    I have been working at Petrobras America full-time (more than an year)


    Very nice people. Friendly and helpful management. It is a pleasure to work with these kind of people. You feel secured and more responsible, knowing that your supervisor will do his/her best to support you and cover you back if needed.


    A part of a large corporation, trying to act as a small company As a result, too much bureaucracy. There is not much training provided to employees, as they are expected to be experienced and skillful. Meetings rarely start in time.
