    I worked at Government Service Insurance System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is good to work at the Government Service Insurance System because it is one of the most stable government agencies in the country.

    Cons

    The downside in working in the Government Service Insurance System is the management that basically made a very drastic turn-around in the release of benefits that the employees religiously receive.

    Advice to Management

    Government Service Insurance System is an agency that gives assistance to all government employees, and they are called members. The members were given an all out financial assistance every now and then. But just a reminder the employees of this agency are also members of the GSIS. Benefits that are regularly given should not be removed from the employees. These benefits are the reinforcements of the employees to serve more effectively.

    I worked at Government Service Insurance System as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was assigned at the Bulacan branch of GSIS. The office place is nice and the employees are friendly. They will really make you feel appreciated after you've helped them with some tasks.

    Cons

    There is no Cons in this organization. But the only problem is with the parking area, because the parking area is not under the management of GSIS, so, there is a parking fee.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe they should go back to their old location which is at the Cabanas Malolos, because the parking there is for free.
