    I have been working at Meralco full-time (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 - Administrative Assistant in Pasig City (Philippines)

    I worked at Meralco full-time (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".
