People working there always render overtime. If you will not render overtime then the management will hate you. It's offering a salary higher than the minimum though so it's fine than the bank but you can learn a lot from the bank so I guess bank is better but well, it's a good foundation to work in SM then look for a better job after.

Beware of "The Good Guys!" so you won't fall into their trap.

So much politics that you can no longer perform your job properly and honestly.


There are far more better places out there which you deserve than this!

I'm the one who process the booking of my agent. I learned how managed all the rush paper works. The management is Good but salary is not. The culture there was very competitive because we have a big target quota that can hit by yearly because it will based the incentives of my agent it gives to me more pressure.

For six months that I worked here I've learned a lot of things in this company like marketing sales, bookings, to enhance my skills to entertain the client and my microsoft skills, and also my knowledge about business they took me a lot of ideas, It's fun to have an experience like this. As a newly graduate i feel lucky that my first job is in the office. The management is such a good influence on me they assist the employee well and especially the client. Even when the hardest time comes they always think positively and they can do all their wants. As i've said,the hardest part of the job for me is when the more sales comes but it gives a challenges to do my multi tasks well.
Pros
free foods
Cons

long hours work and also working 6 days a week.
I've learned a lot of things there as a property specialist but unfortunately there's a lot of instances that my manager give a favor to someones' importance ( Favoritism ) in short.
The management and the company is good enough to all employee. I like the workplace. The hardest part of it when times we do documentation itself without knowing. The most enjoyable part is when we I close a lot of deal with the client and also bonding with my team mates.
Pros
food tripping and bonding
Cons
Long hours of work and too far from my home

I live at Valenzuela City. From our house to Mandaluyong City where i was assigned, i need to wake up early and got home late because my shift started at 07 am- 07 pm or vice versa. I worked for night shift and morning shift, our shift changed every 2 weeks. As a CCTV operator, I need to have the strong personality so I can handle people and for them to see my capability. I learned to be a good team player and understand how to manage your social life to adapt in different people around me, to be humble and to know how to please the customers and client, and enhance my leadership skills, my communication skills and to be matured to understand things around us. I need to be vigilant at all time since i am the eye, the heart, the controller and the connector of the security team. I need to know what are happenings within my area, all areas that the cameras can see. I gain self-confidence and knowledge about the security industry. I was assigned in different places, 5 different condos since i was the most knowledgeable operator to train a new operator for different condo. The management was great and awesome, they are very approachable but strict, which i believe is a must. The hardest part is the travel, i don't have enough rest because of my travel time. I spent almost 5 hours for back and forth and it was so tiring. The most enjoyable part is the training, i learned how to handle and use guns and i loved it, the martial art training, the seminars and also the bonding with the co-worker. Since, were working for 12 hours a day, we have more time to bond than our own family while - more...

none

My work at SM Development starts at 9am and ends at 6pm however, we usually extend our working hours until 8pm. At SMDC, I have learned how to deal well with different types of people, how to communicate and address the needs of the Customers both internal and external. The Management has been very supportive to the employees and my co-workers are fun and approachable.

The hardest part of the job is during month end when we have to achieve and ensure that we have reached our monthly targets. At the end of the day, it will always be fun to learn that we have gained new friends and continue to learn while working through the experience we encountered during the day.
Pros
Bonus and Incentives
Cons
Long Hours

- Looking/hunting for possible buyers and successfully close out a real estate sale.

- I have learned to become confident to talk to other people especially the rich ones, how to negotiate based on the terms and know more legalities regarding real estate.


- Management is good but poor back office.

- Co-workers are tough competitors. At the end of the day, all of us have the common goal, to successfully close out a real estate deal.


- Hardest part of the job is to reach specific individual quota. Selling a Property isn't easy as it gets.


- Dine out and celebrations, and successfully closing out the sale. Also the relationship built with the buyer/client.
Pros
Very Good Compensation
Cons
Long hours of work, specially working on holidays

My stay in the company has been one of the toughest experience of mine. The everyday work is high-volume since that is really the nature of the activities there but it is really fulfilling. At the end of the day, you will see that you have achieved something you didn't even think you can. Adding up to the god point of the management is that they allow you to do your tasks your own way without suffering the effectiveness of the entire department. My stay in SMDC was pleasant and it thought me things that i could bring to my next engagement and endeavors.
Pros
Management allows you to grow and develop

We inspect units if the third party have endorsement for inspection (hallway, common areas & units). We also estimate how much it cost if the Unit Owner punchlisted some items that are not part of our rectification job. The management are good, they've given the employees the chance to learn and be more productive in everything we do. My co-workers are my learning team, we share different ideas on how to make our work easy and have quality. Our given job are manageable, on how to connect with the contractor so that the given rectification or punchlisted items will be ready after our inspection or one day after. All part of the work are the most enjoyable, we learned to connect with different client & employees. "Make your learnings be greater than your experience."
Pros
Free Snacks, Time management

Have to check the daily Staff report if the post dated checks maturing that day are credited in the company's account in 4 banks and have to cancel official receipts issued for bounced checks and emailed banks for some problematic checks encountered.

This is one learning experience for I got to communicate with bank's executive and know some of their online banking systems and technology.


Management has an organized hierarchy wherein we know when and to whom problems encountered can be addressed to. Strict in attendance and absences. They keep on developing our communication skills.

The hardest part of the job,for me here is we have to think to enhance/improve our process system.


We have a good camaraderie and work relationships with one another in the office. We help each other for the good of the company.


The most enjoyable part, I should say, is learning every new technology in the workforce.
Pros
Getting a corporate discount in selected restaurants.
Cons
Long hours of work sometimes.

* Monday to Saturday, days at work
* I learned to deal with different types of clients/customers, projects presentations to a group of people local and abroad, and events planning and execution in Europe.

* Their management is fine
* My co-workers are okay
* The hardest part of the job for me was the location from my house. It takes me more than two hours to travel going to work and three hours going home.

* The most enjoyable part of the job was given an opportunity to travel
