    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Brasil Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good entry point for young high potential future leaders 'if you can deliver.' Pay is reasonable, chance to work with talented and good professional people.

    Cons

    Really long working hours and demanding work environment. Company prefer to hire young and dynamic employees who can give more discretionary effort. No work life balance nor job security. No real leadership development or training plan.

    Advice to Management

    Please take care of the people who drive the business because... people are your biggest asset... treat them with more respect and genuine care for their well-being.

    Do not focus on short-term financial goals, look beyond and develop a long term strategy that will establish the foundation for growing a great company.

    I have been working at Brasil Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Open door policy: people are easily accessible on all levels. Multinational friendly environment, lots of talented people. Good standards for labor, their safety and comfort. Some departments are pretty good to work at.

    Cons

    Absence of work and life balance, ever increasing workload without increasing of FTEs. Lack of clear processes in all departments. Departments are not aligned from processes point of view, reaponsibilities are unclear between departemtns. A lot of unneccesaary policies and actions coming from Brazil, but they are far away from local realities. No clear career paths, no investment into development of employees. No bonus or salary increase. No motivation. People are unhappy and stressed

    Advice to Management

    To invest into people: their development, well- being. To have adequate amount of people per departments to cover all the tasks in a normal manner.
    To have strong policies and procedures and constantly work on simpkifying them and truly innovating the way we work.
    To fine managers if they employees are constantly staying late.
    People is your main asset. Take good care of them
    Increase social programs of giving back to community.
    Stop giving preferences to Brazilian. BRF needs people with local exposure and expirience. Equalize the salaries among expats and non expats

    Pros

    BRF is a company with so many good things, like the positive energy and the really very low hierarchical structure, open door policy at all times (no offices has doors at all) they believe in youth and their potential, the expansion and the exposure you get while working in BRF is invaluable.

    Cons

    Lack of structured processes which leads to lack of transparency regarding career development that demotivates people. too much innovative ideas that we tend to forget the basics.

    Advice to Management

    To have a clearer and wiser business strategy that can be translated into tactics and practices that give tangible outcomes.
