    Stable Job.

    Systems Analyst (Current Employee) Curitiba (Brazil)

    ProsGood environment to, but you must have luck to take a good manager. You can plan your carreer and there is a lot of trainning. There is a huge difference between the projects behaviour if it is a project for the front office or the back office.

    ConsThe HR lives in another world and do not expect more than 5% increase in your income. It's the determined roof! The processes are unconnected and it's common to find someone that will make really complicated simple things. It works with ancient technology and the HR have agreements between them to block you from going to another jobs. The HR process also can take very a long time to happen, and as result resources are lost to another companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake the salaries follow the market, we know how much the new commers receives. Reveiw the HR process and take out the focus from India. It is blocking other countries GLTs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
