MetLife announces high paying jobs coming to Cary

Posted: Updated:
CARY, N.C. -

Insurance giant MetLife announced around 1,000 jobs are coming to Cary.

A spokesperson for the company made the announcement at the Cary Chamber of Commerce banquet.

MetLife said in March it was moving 2,600 jobs from offices in four Northeast states and California to lower-cost locations in two North Carolina cities, while also getting tax breaks and other incentives that could reach $100 million.

Groundbreaking on the facility, located at a property on Weston Parkway, will be in the coming months.

The spokesperson said the salaries for all of the jobs coming to Cary will be in the six-figure range.

MetLife employs about 23,000 U.S. administrative staffers in about 30 locations, mostly in the Northeast.
