    I worked at Embraer

    Pros

    Superb products, high technology, many horizontal opportunities.

    Cons

    As you go higher in career, if you are not a "manager" you may be seen as an "expensive" person. Reorgs are constant and management are not professionals. Very poor communication. HR doesn't exists.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to employees. You are loosing future competitive capacity by loosing good people.

    I worked at Embraer full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    HR people are very friendly and helpful in the US.

    Cons

    Woman has not a great potential to grow in the company. Company's communication is not aligned, Brazil and US executives have conflicts, even in the same country. US executives barely speaks the official language of the company, Portuguese. They don't even try to learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more chances of promotion for woman and benefits to attend woman.

    I have been working at Embraer

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are only a couple of years from retirement. Generally speaking it offers good benefits and market salary. 401 K match up to 6% (dolar for dolar).

    Cons

    Company in the US resembles a family company where promotions are not given to those who deserve but they are based on non-professional criteria.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more selective when hiring new employees. Some new employees don't live up to the company's reputation. Company should also consider investing in employees' education. It is very common to have managers with high school diploma only.

    I have been working at Embraer full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good internal trainning, good products, good facilities

    Cons

    Weak internal mobility (almost none). Top management doesn't seem to know all problems. Process improvement tools are used extensivelly, expending valuable development time without real and measureable results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to experienced (white head) employees. Consider that there must be new people, but they need trainning and experience, so don't count on them for a jump start.
