    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

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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