      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at BTG Pactual

      Pros

      Not far from the Marta station

      Cons

      Grown up acting like children and always saying they dont like the job. But not doing anything to help someone else with the work to be able to learn how to do the job.

      Advice to Management

      Stop allowing people talk to other employees any type of way. Learn how to train people on what it is that need to know and act like adults at all time. Stop being considered about drinking all the time. Know that some people do care about their kids and their job as well.
