    You have time to do everything with high quality since enormous amounts of bureaucracy limit the pace.

    Systems Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsGood work/life balance (due to slow pace of a government-owned company); Decent compensation; Provides powerful hardware, at least for people involved directly with software development

    ConsSlow pace of a government-owned company; Many of my co-workers entered this company just to be able to work the minimum possible and yet receive above average compensation; Management ignores employees strengths resulting in a lot of frustration; Promotions have a high political component.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare about motivation; Diminish the amount of bureaucracy; Manage talents more wisely

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Rampant bureaucracy

    Systems Analyst (Former Employee) São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)

    ProsIt is a stable and secure job, with good a salary/benefits package.

    ConsSerpro is a highly bureaucratic company, which comes as no surprise, since we are talking about a (brazilian) government company. Their software development process is all based on the failed waterfall model, which means an enormous waste of precious resources.

    Since 2009, the CEO has been making technical decisions on behalf of the software developers. He has been promoting his crappy web development/dependency injection "framework", called Demoiselle ever since. It's quite embarassing for a software developer to have to put up with this authoritarian model of management. It's *not* the job of a CEO to make this kind of decision.

    Most employees are quite unqualified for the work they are supposed to do. This is due to the fact that the hiring process is based on public exams, which does not correlate to actual skills to do the job. Management usually does not bother to alleviate the problem. So, technical training is rarely offered. Besides there is no actual merit based policy, in order to reward the best performers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReduce bureaucracy, organize teams around project/teams and not around functions, promote work in small batches, listen to your employees and, most of all, study and try to learn something.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
