Excellent

Lineman/Substationman (Former Employee)
Pasig, Rizal (Philippines)

I worked at Meralco full-time for more than 10 years

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

ConsWorld 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 Senior ManagementNever 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

The best place to retire

Rewarding and creates sense of national pride!

I have been working at Meralco full-time for more than 8 years

ProsStable 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.
