    Pros

    Great benefits, great salary above market average, job security, amazing balance between personal life and professional life. You come in at 8 am and leave at 5 pm. Nobody asks you to stay late.

    Cons

    Spoiled employees, people complaining a lot for no reason, too many rewards and no great challenges, it's a company for engineers, not IT guys, too much burocracy. Nobody wants to take responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Be tougher with employees, present real challenges, don't give too many rewards for no reason, be more reasonable, be stronger, be less political.

    I have been working at Petrobras (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It pays very well and has a nice health care.

    Cons

    The company treats you as if it owns you, sending you to wherever it wants, whenever it wants many times with costs to your personal life. No good career opportunities on IT. Managers don't know what they are doing (mostly).
