Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Approves of CEO

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.

    Good opportunities to experience the full range of banking

    Cons

    Very slow promotion system - takes an average of 3-5 years to be promoted
    Lower base salary compared with the industry
    Not a lot of young people - young people tend to spend 3-5 years then move on

    Advice to Management

    Hire more young people. Make the promotion system faster and provide more benefits that younger employees would appreciate - such as higher base salaries, more opportunity for movement (remove 12 month residency), and remove officership training program bond

    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)
