    Good learning experience at one of the largest banks in the Philippines, but comes with a lot of stress and poor IT

    I have been working at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training is adequate with plenty of classes. Senior management listens to your inputs if they find the time. Generally senior management comes across as a smart bunch of people. People tend to work hard but are still very willing to help.

    Cons

    Middle management is so-so for one of the largest banks in the Philippines. Compensation is low-to-average since their largest cost is manpower cost. Also, promotions are slow. Poor performance in any given year is punished by reducing the chance of promotion in the succeeding two to three years (usually though promotion is completely forgotten). IT systems are antiquated and development projects can be delayed by up to a few months to a few years. Since IT infrastructure is weak, most processes are performed manually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish they had a fairer compensation scheme and better IT in place so that working there is rewarding..

    Since the co. is an institution already, a good way to start a job but not for at least a year or two.

    Pros

    warm culture, stepping stone for a career in banking/finance.

    Cons

    -A very poor career growth, not for a long term occupation.
    -employer has lack of focus on extensive training. Why is it needs to be 10-20yrs as r&f to go to the management level? wherein they are capable of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be an overall good leader. and generous enough to give the employees what they deserve.
