    I have been working at Meralco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great mentors
    - Leadership opportunities (even for some younger employees)
    - Engaging work
    - Growing industry
    - Learning opportunities (technical, managerial, even self-help)
    - Great benefits
    - Wide campus (with office buildings, banks, wellness center, gyms, etc inside)

    Cons

    Given that this is a huge company (of over 5,000 employees), bureaucracy can get in the way at times. Regardless, management is doing its best to decentralize control and enable employees.

    Keep up the good work! The industry is changing at a rapid pace, and I admire your flexibility to adapt.

    Pros

    Good health benefit, high salary,excellent training every promotion, ISO credited. I'm missing my buddies and the company itself (Meralco).

    Cons

    World class standard, competitive skilled worker you will be, if being employed in Meralco. Continuous promotion, all offices are working properly, time-off policies are awesome.

    Advice to Management

    Never stop to pursue for the Meralco vision. May the management educate the lineman / substation man in financial handling. Most of us quit in Meralco because of financial problems, even we already had a good salary. I'm a foreman in substation South O&M ID#15041-7
