    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.

    Since the co. is an institution already, a good way to start a job but not for at least a year or two.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Makati, Rizal (Philippines)

    Proswarm culture, stepping stone for a career in banking/finance.

    Cons-A very poor career growth, not for a long term occupation.
    -employer has lack of focus on extensive training. Why is it needs to be 10-20yrs as r&f to go to the management level? wherein they are capable of.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe an overall good leader. and generous enough to give the employees what they deserve.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    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.

    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
