Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

No opinion of CEO

Pros

Bonus, Benefits (excluding 401K matching) and sick leave, and an excellent place to gain Operator's experience

Cons

NO room for advancement in the Company - especially if you do not connected and don't speak Portuguese! Job can be overly demanding at times. No retirement benefits, Lately, Communication and Transparency between upper Management and Employees are quickly fading away (FAST). Career Planning does NOT exist!

Advice to Management

Work will NOT be done without employees! You CANNOT depend 100% on contractors to keep your business up, as well as maintain it profitable and growing! Need to invest in a reliable capable core team and ensure you keep them content, included, and involved. Also, need to ensure your employees are allowed to grow and enhance their careers by investing in them, promote them, and provide opportunities…..

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits is the only pro that I seen. I guess the relaxed dress code is good if you haven't researched the fact that this leads to a relaxed work ethic in your personnel.

    Cons

    Everything besides benefits: no procedures, no training, incompetent managers, outdated use of technology, SAP implementation but no one uses it they'll prefer to use spreadsheets that no one understands except the developer, only Brazilians are in management, etc etc etc

    Advice to Management

    This is America & when you hire American employees they generally bring more to the table besides Petrobras thinking which is very unethical and won't lead to efficiency here. If you want to run a company led strictly by Brazilians, only take advice from Brazilians, and assume only Brazilians are competent then stay in Brazil --- don't diversify to other countries.
