    A top good-paying company in the Philippines so far. Christmas bonuses are the highlights during the end of the year together with Christmas gift checks and goods. Everybody loves Christmas when working with San Miguel. Great medical benefits as well plus one sack of rice given to each employee every month!

    Very hard to get promoted to the next level as lot of revalidas to pass and conquer!

    People view SMC as a prestigious company. Perception of SMC employees as great.

    Cons

    Too long to get promoted. Red tape. Robotic. Culture.

    I worked at San Miguel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    San Miguel imparts knowledge about sales and distribution. It gives a lot of interesting learning everyday including self control, decision making, anticipation, planning and implementation, and proper way of communication.

    Cons

    Because of San Miguel's continues growth, I believe they will need to create more people capable of helping the company to even grow bigger.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to properly treat or manage every employee in the company.

    I worked at San Miguel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    During my time with the said Company, not only me is enjoying the benefits of the Company but my family as well. I am talking about the medical benefits.

    Cons

    There is no downside really. I have had the best days of my life with the said Company.

    Advice to Management

    The upper Management should be more receptive to some of the ideas of the lowly employees.

    I worked at San Miguel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. Comprehensive Training Program 2. Human Resource Management is excellent 3. Working Environment is above standard 4. Total Compensation Package 5. Privilege to work with one of the top 10 corporations in the country

    Cons

    1. Promotion for many may be scarce due to the size of company & many people vying for the position. 2. Fear of separation from work because of downsizing. 3. Career advancement of an employee may be unrealized perhaps because of complacency on the part of the employee (to look for a better chance of promotion elsewhere is not an option).

    Advice to Management

    Give a more than a fair chance for promotion of relatively poor but deserving employees.
