    Pros

    exciting projects involving new technology, celebrated diversity of national and cultural backgrounds in office

    Cons

    observed gender discrimination against women. lack of accountability in leadership toward their teams. futile ethics violations reporting process. observed favoritism and hiring of personal friends and family members (nepotism). observed anger management issues amoung managers (yelling, cursing at employees). lack of hourly pay (this amounts to unpaid overtime in salaried positions). observed under-paying of qualified new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your ethics violations reporting process - observed lack of confidentiality caused several employees to suffer retaliation and alienation. This would resolve many of the other problems if fixed.

    I worked at Embraer full-time

    Pros

    Better than unemployment, maybe. There are some good people there. Free coffee. The Brazilians are great. Benefits are great for single people.

    Cons

    Automotive industry taking over. Boys club, buddy system in full force at this place. Highly discriminating environment. The less education and less experience you have the farther you will go here. They do not want you to see job titles, and will not give you job descriptions. Very hush hush to cover up how they treat people that have experience or education. Manager is trying to push out Brazil and take over with automotive industry. IT (I. T.) is a joke. No established HR department. You simply can not trust anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your hiring manager before losing the rest of your valuable employees.

    I worked at Embraer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Embraer makes high quality aircraft and is a good company overall. Melbourne manufacturing plant is well organized and appears to be a good place to work.

    Cons

    People blaming problems on it being a start up company (meaning Eng department). Lack of processes, leadership, and teamwork. Not organized.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some experts. Give people the tools they need to do their jobs.

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

    Pros

    Not many. It's in Florida if you like beaches. Nice building. Beyond that, I can't give it a plus at all.

    Cons

    Management is way over their head. No clue how to run an Engineering team. Anyone with any kind of experience has left or looking to leave. Those that don't have much experience are only sticking around long enough to get some experience before they leave. You won't be utilized for your experience since management doesn't pay any attention to your resume. They have their own agenda and that's to surround themselves with people who love the word yes. You'll know who management is by their heads bobbing up and down in the front row in any meeting which includes the Brazillians or Leadership. Watch out for HR too. Everyone knows who the good are and the bad. The good work for you, the others are self serving and nothing you say is confidential. When you look at the reviews listed for this company, I can see HR and Management all through the positive reviews. I can tell you that none of the regular employees would say positive things like that. When most of us interviewed, we were told fabrications and lies about bonus numbers, job titles and responsibilities. Don't expect anything said to you to come to reality. The sad thing is, this could have been good. Instead, I'll be suprized if the Brazillians don't wrap up and head home as soon as the Florida Tax money runs out.

    Advice to Management

    Take some classes or go work somewhere else where you won't destroy the young kids your supposed to be mentoring.

    Pros

    Good work environment, good co-workers and good benefits

    Cons

    Many good people left... boys club, buddy system established and not a chance to get fairly promoted. Career development is an illusion. Upper management is not aware of mid-management practices, this goes against company culture and motivates people to leave

    Advice to Management

    Management cannot outsmart all the smart people they have around them. Be fair to your employees, don't fool them... you should encourage the bests to stay... to many are gone already...

    Pros

    Decent benefits, average compensation package

    Cons

    Insular management structure, CEO with poor vision, promotions are a popularity contest and if your're nor Brazilian I hope you like glass ceilings.

    Advice to Management

    It's not really useful to give advice to people that are not interested in it; and the people at Embraer are not at all interested in anything their employees have to say. If they did listen I wouldn't know where to begin when it comes to the non merit based promotion system, sniping and back stabbing that goes on in this company.

    Pros

    Proximity to the beach. Cool product. Modern facilities.

    Cons

    Long hours. Lack of empowerment to local leadership. Micromanaging from corporate office 4000 miles away. Lack of understanding of regulatory and business practices in locations where they have major operations. Unethical behavior is a problem throughout the company, especially at high levels.

    Advice to Management

    Empower local leadership. Respect and value the experiences and ideas of others. Value integrity. Decentralize control. Embrace more modern management styles.
