    Wonderful product, opportunity to learn, good environment between work mates, the charm of the Brazilian culture, good fringe benefits package, global exposure

    Unbalanced professional and private life. Cultural difference between headquarters and sites not perceived nor handled as an advantage. Leadership does not value subordinates as necessary to foster a good working environment and productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Being a technology driven company, with very long, expensive and sophisticated development cycles for all its products, internal decisions needs to be better balanced between technology driven and dividends driven interests. Values to be better practiced than preached.

    I have been working at Embraer full-time

    Pros

    Great working environment, good management and solid industry and HQ support. Locals are managing the operation. HQ people is very cross cultural oriented, due to Brazilian country background of open and mixed society.

    Cons

    Long working hours, due to 11 hours time zone difference with HQ. Interactions with HQ can be very exhausting due to long trips and phone calls. HQ personell knowledge of China is somewhat limited and sometimes insufficient to invest in mutual development of potential business opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Improve long trips conditions. Increase top management knowledge of China, incentive more top level trips to understand China.
