    I worked at Grupo Globo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easygoing environment. Nice and smart people to work with.

    Many levels of hierarchy. Too many managers. Not much power on decisions over the hands of software developers.

    Advice to Management

    Go out the way and let people do their best.

    I have been working at Grupo Globo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A empresa tem grandes profissionais e uma cultura de que um deve aprender com o outro bastante estabelecida. A empresa investe nos funcionários, então é muito comum a empresa nos mandar para cursos, workshops e congressos pelo mundo. Os projetos são bastante desafiadores tanto do ponto de vista de UX, quanto do ponto de vista estratégico e político. Sem dúvidas que é uma grande escola de incríveis profissionais.

    Cons

    Difícil de crescer e aumentar salário, o acompanhamento da gerência não é bom. Muitas pessoas pra tomar decisões em um mesmo produto, o que muitas vezes deixa o processo lento. Muitas reuniões que não levam a nada e muita coisa concentrada no CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Confiar mais nos profissionais que tem e evoluir para uma cultura real de aprendizado com testes rápidos.

    I have been working at Grupo Globo full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you know how to show your job you get recognised. Flexible schedule. Big company on web. Freedom to try new technologies.

    Cons

    You must show your job. Just doing it is not enough to be recognised. Not so much result oriented

    I worked at Grupo Globo for less than a year

    Pros

    People, Process (scrum, lean, agile), Technology, Products and UX Teams

    Cons

    Managers and the strong feeling of being always in a political move (as all Globo.com clients are from TV Globo (same organization))

    Advice to Management

    You shouldn't put your best tech employees to manage people. Is not because they are great with process and IT that they will be great leaders as well.

    Pros

    Awesome place to work, with great investments on people.

    Cons

    The decentralized model (which I like) makes the company look like it has many companies inside it, and you may be lucky to work in the light side of the company, or maybe you're out of lucky and go straight to the dark side it :-(

    Advice to Management

    Improve the exchange of information between different teams inside the company, to make management more uniform, while keeping the decentralized model.
