Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Benefits and salary is good but I see no or little growth on my career as a Lighthouse Keeper. Also no or little room for new things to learn. Also going in and out from the Island is very risky specially during stormy and rainy seasons. Also transportation is a big problem for me as I am from La Union.

Best career I ever had.

It was a tough one, very challenging, exhausting but over all, for me it was worth it. The money I earn is enough to support myself and my family as well.


Great compensation. Great benefits.


Away from family.

Officers are friendly.

The officers are friendly but the other employees are not. Some will snob you but some employees always smile at you eventhough they didnt know you at all.


Free snacks and lunch.


Some boring workmates.

Productive workplace

PCG, an agency attached to the Department of Transportation and Communications of the Philippines, is simply a humanitarian and prestigious armed and uniformed service in the Philippines. Working with the Philippines Coast Guard requires excellent physical and mental conditions. Adopting military principles is a must. In my 4 months of working at said esteemed agency, all orders from officers that needs immediate action must be complied with carefully and surely.

Working at uniform government agency such as the Philippine Coast Guard is good and have comfortable working conditions.

Working with government uniform service such as the Philippines Coast Guard requires a excellent physical and mental conditions. It adopt military principles which is obey first before you complain. In my seven (7) in this institution assigned at Infrastructure Development Service, my work experience is not just to perform task in a day, you need to comply orders from officers that needs immediate action. Quick response to orders is needed as military do. Now, being a electrical estimator at the same time electricians, I manage to survive in my working environment since Philippines Coast Guard provide training and seminar relative to our duty. I do not any have any dislikes to this institution but I need to fine another job abroad in order to earn more to satisfy my financial needs.
