I have been working at Embraer

Pros

Great 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).

Cons

Company 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 ManagementAdvice

Be 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.

    Pros

    It is a great place to start your career.
    It has several training opportunities.
    It is perhaps the only place in Brazil where engineering is done at a high level and in large scale.

    Cons

    It is difficult to move among different positions.
    Once you reach a certain level it gets even more difficult as the salary increases and very few opportunities are given to the ones with experience (and have the highest salaries).
    The company has no policy for expatriation so the company misses the opportunity to create a truly globalized environment (with workers from abroad in Brazil and vice-versa).
    We usually say that the company is a "multi-local" company, instead of a multinational company, as it is in several countries, but the sites are all segregated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say salaries are ok, nothing out of ordinary.
    Culture is an issue, it is fake, things are imposed under fear.
    Everything gets political, people use good initiatives for self promotion (for example the program for productivity increase which fell in disuse mainly because middle management used it to self promote themselves by faking the numbers to show a better situation than the reality).
