    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

    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.
