Whatever you learned in electrical engineering will surely be applied in NGCP. It can be a challenge if you don't refresh regularly. The responsibility is also great because committing mistakes could affect a large area of the country.

Peter principle at its finest! lots of lazy workers not much has changed since being privatized. Patronage management is the key here. Nepotism is acceptable here, Promotions are a sham! draconic HR practices being masked by good compensation and benefits. Interim Promotion (Dry promotion) is practiced here they take advantage of their key employees and maintain lots of "deadwood" employees, blind loyalty top to bottom is required here. The culture of patronage is the key here to be successful (be patronizing to the old boys club). The goal of this corporation is just to make as many projects as they can without considering value engineering and cost benefit analysis for the Filipino people. The poorly engineered projects are being done (as expected with the culture of patronage). The Corporate shareholders are only concerned with the profits!!! That how this Basic commodity is being provided to the Filipino people.
Pros
Compensation and benefits
Cons
Culture

I enjoyed my stay in NGCP because of the people working there. I love how they let their OJT to freely move or have their own judgment in work. Also I really like the lights off benefits that they have in there.

Having been working with NGCP, it molded my mindset and professionalism relations with my colleagues and supervisors. Working abroad for 15 yrs made me learn and understand other cultures and religion of all sorts of nationalities. I can easily say that being employed with NGCP was somehow a first for me here in the Philippines.

I started as a Computer Technician, then rose from ranks then now a Senior Engineer.

The work is kind of boring in the long run, but it is a good place to start a career. People are great, workplace is good and competition is high. Learn to speak the language or give in to superiors to be noticed and given much more needed improvements. Bureaucracy is prevalent.


The job is easy and sometimes you create your own job and niche in order to thrive.


The hardest part of the job is when going on travel and you have lack of resources.


Enjoyable part is there's always a meal during meetings and seminars. Also, there's an internet access in almost everywhere. The work is not that hard, reports are somewhat easy but takes time.
Pros
Free lunch and snacks during meetings, birthdays and specials events.
Cons
Long hours of work is required to finish reports.

In a daily basis I explore many fields under Electrical Engineering to provide quality design and to safely implement the construction.in our company we practice good practice as we continue the practice of our seniors that we tent pass in the next generation. The hardest part of my Job I say is when the project required the latest technologies. It takes time for me to search and research the best
Pros
Free ride and accommodation during travel.
Cons
Political Issues in the company sometime.

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.
Pros
career advancement
Cons
salary not fair
