    If you are an engineer, this is a good place for training but not advisable to stay for long term.

    I worked at Meralco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Good place for training.

    2. Health benefits

    Cons

    1. MERALCO DOESN'T GIVE EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES TO EMPLOYEES AND APPLICANTS. Career opportunities and extensive trainings are only given for few new comers who got good grades in college and not to those who have proven themselves to be productive and efficient. Meralco offers higher starting salaries to employees who graduated from "popular" manila schools.

    2. It is an engineering company where engineers and technical persons are not well compensated. In fact, many of these technical guys just come and go. They resign from Meralco and join other companies local and abroad. Average salary of engineers working for more than 5 years could not even support the expenses of a small family with decent lifestyle. The company is more focused in providing good welfare and resources to athletes, who don't even contribute to its income rather than the technical and field persons who are the breadwinners.

    3. More often than not, regardless of individuals' competencies or abilities, opportunities for managers and high performance ratings are only confined to the close friends/acquaintances of the VPs and up.

    4. Powerless employees' union group - always agree with the managements' proposal for low salary increases (average of 1,500 increase in monthly salary per year). No efforts made to counter job lay-offs.

    5. Not a safe workplace - the company is reluctant to spend the required safety equipment and training for ALL field employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to focus and take care of your technical employees.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Increase compensation based on industry standards.
