    I worked at Caixa Econômica Federal part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    CEF provides great stability, benefits in terms of bank services and health insurance, theoretically 6 working hours which may be increased depending on your location/work demand/manager, great private social security.

    Cons

    The monthly raising goals lead to a constant pressure to reach them. Regardless of your last month performance, the next one has to always be better, and I can't imagine which is the limit for it

    Good benefits, but for a price - your soul.

    Pros

    Stability and benefits are the great part here. The health plan is the best of all I saw, since you pay almost nothing to get quality medical treatment. But maybe that's for a reason, as you'll read below. The office is ok. There's a lot of flexibility in time, allowing you to have a real life outside the work. Even with relative low pay, the bonus we get and the start and the end of the year are generous and almost make it worth.

    Cons

    It's government work, and this means that most people are more interested in doing things the way they can to get a promotion, and not because it's good work. Technical reasons are often in second plane, replaced for activities that gives the most visibility for the boss - regardless it's feasibility. Most of the people on the highest ranks have little knowledge about their responsibilities and often come with ideas that makes absolutely no sense in life, but want to see it executed nevertheless. So they create a mess (sometimes a legal mess) but they never have to respond to it, since they already moved on to another place with high pays. The problem and responsibility for it will be carried to the analysts who did it fearing for their jobs.

    If you care for quality, if you care for working for a good team to produce great results that could change the world, if you care for being respected for your knowledge and the things you can do then this bank is not for you. If you want to be part of a political system where growth means knowing how to game it and whose ass to kiss, the you'll be in home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really don't know since it would require people to see work differently - as a place to do great things, not a place to get benefits and go home.

    I have been working at Caixa Econômica Federal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Status, salary and stability. Possibility of career growth. Organisational and career path structures are well designed and clear to all employees.

    Cons

    A lot of political influence, specially on promotions. Salaries are above average however do not follow inflation growth. Connections and relationship (friendship or politics) are more valued than intelligence and competence - like all major jobs in the public sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to value, develop and stimulate potentials in the company. Stop being political and only thinking about their own stability. Thinking of the general company growth, one should consider incentives and valuation for the employees who actually deserve it.
