    Pros

    The training within can be considered world class despite it being a National bank. The caliber of hires and those home grown are mostly excellent. There is an aura of having to deliver excellence in all that is done - a BPI and Ayala trait (I assume). Very principled and impeccable values instilled in employees.

    Cons

    Slow is some promotions, including pay raises which results to talented people getting pirated. It almost becomes a training ground for young aspirants. Pay scale of seniors are thought to be too high vs. all juniors.
    Is very conservative and deliberate as a manner of working, and not for the entrepreneurial spirit nor high risk takers.

    Advice to Management

    Too many new hires at very senior levels that may not be delivering the needed incremental business. Not a deep enough bench that the middle managers get poached too easily.

    Pros

    The professional culture is good. Changes were made by the current executives, resulted to a more relaxed environment. Good pay and benefits if you are an officer. They also offer stock purchase.

    Cons

    Too traditional and seniority still exists. The process to request supplies are so slow. Top management are open to listen but does not implement.
