I have been working at Petrobras America

Pros

Bonus, Benefits (excluding 401K matching) and sick leave, and an excellent place to gain Operator's experience

Cons

NO room for advancement in the Company - especially if you do not connected and don't speak Portuguese! Job can be overly demanding at times. No retirement benefits, Lately, Communication and Transparency between upper Management and Employees are quickly fading away (FAST). Career Planning does NOT exist!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work will NOT be done without employees! You CANNOT depend 100% on contractors to keep your business up, as well as maintain it profitable and growing! Need to invest in a reliable capable core team and ensure you keep them content, included, and involved. Also, need to ensure your employees are allowed to grow and enhance their careers by investing in them, promote them, and provide opportunities…..

    I have been working at Petrobras America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very nice people. Friendly and helpful management. It is a pleasure to work with these kind of people. You feel secured and more responsible, knowing that your supervisor will do his/her best to support you and cover you back if needed.

    Cons

    A part of a large corporation, trying to act as a small company As a result, too much bureaucracy. There is not much training provided to employees, as they are expected to be experienced and skillful. Meetings rarely start in time.

    I have been working at Petrobras America

    Pros

    Good Health Benefits, flexible working hours

    Cons

    Poor management, have good code of ethic but useless, lack of procedures, employees do what they think is the best for them not for the company, employees work about 30 hours, lack of control in the contract of services complete absent of professional background revision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More control over employee too much money in hands of people with little experience, hire good professionals and stop hiring relatives and friends without any experience. Hire a good audit company to improve procedures.
