    Pros

    It is the best place to work in Brazil. Good projects. Good clients. You can always learn something.

    Cons

    The price you pay is the salary. Every company that is so good doesn't pay well

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Dextra full-time

    Pros

    The last years Dextra has won several prices for being one of the best places to work. Most recent rankings: 2nd in 2015 middle-sized(50-500 employees) in Brazil, 4th in 2016 middlie-sized in Latin America Flat hierarchy, friendly "bosses", very transparent and democratic (decisions, feedback), extreme collaborative environment, highly motivated employees (one of the highest company values), applies true agile methodologies, good work-life balance, wants to be innovative, seeks high quality deliveries, people are crazy for new technologies, BYOD, tries to maintain a distractive environment (will be upgrade soon), recently started U.S. projects.

    Cons

    Performance matters (not really a contra, but might be an issue for whom is seeking a job), had some more or less surprising and annoying dismissal issues (which is usual in Brazil) in the past, could be much better equipped (but update/upgrades are announced), Salaries/Benefits are average

    I have been working at Dextra

    Pros

    Good work/life balance and collaborative people

    Cons

    Poor compensation and benefits. If some big project is canceled some employees are dismissed without mercy, this kind of stuff happens almost each two years. Children's rivalry with Movile.

    "Great place to work, but not fair in some points. Has a common practice to dismiss percentages of employees frequently."

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Dextra

    Pros

    - High possibility to learn new things. - Employees very optimistic, friendly, and always willing to help or teach you in something.

    Cons

    - Every 2 years, more or less, if the economic situation is not good, most employees are dismissed without mercy. It is a common practice. - Children's rivalry with Movile in terms of hiring interns. - Dextra can hire more interns than Movile, but many of them are unprepared and without compromising with the quality of the developed software. - In the hiring process they announce how easy is to get changing level and salary increases, with possibilities in each acessment (which occurs every 6 months), but in practice does not happen that way. It takes years of work to achieve the next level or have salary increases. -The benefits package are very poor. R$ 500 to split between health care, dental care, meal ticket and transportation.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Dextra full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are good, the work is interesting (when not dealing with legacy code) and they adopt the newest technologies available.

    Cons

    Sometimes they are too democratic, on my opinion, and this leads to a lack of direction form the higher management as people decide on most aspects of the business. There is innovation on technology but they struggle to train/lead people on the business aspects of innovation.
