    Pros

    Nice salaries compared to other IT companies. HR always trying to make you fill comfortable. Free transport for going to work and for going back home. Good working environment. Excellents oportunities to grow as a professional, and them depend on merit and not on academic status (for example) You are the owner of the things that you get up on production.

    Cons

    Not enough documentation. Managment indirectly asks you to work more than your 8hs a day, with watch turns for example (of those things you "own" and are currently productive).

    Advice to Management

    Need more documentation! Pay attention to watch turns because its unfair to work those hours

    Freedom to choose technologies to build the projects Good salary and bonus.

    Development process is not well defined. Duplicated code through different departments. Sometimes the promotions are made by favouritism.

    Pros

    Good benefits: food cards, health insurance, snack machine, english lessons after 6 months

    Cons

    Very bad code-base. No documentation at all. Not really a challenging job or at least nothing fun to do. As the IT team is just starting in México I would said management and HR are clueless how to handle the growth of the company, at least in México. Salary below average and false promises. Doesn't recommend

    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.


  7. 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

    Great place and great people. Lots of knowledge there, you will grow a lot as a professional and as a person as well.

    Cons

    You have to challenge yourself to everyday, always be ready for something new. Not sure about growth possibilities yet. Recruiters always make some promises that can't deliver.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on. Great culture.
