    Pros

    Working at Meralco gave me a lot of opportunities, in terms of career growth, training, benefits and salaries. The workplace is conducive for lifelong learning

    Cons

    As you climb the ladder, more pressure is expected. It becomes really stressful especially if you have to meet SLAs. One sad thing though is the issue on promotion and job rotation, especially if not communicated properly.

    Advice to Management

    To Mr. Lopez, Sir my family and I are thankful to you and your leadership. We have achieved what we have in life because I was employed at Meralco

    I worked at Meralco full-time (More than 10 years)

    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
