    I have been working at Petrobras

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Main pros: stability and trainings.

    Cons

    Main cons: bureaucracy and salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Geophysicists receive a very low salary, despite the great importance of the same for the company. In addition, there is a policy to go against the interests of the workplace of geophysical junior (even if there is vacancy in such workplace).
