The Slow and Painful Downfall of PLDT



The last time I talked about PLDT’s so called “MRP” and how deceptive it is on their workers. We’ll guess what? The total number of employees being axed by their so called delay in service has surfaced to 450+ employees.

PLDT listed as the second most valuable company in the Philippines have finally got the message on how realign their company to quality standards and that is by booting their employees. I’ve already tackled this issue a long time ago, and if you didn’t know here’s a short run down how MRP works. Basically, it is a care package that consists of “sweetened offers” by the company to entice they workforce in giving up their positions. Sort of like a “separation fee” if they bite into the trap.

We’ll PLDT is a reputable company say so the least. But at some point it is now slowly degrading by the minute.

First of all, they are laying off a number of employees and that could possibly indicate that the internal core business process is killing the company itself. If the company you’re working for is considered to be as “reputable” then an indication of a lay-off is automatically a red flag.

Another one that keeps popping into PLDT’s failure is the fact it is owned by another entity. Surely enough, if you are a Filipino company that has business tidings in the Philippines, the mere fact that you that you are a Filipino is a great way of supporting the country. However, PLDT proves to be the opposite. Owned by an Indonesian Tycoon Salim, PLDT is just one of foreign companies being pulled by its strings by none other than MVP. Although the company had its few successful run over the last couple of years, but it seems that PLDT is slowly degrading through the years with its poor service.

The failure of their service at NAIA in the past couple of weeks is just one of the many disruptions that they have made in the country and it will still continue to grow in numbers in the coming days. With massive lay-offs in their internal workings, then pretty soon PLDT will slowly fail its customers.
