Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – The processing of claims are very efficient during the past admin until the new President eradicated the decentralization which caused so much delay on processing claims.
Cons – This question seems generic. During the past three (3) administrations all appointed Presidents of SSS took time on carefully studying the decentralization process which became very effective, but sad to say Pres. DQ has the quickest analysis eradicating what the former admins did. As a result, SSS receives numerous complaints why it took so long to process claims, etc. etc. SSS appears so funny now like GSIS. Members are becoming annoyed as well as many employees.
Advice to Senior Management – I advise the President to please analyze and think a hundred times before eradicating the decentralization system. SSS previous admins spent a lot to impose the decentralization system to benefit rural and urban members but now SSS is spending a lot on demolition of machines etc. under the present administration. Is he receiving wrong info from the officials around him? Pres. DQ's term is finished already and he would surely leave behind with those unfinished projects which he demolished at the wink of an eye. He failed to consider that SSS members are composed of literate and illiterate (majority) people that is why HI-TECH approach would never be that effective compared with that of banks' clients. He should know his members-profile.

Cons – the company has a slower promotion
– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – The idea of work-life balance, which is hard to be achieved in any government institution and much more in the corporate world, is truly upheld in SSS. The dismissal is seriously at 5pm unless you deemed to stay afterwards. Overload work is seldom, or you may do it only in the office if there really is. Every Friday night is really a 'Friday night,' wherein you will have an opportunity to go out with your mates anywhere in the metropolis. On-the-job trainees (OJTs) are treated the best without even compromising work ethics and competence. There is no any week passed without a lunch or snack treat coming from any of your supervisors or even the younger officials. You will be tasked to do research works such as updating databases of chosen economic indicators and reading reports from various agencies. After 5 - 10 years of working with the company, you will have the opportunity to acclaim a scholarship grant worth more than a million pesos to study Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in the Asian Institute of Management (the only internationally-recognized institution for an MBA degree in the country) or Masters in Public Administration (MPA) in the University of the Philippines' National College of Public Administration and Governance (UP-NCPAG). Company profit sharing policies are also at its best, especially if the pay day are always on the last day of the week. Nice people to work with and there is no sense of 'school-based discrimination' that is endemic in the corporate world. You will meet people who have been graduated from the University of the Philippines (UP), University of Santo Tomas (UST), and others, who are fairly treated in promotions and equality especially if you are in the same position. Majority of bosses came from UST and they already stayed there for like almost three (3) decades. Some of the bosses are also endowed with a high sense of religiosity that is why every Thursday lunchtime, different religious sects are separately gathering to meet-up, pray, and worship. Strict attendance policies, which is beneficial since it will inculcate you a greater sense of discipline unlike on other Philippine government institutions. If you have done a mistake, you will be constructively reprimanded that positively soothes up to your unconscious mind and heart. Planning to work on a government institution, SSS is the place to go.
Cons – You will be paid for an amount of PhP 2, 500.00 for a 200-hour OJT work, which is fine although low compared to multi-national companies (MNCs). Sometimes you need to do administrative tasks such as routing letters to 60 offices around the 12 floors of the whole building, encoding long array of databases from the outlook reports of Asian Development Bank (ADB), World Bank (WB), and International Monetary Fund (IMF), and even photocopying, which is I believe to be somewhat negligible. Workplace politics is truly prevalent, especially if you are the one who doesn't know how to befriend your colleagues and bosses. You will surely to be doomed by hearsays and backstabbing that you will even never know, at least for a lifetime. Therefore, you should be satisfactorily extrovert enough to be able to get along with your colleagues. Although recently renovated, workplace ambiance will somewhat makes you sleepy and bored. The supervision of employees are kinda lenient, which makes some of the employees be able to play computer games if there are no tasks assigned.
Advice to Senior Management – Give greater intellectual work to the trainees in order for the experience to be more bankable wherever they go. Raise trainee allowances.
