    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change everything, clean it up, the products and Market are awsome but the company just makes a mess around.

    Make it more fair and meritrocratic in order to attrach and retain the talents. Fire the unprepared managers that make a lot of Money and hold the company back.

    Pros

    Potential for growing. market leader, friendly and respectful staff. Good salaries comparing to Brazilian market. Great health insurance plan and dental plan.

    Cons

    Since it is a product of a merge, some policies are not well established. Since the company is still trying to find the best model to operate, instability is a problem. Strategy constantly changing, which results in lost of time and efforts. High discount for health insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve benefits. Implement an efficient appraisal system for promotions.

    I have been working at Brasil Foods full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A huge company with growing business perspectives in the world.

    Cons

    There is a negative environment among employees... most of them do not believe in the company and are not satisfied with the job, it is not a cool place to work, people do not like it. After the merger, employees that stayed in the company expected an upgrade in their salaries, benefits and job, which did not happen and people are waiting for a long time without any raise, only cuts in costs. The company did not performed as expected with the merger, there is not a common culture and in general people do not believe in the success of the company. The HR programs, such as the trainee program, are a joke... they promise many things during the hiring process, such as fast growing perspectives and many benefits, and later on they pretend we all understood it wrongly.... Also the current culture of influences is disgusting... it really does not matter if you are outstanding at your job... if you manage to make the senior management happy enough you will be promoted, if you have a different point of view you are fired... if you don't do anything (including working) and keep your mouth shut you keep your job forever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up! It is time for BRF to became a professional and serious company, you are loosing talents and money daily.

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil)

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

    Pros

    Software and network speed were good enough to do the work properly, although they severely lacked some back up system that would provide working conditions when all the network crashed. Other than network issues, we could get anything solved in the very same day, as opposed to waiting weeks for anything as in the public companies.

    Cons

    Company pushes not to pay the benefits we were promised upon hiring offer, like profit sharing or paying for tuition among others. The upper management and management in general lack of focus and alignment with all levels of employment, which makes a lot of employers satisfied since most of them are given goals impossible to reach with the tools and conditions provided by the company.

    Pros

    The company has a flexible dressing standard. It depends on the area you act, and you can work on jeans and sneakers.

    Cons

    The Human Resources area is non-existent.
    They do not care if you want to build a carrer. They do not think in terms of "career".
    Leaderships are chosen considering strictly your political influence. It does not really matter if one has qualifications, background experience or the ability to deal with people. It only matters if you know someone who likes you enough to put you in a leadership position. The main point one thinks about when choosing a manager is: who can I put on that position that is my friend, and deserves to have a bigger salary? They will never ask: who can be able to bring best results and cheer people to work better? They do not really car for employees self-being. It goes from the fodds they offer for lunch time, to the lack of transportation to the company building - which stands in the middle of nowhere, with no public transportation access around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need a serious Human Resources Program and a serious Leadership Program, which is capable to stop the culture of "favours", and implement the culture of ethics, values and competence to hold a position.

    (Translated from English)

    Pros

    Probablement l'entreprise la mieux positionnée dans l'industrie (échelle, compétitivité dans la production, santé financière, envergure globale).

    probably the best positioned company in the industry (scale, production competitiveness, financial soundness, global reach)

    Cons

    Atmosphère de renouvellement des employés (incertitude, compétition malsaine). Fusion de deux compétiteurs de même taille (Sadia et Perdigao) qui a besoin de créer une culture nouvelle et unique.

    turnaround atmosphere (uncertainty, not-healthy competition). Merge from two same-size competitors (Sadia and Perdigao) needing to create a new/unique culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stratégie et cohérence devraient marcher main dans la main. Il n'est pas bon de changer entièrement la stratégie de l'entreprise tous les 3 ans... Il y a aussi beaucoup à améliorer en termes de communication et de rapidité de prise de décision.

    Consistency and strategy should walk together. Not good to review the company´s entire strategy every 3 years... There´s also a lot to improve on communication and speed on decision making.
