    Pros

    Best place I have ever worked. Great career plan, everybody is very friendly and helpful. Have awesome HR policies. Very mature company process-wise. I would definitely recommend if you're looking to develop yourself and work alongside the best people out there.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits are below market and part of the management outside Campinas (HQ) are poorly trained.

    Advice to Management

    The awesome CI&T culture is not so strong outside Campinas - should establish stronger foundation globally-wise, specially the management.

    Pros

    - fast pace company, dealing with many Fortune 500 clients in different scenarios and types of projects, turning out to be a great place to work and learn
    - very diverse and open minded people with great knowledge and expertise.
    - everybody treat each other like family, making you welcomed and
    - objective career plan makes it straightforward to know what you need to do next to continue growing

    Cons

    - only cons is related to salary and recognition. It pays below market average and demands more than what you would expect from similar position in the industry

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great work on streamlining the production model and target more value-added engagements so price is not the deciding factor for the project.

    Pros

    Ci&T is easily the best place I have ever worked. The company is forward-thinking not only in the technology solutions it develops/offers customers, but also in how it manages employees. Everyone is treated with respect and is truly supported and encouraged in all endeavors. It is an incredibly positive work environment that understands the importance of balance.

    Cons

    The company is growing quickly in terms of employees and business, so you are always really busy - but that is a good problem to have!!

    I have been in Ci&T for 6 months and my experience has been nothing but positive. Really intelligent people, super warm and friendly environment. Management is very agile in implementation of its sales plans. They listen and consider employees' recommendations.

    Cons

    Can't think of any so far.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great job of being concerned about the employees and develop new exciting products.

    Pros

    You can talk to anyone - there are no hierarchical barriers.
    The focus is on people development: opportunities for fast career advancement. I started as a developer and I am a VP now. It follows a "lean" mentality: it's constant learning - nobody is satisfied with the status quo. The company recognizes its mistakes and takes action.

    Cons

    The brand isn't globally recognized yet, so you may need to explain to your friends what it does. In some geographies there are very few employees (although growing), so you may not have 100 new colleagues immediately.

    Pros

    * Great opportunities to learn;
    * Passion for continuous improvement;
    * Vision of developing people (our strongest asset!);
    * Real opportunities to step up, grow and contribute;
    * Our clients recognize that we are better and bring more value than our competitors.

    Cons

    * Company grows fast year over year - it needs leaders faster;
    * If you do not want to contribute, to be challenged or to grow, Ci&T is not your place.

    Advice to Management

    Management has the right vision to bring us to the next level. It needs to provide opportunities and tools for the team to continuously improve - training, technical mentoring, people coaching need to stay as top priorities.

    Pros

    * Great work environment
    * Managers are open to talk, although they usually don't show this "openness" very well
    * Good overtime compensations (taxis, dinner, etc)
    * If you are lucky this can be an excellent company to work for.

    Cons

    * Too much overtime. Forget about planning your holidays and Sundays. Saturdays are even counted as regular work days in some projects.
    * Depending on the project and/or manager, you will have absolutely no work/life balance at all. I have experienced that in more than one project, and under more than one manager.
    * Salaries below average
    * Too much focus on GPTW yearly evaluation, they don't pay attention to what their employees really think.
    * They talk too much about taking care of the employees, but these principles will be totally forgotten in seconds if a lot of money shows up for the higher managers.
    * They are very late to recognize and promote the talents. Usually people from outside the company are more valued than those from the inside.
    * Usually, you won't get promoted unless you ask. Worse than that, you won't get promoted unless you work many, many extra hours per day/week/month.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in the care of the employees. People are not machines and everyone has limits. Most people won't tell their managers they are too exhausted because they fear losing the future growth opportunities.
