    Pros

    You will work with great people, build high demanding applications.

    Cons

    Too many burocracies, grow inside the company takes ages.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful to the team you will enter, there are many areas, a few of them have very bad managers, so people there use to leave. Try to talk to a current or former employee before accepting an offer.

      I have been working at Globo.com full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Some great managers, that really worry about people working happy. Some very good developers to work with, great knowledge passing. Good benefits compared with other Brazilian software companies. They send you to conferences, national and international, but the budget gets lower every year.

      Cons

      Almost every pro depend on the area/manager you work in/with. There's not a well defined career planning, recognition also depends on area/manager. Some areas/managers can be tricky to work in. Hard clients (Globo products).

      Advice to Management

      Try to focus more on recognizing the talents you have and growing people inside instead of searching for "stars" outside the company. Also look for people that make a lot more money than others doing the same job, I've seen junior developers contributing the same amount to a team/product as a "senior". Needless to say that something is wrong.

      Pros

      It has amazing developers and people willing to teach you anything.

      Cons

      It's too expensive to live in Rio and the company won't pay you well enough. Unless you're a manager or something like this.

      Advice to Management

      Pay people what they deserve and avoid over planning stuff. And throw some management away.

      Doesn't Recommend

      I worked at Globo.com full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Use this company to learn and prepare yourself for real life

      Cons

      You will not earn what you deserve. There is no meritocracy only politics. It doesn't care if you did your best. You will not succeed, there is no career plan, just a poor political management style. Stay away from this company if you want to make a career. For interns and juniors developers is the best, after 3 years get out! Actually the company is just admitting people from smaller cities in Brazil just to pay lower...

      I worked at Globo.com full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Globo is an amazing place for engineers. They use all the buzzwords about agile practices that you can imagine for real in a day to day work. Full of very talented people with a CEO that really can sit on your desk to discuss the future of the product you're working on. A few places where a junior developer can stand in front of really senior one tell him he's wrong.

      Cons

      As any big company there's a lot of politics that hit the more senior people much more than new hires. As the industry in Rio is so small, there's a lot of really senior developers that goes onto management almost as a retirement. moving up in the ladder can be really difficult as really few people graduate from the company.

      Advice to Management

      Stay away from day to day, let developers do their work. Pay more attention to UX people's needs.
