    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    My supervisor was working on a 3 year outdated database that the couldn't event delete tables on (they didn't convert to newer versions of access).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 .
