    Better than average at the time for a Portuguese company

    IT Operations (Former Employee)
    Matosinhos, Oporto (Portugal)

    ProsSonae used to offer better than average salary and benefits to mid-management upwards jobs, and the status of working in the largest economic group in Portugal was interesting. This is also a diverse group of companies and businesses, which offers diverse experiences to its employees.

    ConsWith the economic downturn of Portugal Sonae was also affected. The salaries, whilst still interesting, are no longer above the average levels once experienced.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRotate your mid to top managers to different businesses, thereby offering also a diversified range of experiences, enriching for anyone's resumé. At the moment, the IT people that I know are working there have done so in the same place for years.

    Working at Sonae

    IT/IS (Current Employee)
    Porto, Oporto (Portugal)

    ProsMultinational and multicultural organization with a big presence in the world. Biggest employer in Portugal. Holding composed by several reputed companies.

    ConsDue to the size of the organization is not easy the professional growth. Organization very exposed to the european crisis.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is better to many small businesses, rather than few and large. Risk exposure is smaller and greater manageability.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
