    I worked at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They provide good benefits for officers. Steady income of at least 15 months with a good chance of earning up to 18 months if you are a performer.

    Cons

    A lot of people are demotivated which would somehow affect the people around them thus high attrition across groups and divisions.

    Be open to suggestions

    Pros

    Good compensation package, pays up to 15 months plus allowance and performance bonus ( not guaranteed )

    I worked at Metropolitan Bank and Trust (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The good thing in working of one of the largest bank in the Philippines is that they pay more than what is required by law in terms of month paid per year. Metrobank has 15th month pay , compared to what is required by law which is only up to 13th month.

    Aside from that they also have medical benefits ,clothing allownaces and various de minimis benefits.

    Cons

    As to the cons, in terms of salary difference between rank & file and officers. The gap is wide which is almost double of that the salary of rank & file, although as an officer your responsibility is also higher compared to that of the rank & file

    Advice to Management

    Review the Salary difference between the rank & file and that of officers, because the rank & file workers do the dirty work aside from the fact that they don't receive a Profit sharing.
