Arthur V. Ty
I have been working at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time for 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 Senior Management – I wish they had a fairer compensation scheme and better IT in place so that working there is rewarding..
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
