    I have been working at Meralco full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Office is near home,no graveyard shifts,salary and benefit very good!

    Cons

    Most of the employees are too afraid to go out of their comfort zones,they were too pampered.

    Advice to Management

    If you really wanted to stay on top,invest more on your people's training. As in hard core training and please review the current job descriptions, its really out dated. You have a lot of executives/managers/officers who are now very disengaged, they do not inspire us to be better, act on that soon or they might pass the disease like a virus.

    I have been working at Meralco full-time (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 Management

    Increase compensation based on industry standards.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Challenges are the constant negative issues regarding power rates and sometimes some irate customers can no longer distinguish between the company and it's employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the rank and file personnel who has loyally served the company for more than 20 years.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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