    Great Benefits !

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThis company has amazing benefit program.

    Consnot too much internal hiring.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat everyone as you would want to be treated. Do not forget that " our people is what makes us fly" do not forget where you came from. I have see numerous times of people being promoted and being forced to do a lot of dirty work.

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

    Exciting place to be with great potential for upward mobility

    Product Development Engineer (Current Employee)
    Melbourne, FL

    ProsIn a growth mode with a lot of opportunities to advance and work on diverse projects. Great support from the team in Brazil. Management quickly addresses co-workers that are not a good fit in the organization. Good communication and a lot of passion in the office. Very supportive co-workers, everyone wants to succeed

    ConsMaturing some processes and having good IT support

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure the right people are brought on board as the company grows

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

    Great company to work for, so happy to be part of this adventure

    Product Development Engineer (Current Employee)
    Melbourne, FL

    ProsLots of opportunity, beautiful aircraft, great benefits, Florida living(!!) and being part of a global organization

    ConsThere is a need to be flexible and patient since we are still getting this off the ground. If you are happy to just be "a number" at Boeing or Airbus this is not for you!!!! If you want opportunity and an exciting challenge with a rewarding future ahead - Come join us!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing

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

    The "new" Engineering Department

    Product Development Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsEmbraer makes high quality aircraft and is a good company overall. Melbourne manufacturing plant is well organized and appears to be a good place to work.

    ConsPeople blaming problems on it being a start up company (meaning Eng department). Lack of processes, leadership, and teamwork. Not organized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire some experts. Give people the tools they need to do their jobs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Education and experience is frowned upon.

    Product Development Engineer (Former Employee)
    Melbourne, FL

    ProsBetter than unemployment, maybe. There are some good people there. Free coffee. The Brazilians are great. Benefits are great for single people.

    ConsAutomotive industry taking over. Boys club, buddy system in full force at this place. Highly discriminating environment. The less education and less experience you have the farther you will go here. They do not want you to see job titles, and will not give you job descriptions. Very hush hush to cover up how they treat people that have experience or education. Manager is trying to push out Brazil and take over with automotive industry. IT (I. T.) is a joke. No established HR department. You simply can not trust anyone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire your hiring manager before losing the rest of your valuable employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsGood 401k program, friendly and highly supportive team, great culture and values, breaking ground and implementing your ideas.
