not a good place to work

senior management not fitted for the job , megawide claim to be first in engineering and design in the country but it the other way around, most of the technical staff don't know what they are doing , They expats that are useless. Too much politics in the company

Hr Head of the business units is very very unprofessional.

Final pay is not given in full. Favoritism in management is chronic. Very dirty politics inside. Culture is very toxic. Will not recommend working here.

Productive and work balance

All tasks are very challenging but you need to collaborate with the other team and the top management will support you right away. Good culture and work balance though stressful but still manageable

Pros

Compensation package and work ethics are exemplary

Cons

Longer hours and so many challenges in each in every section

Great exposure to the field, great learning experience

Construction sites are always full of stress so you have to learn to manage your resources and your time to finish all assigned works within the set deadline,Very good development from having the role of a Trainee to Operations to having a Supervisory role. The company cares about employee development though it depends on your superiors if they will support such growth,Management was a hit or miss, you'll have the chance to experience having a manager with no experience at all and prioritizes personal agenda to enrich themselves, or be handled by someone who will teach you everything they know about the construction industry,Good teamwork is what will make your stay at the company more enjoyable. Individuals with personal agendas is what will destroy it,The hardest part of the job is doing your best while not knowing for sure if you will be renewed after your contract duration or not. On-site employees won't be regularized unless you reach the managerial positions,The most enjoyable part is obtaining in-depth knowledge about the construction industry and challenging yourself every day to meet the expectations placed upon you.

Pros

Mid year bonus, Christmas bonus depending on project performance, Salary increase and promotion is yearly

Cons

Contractual, Years of service not compensated even if you reach 10 years or more, Layoff of employees during pandemic without compensation.

Productive and Challenging position.

Being an HR is a work that could have passion. You should have a heart of an empathy to staff. To Give the best HR services to the employee is the most satisfying job.

Bonding with co-workers

Every Friday, we gather to have bonding before ending the week and before other co-workers go home in their provinces. It's a good thing to have small talks and deep conversations with co-workers to assess the skills, attitudes, and sort of ideas that may add in strategies of management when it comes to their employees.

Pros

Time/Bonding

Competetive

Our experience has been a very positive one. Working with a management team that is accommodating and sensitive to our needs. Their professionalism shows in management and quality of work.

Very toxic environment, poor management

I dont reccomend this company to the young professionals since the management will not support you especially if u have issues with the site. I dont understand why this company hire foreigners thinking that these people would help or expert but in fact it ruins the production or making the accomplishment too slow. The company is big but poor management and very toxic

Big budgets do not always mean best results

Cash-rich companies like Megawide do not really care much for team-building. Company rightfully maximizes hired talent to work hard but hardly much mid-top management collaboration is allowed. Company has evolved into a multi-sector organization where the rank-and-file are disposable and the has become a hiring revolving door where tenure is largely non-existent. Even top management to VP level have left as the company struggles to create sensible career paths for each employee.

Pros

cash-rich

Cons

employees are disposable

Good only for the Managers

Nice Colleague/workmates. Promotions and regularization is only for the Managers but not in Rank and File employees. Difficult to get regularization and Promotions even if your working 5 years and up. Management always think about the savings. Overload office works. Overtime pay is only for the Operations. Good thing is they provide Medicard and incentives.

Office politics at its finest. Most of the staff in our site (Cyberpark Tower 2, Cubao, Quezon City) have been resigning because of the unhealthy working environment.

It is fun and challenging to work with this top caliber construction company.

Fun and challenging to work with. Six days work a week. Compliance with ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OSHAS 18001 and practices Project Management Professional Applications. It was a challenge to complete your staff. They provide seminars for review and updating of your skills in management.

Pros

Toxic Site

The site I was assigned in, Urban Deca Manila, was toxic. The management is really negative and treats employees bad. No encouragement. Sub contractors are treated poorly.
