    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    (i) Most admired company in Brazil; (ii) An excellent policy of employee trainning; (iii) lot of opportunities to grow; (iv) Many crucial unresolved technical problems to address.

    Cons

    (i) Extremely large company; (ii) because of that, decisions are taken too slowly sometimes; (iii) as a public company, sometimes what is the best for company it's not what is implemented.

    Advice to Management

    I think the one of the most important issue in Petrobras is its employee allocating process. You have the right people and a lot of opportunities. Try putting the right people on the right job and you will have extraordinary result.
