    I worked at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They value most on customers and with high quality of service. They offer a very satisfactory salary. A good standard on employee empowerment and self improvement.

    Cons

    Some senior officer on the countryside levels are promoted trough palakasan system but not quite qualified for the position and upon assumption of post they mostly under estimate rank and file especially those that committed some mistakes during their assumption as junior officers.

    Advice to Management

    Higher management should have a comprehensive screening on some officers before they are promoted to senior officers including a survey on rank and file and not just depend on recommendations of other senior officers.

    Pros

    Good environment with positive atmosphere. Its great working with loyal customers who believe in that " small town banking feel " !

    Cons

    Negative press has been discouraging recently but there is nothing that can be done about that. The media likes to tell their stories and that has affected everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job overall. Good practices exemplified by management in navigating a tough recession for everyone have made everyone feel confident in the way the company is being run.

    I have been working at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. Salary & benefits are up to par
    2. Working condition is conducive
    3. Opportunities to hone & develop your skills are great
    4. Recognition & promotion is high but competitive

    Cons

    1. Current state of affairs in the management of the bank is admittedly very hard as compared to the past management. There is a culture of fear thriving & growing every day in the bank because of new policies, guidelines, procedures, reportorial requirements & even the way these changes are being communicated or imposed upon the people of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Practically everybody in the organization sicerely cares for the bank. Yes there's a lot of going and changes to undertake to further the bank's growth but these can be done without sacrificing the morale of its people and the humanity of treating them as important and useful individuals and not like puppets or machines without feelings and emotions. After all, man is still and will always be the best resource in any organization.

    Pros

    Great people, good drive to win the deal, a good place to learn and network, met a lot of clients, good mentoring by the bosses

    Cons

    Technology needs to be updated, some confusing and redundant policies, some politicking required in order to get ahead, lacked manpower for the workload given

    Advice to Management

    Do not overwork the people and if warranted, please give them the necessary manpower in order to properly do their job within a reasonable amount of time without having to stay very late in the office or having to do unnecessary manual sorting of data, which could have been easily solved with a tech program
