    I have been working at Meralco full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is work-life balance in Meralco. Employees especially those assigned in Ortigas have the easy access to Meralco's sports facilities. People are friendly even the bosses especially of CIT group. As part of CIT family and Customer Management Systems in general, I was able to work wearing different hats which for me is an advantage. The government regulations make work in CMS even more challenging. Trainings are free and without bonds. We have a number of guaranteed bonuses in Meralco. Benefits like hmo and leaves are at par with other good companies.

    Cons

    The compensation for CIT employees lower compared to other IT companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase compensation based on industry standards.

    Good benefits. Career growth with continuous training opportunities. Corporate Social Responsibility is top notch. Continuously improving processes and is abreast with technology.

    The processes in Meralco are all world class. They provide trainings to their employees. It has a Work & Life balance.

    Since it is a very big company, there is somehow a limited room for growth in advancing to the corporate ladder.

    Pros

    Good pay, many benefits. The company took good care of its employees.

    Cons

    There can be so much politics. Less opportunity for career growth.

    To give chance to younger employees because there are so many people in the management position who will never let go of there position.

    I have been working at Meralco full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Stable electric utility company with lots of business opportunity in national and international scale. Creates sense of pride to be part of the largest electric utility company in the Philippines.

    Cons

    Exposed to negative issues regarding high energy prices, in which Meralco serves only as a distributing company and does not directly generate and transmit power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to find ways on how to improve controllable rate prices, employee empowerment and sustain supply of electricity in response to economic growth.

    Former Employee - Intern in Pasig City (Philippines)

    I worked at Meralco as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    -really high allowance/salary (higher than a lot of salaries for actual jobs)
    -lots of seminars/development/leadership programs

    Cons

    -the talent of the interns were not harnessed to their fullest potential
    -selection for the top10 does not accurately reflect what we all think as the real top 10 (some of the better people did not get a slot while the can possibly get one)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -better selection process for the top10 interns and for the awardings

    I worked at Meralco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Top management was into re-engineering and multitasking was introduced. You are given the opportunity to find and develop your strength.

    Cons

    As you develop your strength, multitasking may at times hinder your growth because of the other tasks you have to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I left the company in the transition period so I am in no position to comment other than to say that I hope that Meralco will remain as "Liwanag ng Buhay".
