    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.

    Benefits are really good. 100% paid health insurance, 401k
    Stable job since they rarely fire people.
    Pretty easy tasks.

    Cons

    Every department Totally unorganized. Not a lot of opportunities to grow in the company. A lot of poor educated employees. Good for an entry level person with no experience and no expectations.

    I worked at Banco do Brasil full-time (less than an year)

    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.

    I have been working at Banco do Brasil full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Some friendly folks there and they try to keep the atmosphere fun.
    - Learn a lot a lot about Brazilian culture and business ethics/systems.
    - Salary is on par with the industry average.

    Cons

    - I find myself plateauing and not learning anything, yet promotions are very very hard to come by for Americans or non-Brazilians. Not a single American manager in the bank.
    - Management is pretty dysfunctional. Some good folks there, but then there are some who have no clue about managing American employees with American business values.
    - Some managers are educated, but some have no clue and must rely on third world/street tactics (that would be unacceptable elsewhere yet OK here) to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Can't give real advice. They're doing a good job of keeping a Brazilian company for Brazilians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should get to review each and all employees performance more closely and have a plan to motivate employees, specially in the annual performance evaluation process
