    I worked at Metropolitan Bank and Trust as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Managing supervisor for the interns at the time was very accommodating despite own schedule; gave lectures that supplement classroom learnings

    Cons

    As intern, tasks were a bit clerical (filing of papers, preparing Excel database)

    I have been working at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Be patient to wait for your promotion as it may take forever. Also, forced ranking policy puts too much pressure on some people forcing them to be evil

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Branch Operations Officer
    Former Employee - Branch Operations Officer

    I worked at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time for 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Metropolitan Bank and Trust full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
