    Former Employee - International Programming Researcher  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - International Programming Researcher in New York, NY

    I worked at Globo.com as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I could do my own schedule, the research was fun and exciting, because it always led me to shows and concepts that I didn't even know they existed. People were always very nice and ready to solve any problem I had.

    Cons

    My only con (if it is a con) is that I was based in NYC to do the research - obviously the purpose of the position - and I couldn't have any interaction in person with my bosses or colleagues, which could enrich my performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create new research online tools to make the virtual interaction more immediate and effective.

    I have been working at Globo.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A lot of training opportunities, inside and outside the company. If you need a kind of training, (and make sense) ask for it.
    People with a lot of knowledge, so you can discuss any problem with a lot of different people and get different point of view.
    All projects will be delivery to millions of users, so any solution needs to escalate to meet this huge demand.
    Challenge projects.
    Very Informal environment.
    Hackday/Hackathon every quarter.
    Good healthcare.
    Now we have breakfast fruits!

    Cons

    A lot of politics, internal and related to TV Globo
    Not a result driven company

    Bonus based on an evaluation with no clear definitions.
    The TV branch company has to much power inside the web company.

    I have been working at Globo.com full-time

    Pros

    A grate place to be in touch with high skilled people, new technologies and different developing languages.
    Everything is in high scale, demand and audience, so you got to be prepared to face challenges that you wont find only searching on Google.

    Cons

    Human Resources and Administration could be more supportive. The felling is they just do the minimum effort to help.
    They don't pay overtime, and it isn't measured officially for proper compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You got to focus in people as human beings not only as workforce.
    Investment in integration programs every 2 or 3 years, won't solve people's problems if nothing that is discussed changes

    Pros

    Nice people, great oportunity to learn, people actually see what you're doing, the most competent people you'll work with, a place where you can actually work and make new friends.

    Cons

    Politics, as we're part of the greatest media company in south america, politics are a big part of your life and if you don't like burocracy and need more independence, globo.com is not your place

    Pros

    - Working with some of the best Brazilian Software Engineers and Designers
    - Good Open Source Culture
    - Good benefits
    - Good company to have on curriculum
    - Working with some of the products with the largest audience in Brazil

    Cons

    - A lot bad managers
    - Very competitive environment
    - If aren't friends with the right people, you will not grow at Globo.com. No matter if you are a good professional
    - Low salary to live in Rio de Janeiro
    - You can be fired any time over there, if you have a problem with any manager. I worked at Globo.com almost 3 years and I saw a lot great professionals being sent away by stupid managers

    I have been working at Globo.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The huge product's audience, visibility, great professionals, benefits (health insurance, dental care), structure (money). Good references to know, lots of reading and study opportunities. It's still a good name to have on your resume. If you're going there, take your time to learn.

    Cons

    More talks than results, many managers, so much bureaucracy, salaries are not fair and so hard to change. If you're a creative person, you won't have space to do your best and even if you do, you may not have the credits. You'll get bored doing the same things over and over. Nobody cares about people and they probably won't listen to you. If you don't like politics don't go there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking that Globo is the only good option. Listen to your employees, don't treat them as replaceable stuff and be simple. You'll continue to lose great talents if you don't start to change.
