over hyped, under delivered

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Melbourne, FL

I worked at Embraer

Prosexciting projects involving new technology, celebrated diversity of national and cultural backgrounds in office

Consobserved gender discrimination against women. lack of accountability in leadership toward their teams. futile ethics violations reporting process. observed favoritism and hiring of personal friends and family members (nepotism). observed anger management issues amoung managers (yelling, cursing at employees). lack of hourly pay (this amounts to unpaid overtime in salaried positions). observed under-paying of qualified new employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove your ethics violations reporting process - observed lack of confidentiality caused several employees to suffer retaliation and alienation. This would resolve many of the other problems if fixed.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Best Job I have ever held

Line Assembly Tech (Current Employee)
Melbourne, FL

I have been working at Embraer full-time for more than a year

ProsSuperb benefits, great management, growth possibilities, competitive pay for the area. I have never encountered a work environment such as this. It is one of the best places I have worked in my aviation career.

ConsIf there is on it is only that it is a start up. So we are working through all the growing pains of making this a full facility and getting everyone up to speed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Place for retirement

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Embraer

ProsGreat place to work if you are only a couple of years from retirement. Generally speaking it offers good benefits and market salary. 401 K match up to 6% (dolar for dolar).

ConsCompany in the US resembles a family company where promotions are not given to those who deserve but they are based on non-professional criteria.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more selective when hiring new employees. Some new employees don't live up to the company's reputation. Company should also consider investing in employees' education. It is very common to have managers with high school diploma only.

Great job experience, but with amateur managers and directors.

Flight Test Engineer (Former Employee)
São José dos Campos, São Paulo (Brazil)

I worked at Embraer full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFor the engineers, the activity of aircraft development is great!

ConsAs you get more experienced, there is the risk of taking charge of bureaucratic tasks, and the real engineering pleasure is forgotten.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf someone is very good technically, maintain him/her in the same position. Do not throw administrative tasks onto someone who may not like it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Embraer is an amazing company for those who dream of building and working with airplanes.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Embraer

Pros- One of the few opportunities to work in the development of high technology in Brazil.
- São José dos Campos/SP (it's headquarters) is a nice, organized and relatively cheap city to live .
- The company seems to take care of it's people.

Cons- Careers advance in the same timeframe as the development of aircrafts. What is regular time for the company can be the time of a life for people.
- Not many options where to use the specialized knowledge gained there if you for whatever reason decide to leave.
- Salaries for being highly specialized is about the same as for working with something else less demanding.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
