NGCP is a good company to those who has a degree in BS Electrical Engineering. You skills will be developed if you will be assign to technical side. However what I dont like is that the salary is not fair to all. The salary of the engineer who were hired 1 year after I was hired was significantly more than I received knowing we have the same position and nature of work.
salary not fair
In a typical day at work, I am on a shift. I monitor the delivery of power and often times I performed switching on the control panels. The management are relying on our maintenance and operation of the substation and our daily reports. During my shift, I am the only engineer at the substation, my co-workers are on a different office and available only during the day. The hardest part of the job is restoring the operation of substation during blackouts or power interruption specially during night shift. The most enjoyable part of the job is when there's no power interruption and i can use computer to enhance my skill and knowledge.
Free time at work.
No assistance at work shifts.

The job begins with endorsement since it is a 24-hour operation. I learned the system on how electricity is passed on to different customers. The hardest part of the job is when abnormality occurs on the system. This usually happens during rainy season wherein strong winds are present and lightnings occur. This will cause the breakers to tripped causing absence of electricity to different customers. We need to analyze the situation fast and coordinate with different groups for a fast restoration of power. The most enjoyable part of the job is when everything is alright thereby no too much pressure from the customers and superiors.
