    I worked at Banco do Brasil full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, the bank pays 100% of medical, dental, STD and LTD. You don't need a lot of experience to be hired, they just need to like you. Great place to start, learn and move on. Best department to work is Compliance.

    Cons

    The managers give unfair preferential treatment to the ones they like the most (Raise, Bonus Amount). Career advancement will never happen unless you become friends with the 2 managers, but remember you gotta agree with them at all times. It's a bank from Brazil in US but they still think they are in Brazil. All the high level executive managers come from Brazil, they stay here for a few years and go back, all they care is their promotion when they go back. The NY and Miami think they are better than everybody else and they demand to be helped right away. They often tell employees "If you leave there are a huge line outside waiting to take your spot", so no asking for raises lol. The HR manager used to be a recruiter in Miami, she does not even know how to login their ADP HRIS system and she gets aggravated when you know more than her. If you are a native US Citizen they will not bother you much as long you do your job. I could go on and on with the list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement policies and follow them. Bonus and promotions should be given by performance not favoritism. The high level executives should have a training about the Labor Laws in US before starting their job.

    Pros

    Very laid back work environment, people very friendly.
    Excellent fringe benefits.

    Not competitive salaries for non-brasilians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust salaries to market, even though your benefits are Ok. This will stop quality employee turnover.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Along with this, working with Brazilians is a huge treat because of how much closer the people always make you feel. Having worked with individuals from all around the world, they tend to be some of the most welcoming. The bank itself is also great. Many happy customers. It was rated among the top 5 in all of South America.

    Cons

    It took a very long time for me to be recognized with a pay raise despite working diligently for a long time. Some workers are a bit too laid back, and this can be frustrating when you have to cover their weight.
