Approves of CEO

I have been working at Petrobras full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

It has good stability and most of the IT offices are on center (near).

Cons

Not aware of I.T changes and its Innovations. The process is very bureaucratic.

Advice to Management

Stop insisting on hiring external software factoring model, No good software have ever came from it. The highest cost if software is on changes, worst software has greater costs.
Most important of all. Stop saying IT is not our main business because IT is the Main Business of the I.T Area. Google is also a "non IT main business company".

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

    Pros

    Stability- It is very hard to get fired.

    Cons

    worst managers ever, low salary, no recognition for merit, has to be "in the know" to get a management position. Incompetent people get the same bonuses as you get. Very hard to transfer between areas, even for a better position.

    Advice to Management

    Improve HR Policies, specially regarding employee transfer between areas. Distribute people where there is work, and finish areas where people have no work to do. Improve recognition of merit.
