i just accepted a FA position at Met. I tried looking at the banks and wire houses but no one seems to be hiring right now in my area. My biggest fear is that even though they are a financial services company, people will only think of insurance first, which in turn, will make my gathering assets a bit more difficult. Can you anyone let me know if my fears are warranted or did i make a good choice in going to them..Thanks

If you joined MetLife Resources, be prepared to make no money.  (That's the division that focuses on the 403b marketplace.)

I love Metlife- Snoopy has some great products. The Guaranteed Income for Life with annual step-up is great for the right people. Metlife also seems to be a little quirky in the management- meaning they don't take themsevles so seriously- Stiff Black Suits-Red ties (you know- if you ever did see an American Funds Wholesaler-they all kind of look alike..) anyway- When client's need an annuity, I always go to Snoopy. The name alone is so recognizable that clients' feel comfortable right away.


So, I say congrats! I think you should do well.

bjack...how many ways can you figure out to ask the same question? Tired of the same post three times. You took the job, now look forward.
