I worked at Bank of the Philippine Islands

Pros

You will acquire new skills and knowledge. People in the IS Division are mostly fresh graduates. Expect a young crowd. Managers and Supervisors are very approachable and down to earth.

Cons

You work on your own. They don't give much attention to new employees. Sources of information are weak. The company is also very conservative. No fashionable clothes or they will send you a memo. Even their computers are 10years old! Except for managers, they have LCD screens.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest on updated pcs and machines. Give trainings and recognize those people who work hard and gets the job done (specially with minimal supervision)

    I have been working at Bank of the Philippine Islands full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid management training program and specialist programs for employees.

    Cons

    Bloated organization with lots of mid-tier officers. Salary is on the low side and promotion can be extremely slow. High employee turnover can also be demoralizing with most cited reason for leaving is the absence of succession planning and career mentoring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of non-performing top level officers quickly and promote internally rather than getting expensive replacements that turnout as duds.
