    I worked at Bank of the Philippine Islands full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Contented with the salaries and benefits. Immediate superiors were dealing fairly with the
    subordinates. However, the area head during my time was tyrant. I could not understand why
    I was an excess employee in the branch and yet they are hiring another employee. Is that fair?

    Cons

    Very insulting on our part as Bank of the Philippine Islands' Digos branch which was closed in
    favor of BPI Family Bank. Added to the insult was that we were interviewed first by their officers
    before one can be absorbed at family bank. Only three slots were available then and because
    of that, I resigned voluntarily in favor of the three who were not willing to be assigned in a far area.
    There's no security of tenure in the bank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Study very well their major decision as they can affect emotionally the employees. Look at what they did, they converted Family Bank to BPI after ten years.That's adding insult to injury.
