    I worked at HOCHTIEF as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great and young team
    Great salary
    Accomodation provided
    Everyone is willing to answer your questions
    Good company to do an internship
    Interesting projects

    Cons

    Work load was sometimes unbalanced, you could have not much to do one day, and the next one work would pile up on your desk.
    Sometimes work could be a little repetitive

    I worked at HOCHTIEF full-time

    Pros

    Central location, near a metro station.
    Great colleagues (most of them), experienced and hard-working.
    The company organizes social events every year, like team buildings, Christmas party, Family Day...

    Cons

    Poor communication between departments and upper management.
    No or very limited possibilities to evolve.
    No or very poor trainings (some of them political).
    Salaries go from very low to very high (the very high ones are also political).

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at HOCHTIEF

    Pros

    International company, well-known in its field, great oportunities to work outside Brazil

    Cons

    Senior management does not recognize educational achievements, like MBA, MSc or, in my specific case, a PhD. Contrary of what is public advertised, HOCHTIEF do Brazil does not support educational achievements, neither financially or in allowing time off for these activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should simply act as they preach to the market: invest in employees’ careers.

    No opinion of CEO
