Must be nice to work from home. I hope it doesn't mean a pay cut for the added convenience.

It would be nice if they did the same for us in Greenville, SC. where 32 people got layed off on March 6 2008 from Metlife. They decided to open up the second building in India and are outsourcing more of the company to the "full time employees" in India.

What are Metlife's investments or partnerships in India and what services do they provide. Do they only support IT services or do they also do customer support, claims or underwriting from there as well.

MetLife also outsourced it's auto and home customer service to Costa Rica. Now we are waiting for the decision on who will be cut at the end of this month. Every week they send out a notice that they will treat us with dignity and respect..how can they say that when our jobs are being sent over seas. Single parents are on the chopping block to satisfy coorporate greed!

The same is happening in our office in Tampa Florida. At first we began to gradually downsize, Aka cut expenses. Some of our jobs and work was taken over by another office in another state. The customer support positions are being sent to India and now our entire office is being closed. We are being moved into another building nearby but we will be managed by our Charlotte NC office. I am afraid that it is only a matter of time before all of our jobs are absorbed by that office. Now we here that 5000 jobs are being cut across the board. Are we next? Our management team does not have any answers. All I can do is hope for the best

well we now know that none of the job cuts will include overseas. they will all be american jobs lost. MetLife has set aside 50 million for severence packages..are they going to find me a job too? Maybe Rob Hendrickson should go out and try and find work and see just how difficult it is. I bet he sleeps very well at night with his millions while all the AMERICANS he screwed are worrying about how they will feed thier families.

I think most of the jobs are going to be under the life insurance branch... I hope. I hadn't heard that about Tampa.

We lost supervisors, operations, and our resource department in Dayton. and that was Just in the auto and home department. I have no idea what they did with disability. I still have a job for now..but a lot of my friends don't. single parents..people who have been there for years...all gone...it's a shame Metlife values the $$ over human beings. but most companies do...so why should MetLife be any different.

It's really sad that alot of our jobs are going to India. I hope that our jobs come back to the USA. I hope my job come back to Warwick RI. We lost supervisors that had worked there for over 30 years, I truely feel for them and all my former associates. It was one of the sadest day when we all found out we were losing our job. I hope that Rob Hendrickson would bring back our jobs. MetLife was a good place to work for, I enjoyed working there. Our jobs need to came back.
