Current Employee - Supply Chain Program Manager in Barueri (Brazil)
Current Employee - Supply Chain Program Manager in Barueri (Brazil)
Approves of CEO

Pros

Work/ life flexibility
Open door policy
Little politics
Fairness in performance reviews
Friendly atmosphere
International exposure
Great possibilities for lateral movements
Other than Workforce Reduction programs, job safety is high

Cons

Slow career progression, or no progression at all.
Manager and directors don't move up too often, nor do they leave the company. Senior individual contributors seeking management positions keep "hitting the ceiling", and eventually leave the company.

Advice to Management

Find and fire the ones leaking strategic decisions to the press
In the next reorgs, prioritize compulsory retirement programs over workforce reduction, lo open room for senior Individual Contributors to become fresh, high motivated managers
Somehow increase uopwards mobility

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits are ok and the salary is ok.

    Cons

    The people who get promoted to management are not the ones who are capable of being good at it, but those who want it the most. Which is always bad.

    Advice to Management

    PICK A STRATEGY AND STICK WITH IT. YOU ARE DESTROYING A HUGE SUCCESSFUL COMPANY.
