    I have been working at Grupo Globo full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Grupo Globo full-time for more than 8 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.
