Clueless managers who will bully you around. There is no professionalism. It's a very stressful working environment. Not easy to sell their products because competitors are offering better products.

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

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.

Most of the clients withdraw which causes you as the advisor to loose money since you on commission people change they minds every time therefore it is vital to get a reliable worksite without your own transport it is impossible to reach all your appointments

Working at Metropolitan helped me challenge myself in so many way. I was working with clients with different personalities everyday of which some of them were rude so I learnt to approach everyone and treat them fairly always. I learnt to work under pressure because I always had to meet deadlines because it's a sales company and you have to have had a certain number of sales before a certain period of time. Working here helped me to grow in working as an individual and as a team and it also helped in decision making. So overall I would say Metropolitan really did help me a lot.

The vibe and enjoyment i got from interactijg with various clients was awesome. I enjoyed thw challenge tremendously. I had to source clients within a demarcated area of work and make appointments then sit down and do a conplete needs analysis for yhe customer and ascertain what their most important needs are.
