    I have been working at Embraer full-time

    Pros

    Was able to move onto a different program shortly after starting.

    Cons

    To many "middle men" You have to talk to one person to get something fixed and they send you to another person, and so on.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to use the Pull system, NOT Push system like we are doing currently.

    I have been working at Embraer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some very talented people working for the organization and very dedicated to it despite the frustrations. The pay is good, and I believe that this is one of the few reasons people stay longer but after approx. 2-3 years, the honeymoon is over.

    The European offices are far more relaxed and pleasant than the Brazilian ones.

    Very international environment.

    Cons

    Brazil. They want to centralize everything unfortunately they do not have the capacity in-house to handle international issues.

    Management. Most of them have been with the company since day 1 of their careers. They do not know how things are done except the "Embraer way" ... and their way is not in line with most MNCs,

    Control and command culture. A lot of "because I say so" and egos are at play. They want to pretend they're moving to a meritocracy yet the roots of people who have been there for ages and are against change are deep. You'll need to dig them up before you are competitive with others.

    Poorly organized. Everything is last minute. It is only fire fighting, nothing is structural.

    Advice to Management

    Whatever you are doing, stop. You are terrorizing people. People are fed up. People fear for their jobs. This passion for excellence to make the company the most efficient in its class is nothing more than an exercise in cost cutting and job cutting. Nobody is fooled. The inefficiency is primarily in Brazil, with old timey leaders who will just not do things differently. Some of them are even board members.

    I have been working at Embraer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At this time I cannot list any.

    Cons

    Lost focus on core value "Our people are what makes us fly" . People have become a source to cut and discard like garbage. The culture was much better before the New CEO and his team assumed command. They're only interested in selling off the company and lining their pockets.

    Advice to Management

    To the current Senior Leadership in Brazil...Do us all a favor and RESIGN! You have ruined our company.

    Brazilian managers are sucks.

    Pros

    Aircraft are good, due to strict regulations!

    Cons

    Third world management, Brasília knows everything!

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat American employees, “American Assembled” and American Corporate Wellfare is the only reason why the Phenom line and now the Legacy line have any traction. New CEO and CFO working hard but their hands are tied. Third world middle management and parent company’s mumble mouth CEO are the problem. Boeing can make this company Great!

    Pros

    Family environment. Once you are in its hard to get out.

    Cons

    Not the purest meritocracy system.

    Advice to Management

    Improve promotion process. Also better distribute responsibilities, currently good employees carry a disproportionate percentage of the workload.

    Pros

    For a young guy there was tons to work on. The parts/sales department does everything manually, and it's a giant automation waiting to happen.

    Cons

    My supervisor was working on a 3 year outdated database that the couldn't event delete tables on (they didn't convert to newer versions of access). Besides low documentation on tables the department is run relatively well but with old-school approaches. Would have been cool to see some agile approaches

    Advice to Management

    Go to an agile conference you will be impressed.

    I worked at Embraer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The salary was adequate, benefits where above average ,on the job training and training course where above average , overtime available on a regular basis , and descent advancement opportunities within the company.

    Cons

    Too many Chiefs not enough Indians within this MRO , could operate more efficiently with out all the micro managing and useless Lean / Kaizen policies , needs to focus more on producing a quality product not just producing sub-part work. Lacks in attention to detail the management focuses upon budgets and schedules rather than quality and safety.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to what made this company great in the being before the outsiders came in and changed it , for just the overall greed of the bottom line and $$$. Focus on a quality product and safety and retaining your employees with bonuses and raises .
