appointment with a prospect, you must answer Metropolitan Life's failure to pay out claims when they arise. Office working space was always the problem. No workstations to update your work and the consultants are grouped according to their social life and standards
Pros
Continous workshops to improve your skills.
Cons
No respect shown towards consultants and Head Office instructions and visits by managers

Great working experience, even though some of the office politics got in the way of productivity. Senior management was okay and the overall environment was healthy enough to produce happy workers.

With experience in the insurance sector at Sanlam I found it easier at Metropolitan.The work life balance is excellent but I prefer to work a job with a relative challenge. I also want something with stability regards salary.
