    Pros

    Here you are the owner of the product, this means a lot of responsibility but a lot of freedom as well.

    Cons

    It takes some time to feel confirmable in the company. Lack of documentation in so many aspects.

    Advice to Management

    The salaries should be higher because of the responsibility inside Mercadlibre, in another places people have the same salaries with way lower tasks.


  2. Great place to work, but you should expect 1-2 years of not-so-greatness

    Pros

    LOT of different projects related to e-commerce
    Own cloud to play with
    Freedom to choose whichever technology fits best to the problem you want to solve

    Cons

    The positions offered when you start are below than what I expected, and don't expect any promotion on the first year.
    Sometimes you become much neccesary to a project and it's difficult to get out.
    Many developers in different sites not always have the same code quality

    Pros

    You get to play around with a lot of technologies and managers encourage you to try new stuff. The infrastructure is huge.

    Cons

    There are periods where work/life balance is not so good. The learning curve is steep when you first join the company.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions should not be based solely on how long have you worked there

    Pros

    Work environment is very relaxed. Failure is an option if you are willing to take risks. You are free to use whatever technology you want for any given project. The company is always looking for ways to reinventing itself. The headquarters are very nice, although a little crowded. The environment is very open, so it's really easy to get in touch with managers at any moment.

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes too long to get promoted, salaries are not as good as they should be for developers

    Pros

    Flexible, fast paced, really cool people, interesting projects.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities take really long to come up sometimes. Bureaucracy is sometimes an issue.

    Pros

    Some highlights are its openness, flexibility, great working atmosphere, really good management, and a lot of chances of professional growth.

    Cons

    The downsides are maily related to its human resources policies, lack of clear incentives, lack of benefits towards the employee and not so good salaries.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to invest more in human resources policies, including better compensation and benefits to employees. Establish clear career paths and better retention plans for employees.
