    I worked at Embratel

    Pros

    A place where there is much opportunity for learning, with professionals who know a lot of the telecom sector. I do not see many positives besides learning and business location (Rio de Janeiro).

    Cons

    Family business with a highly centralized administration. There is no strong presence of HR. The work environment is bad with a very bad infrastructure.

    Former Employee - Senior Telco Engineer in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)

    I worked at Embratel full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - It was one of better companies to work for in Brazil during the 1970 and 1980, huge investments in technology and HR development

    -Some of the technical staff still are the best professionals in telecom and IT market in Brasil

    Cons

    - Salaries below the market average
    - HR development isn't anymore a concern of the new management
    - Company has lost its identity due a several financial groups taking hold and leaving the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, rise the salaries of the technical staff, it's a shame that very good professionals that worked along me 10-15 years ago are earning only 10% greater salary!

    I have been working at Embratel

    Pros

    Embratel logomark is very established in Brazil. You can add in your Curriculum "I´VE WORKED IN EMBRATEL". It´s used to say that Embratel is a very good school for great engineers and technical people, because the equipment investment and telecom network are the greatest in Brazil and Latin America.

    Cons

    It´s #ONLY# a "time do construct curriculum", because the carreer and growing expectatives are #VERY# low and enterprise employee recognizing is null. The salary is under the market average and the interference of "political facts" in technical decisions causes sometimes 30% to 40% of proctivity reducing...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to "cut down" the "public enterprise skill" came from the "old Embratel". Clean the technical decisions considering ONLY technical facts, fire the "political guys" those take decisions based in personal advantages and interests. There is a 40% to 60% of production - meaning $ - hidden in the "Embratel undergrounds", under the personal interests and the "strange decisions". My personal advice for JOSE FORMOSO MARTINEZ is to uncover the "Embratel´s operations diagram" because he will find, even very near him, VERY MUCH fund$ being misused to pessonal interests, and other amout lost by corrupted administration.
