    Good Place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsNegative 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 Senior ManagementDoing 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.

    Good compensation package

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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTraining 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.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    High standard financial institution

    Branch Operations Officer (Former Employee)

    ProsThey 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.

    ConsSome 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 Senior ManagementHigher 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.

    Check Out the Company First Before Applying

    Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) Makati City (Philippines)

    ProsThey 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe open to suggestions

    Working with Metrobank is a rewarding but also a truly testing experience that will challenge your wisdom & character,

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros1. Salary & benefits are up to par
    2. Working condition is conducive
    3. Opportunities to hone & develop your skills are great
    4. Recognition & promotion is high but competitive

    Cons1. Current state of affairs in the management of the bank is admittedly very hard as compared to the past management. There is a culture of fear thriving & growing every day in the bank because of new policies, guidelines, procedures, reportorial requirements & even the way these changes are being communicated or imposed upon the people of the organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPractically everybody in the organization sicerely cares for the bank. Yes there's a lot of going and changes to undertake to further the bank's growth but these can be done without sacrificing the morale of its people and the humanity of treating them as important and useful individuals and not like puppets or machines without feelings and emotions. After all, man is still and will always be the best resource in any organization.
