    Pros

    Superb products, high technology, many horizontal opportunities.

    Cons

    As you go higher in career, if you are not a "manager" you may be seen as an "expensive" person. Reorgs are constant and management are not professionals. Very poor communication. HR doesn't exists.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to employees. You are loosing future competitive capacity by loosing good people.

    Pros

    Benefits. Excellent product to work with..

    Cons

    No business strategy. Lead by consensus. The most political and bureaucratic organization I've been with or heard of. Archaic business processes, systems and methodologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Control means nothing without positive business results.

    Pros

    HR people are very friendly and helpful in the US.

    Cons

    Woman has not a great potential to grow in the company. Company's communication is not aligned, Brazil and US executives have conflicts, even in the same country. US executives barely speaks the official language of the company, Portuguese. They don't even try to learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more chances of promotion for woman and benefits to attend woman.

    Pros

    This company has amazing benefit program.

    Cons

    not too much internal hiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat 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.

    Pros

    In a growth mode with a lot of opportunities to advance and work on diverse projects. Great support from the team in Brazil.

    Cons

    Maturing some processes and having good IT support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the right people are brought on board as the company grows

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    Embraer 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some experts. Give people the tools they need to do their jobs.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Automotive 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 ManagementAdvice

    Fire your hiring manager before losing the rest of your valuable employees.
