    Pros

    16th months pay, talented bosses. Job security. So sorry, cannot think of more pros to reach the 20 word minimum.

    Cons

    Key Result Areas, where your performance rating is based, does not accurately measure your performance. Tenure has no value. Prefers millenials. BPI does not appreciate long-tenured employees, after equipping them with skills and knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Change your rating system. I will look for another employer that can appreciate my skills, skills that you had provided me at much cost.

    Pros

    You will acquire new skills and knowledge. People in the IS Division are mostly fresh graduates. Expect a young crowd. Managers and Supervisors are very approachable and down to earth.

    Cons

    You work on your own. They don't give much attention to new employees. Sources of information are weak. The company is also very conservative. No fashionable clothes or they will send you a memo. Even their computers are 10years old! Except for managers, they have LCD screens.

    Advice to Management

    Invest on updated pcs and machines. Give trainings and recognize those people who work hard and gets the job done (specially with minimal supervision)

    Pros

    stability, 4 bonuses in a year.

    Cons

    BPI doesn't reward loyalty. Previous employees who left BPI to go to another bank are being hired back at a higher position. I find this totally unfair and demoralizing to the troops. Honestly! It makes me feel like I would be better off transferring to another bank.
    Salary is really lower than what the other banks are offering.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't hire back those who turned their backs on you. Promote from the inside.
