    Pros

    The main office in São Paulo is conveniently located, there are many options of restaurants nearby and it's easy for public transportation.

    Cons

    For the last 3 years this company is facing a turnaround to change the culture and increase profitability for shareholders. That simple reason have a huge impact in employees's lives.
    - Lack of stability: I faced 4 massive layoffs in less than 3 years. Imagine going to work everyday wondering if you are the next one to be fired.
    - Inconsistent strategy: leadership changes constantly and everyone wants to implement their own strategy which has a huge impact for the ones who have to implement.
    - Extremely hierarchical, which means that only the board make decisions, everyone else just execute and are not allow to make questions.
    - Lack of bonus and compensation adjustments, they set impossible goals every year and no one receive the bonus.
    - Lack of respect and ethic, I've worked with the most disrespectful leaders that constantly loose their heads in meetings and they still think they're right.
    - Lack of transparency, this is not a meritocratic company. People are promoted ONLY because they have good relationship with someone that is influent and not because you delivered good results.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink everything.
