    We cant stay on the company after 6 months of internship, because they have to give the opportunity for others.

    Pros

    At Petrobras, you get a lot of trainning, there are a lot of perks. You know you can have a long career there. People are nice there too.

    Cons

    As a Software Engineer in a non Software Company, you have more to guarantee that the systems are working well for users (people that actually make the money) than to create new tools. Too many times you are learning about new software bought by Company, too few you are creating new software.

    Pros

    Stability
    Very interesting and big projects
    Excellent wage for undergrads and Good wage for manager positions
    Possibility (not likely though) to work in several places in Brazil

    Cons

    Extremely slow/bureaucratic in every sense (both career , HR, and company rithym overall)
    Not a meritocratic company at all
    Many people not willing to work and some other working hard
    Wage may be bad during some time/career position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut a bit of blabla and get faster -> money is the name of the game and REAL meritocacy is the only way to achieve results.
