    In Meralco, I experienced working in a family-oriented environment.

    Associate (Current Employee) Pasig City (Philippines)

    ProsThere 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease compensation based on industry standards.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stable Company

    Administrative Clerk (Former Employee) Pasig City (Philippines)

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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Superb

    Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) Pasig City (Philippines)

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

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

    Good company like family

    Analyst (Former Employee)

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

    Rewarding and creates sense of national pride!

    Billing Staff (Current Employee)

    ProsStable 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.

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

    Meralco Powercamp Internship - one of the best internship experiences you will have as an undergraduate.

    Intern (Former Employee) Pasig City (Philippines)

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

    Some of the best times in my life

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) Pasig City (Philippines)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementI 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".

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
