    I have been working at Metropolitan Bank and Trust

    Pros

    Good environment with positive atmosphere. Its great working with loyal customers who believe in that " small town banking feel " !

    Cons

    Negative press has been discouraging recently but there is nothing that can be done about that. The media likes to tell their stories and that has affected everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a great job overall. Good practices exemplified by management in navigating a tough recession for everyone have made everyone feel confident in the way the company is being run.

    Pros

    Good compensation package, pays up to 15 months plus allowance and performance bonus ( not guaranteed )

    Cons

    Be patient to wait for your promotion as it may take forever. Also, forced ranking policy puts too much pressure on some people forcing them to be evil

    Good learning experience at one of the largest banks in the Philippines, but comes with a lot of stress and poor IT

    I have been working at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training is adequate with plenty of classes. Senior management listens to your inputs if they find the time. Generally senior management comes across as a smart bunch of people. People tend to work hard but are still very willing to help.

    Cons

    Middle management is so-so for one of the largest banks in the Philippines. Compensation is low-to-average since their largest cost is manpower cost. Also, promotions are slow. Poor performance in any given year is punished by reducing the chance of promotion in the succeeding two to three years (usually though promotion is completely forgotten). IT systems are antiquated and development projects can be delayed by up to a few months to a few years. Since IT infrastructure is weak, most processes are performed manually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish they had a fairer compensation scheme and better IT in place so that working there is rewarding..

    Former Employee - Branch Operations Officer

    I worked at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They value most on customers and with high quality of service. They offer a very satisfactory salary. A good standard on employee empowerment and self improvement.

    Cons

    Some senior officer on the countryside levels are promoted trough palakasan system but not quite qualified for the position and upon assumption of post they mostly under estimate rank and file especially those that committed some mistakes during their assumption as junior officers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher management should have a comprehensive screening on some officers before they are promoted to senior officers including a survey on rank and file and not just depend on recommendations of other senior officers.

    I worked at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They provide good benefits for officers. Steady income of at least 15 months with a good chance of earning up to 18 months if you are a performer.

    Cons

    A lot of people are demotivated which would somehow affect the people around them thus high attrition across groups and divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
