      I have been working at Grupo Globo full-time

      Pros

      Excellent technology choice, and great opportunity to learn with one of the most accessed websites in Brazil. Also it has a good office location and nice benefits

      Cons

      Too much hierarchy, not agile at all and some teams work with high pressure . Usually we don’t have much choice on where the product roadmap leads us

      Advice to Management

      Give more ownership to the teams

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

      Pros

      globo.com is an awesome company to work in the latest technologies - Huge number of DAU - Great products to work with - Usage of the most updated technologies

      Cons

      - Too much hierarchy - No AGILE at all, it is more like a software house company - The company is too much segmented, you don't have any kind of relation with the marketing team for instance - Product Owners act like they are managers and not part of the team

      Advice to Management

      Less hierarchy and more independent teams based on the products, let people own and feel that the product is actually theirs, that will make them work with love and based on data it will make the company be even better

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

      Pros

      Great collaborative environment. Talented, nice people. Freedom to innovate and experiment. Encouraged to make it work or fail fast. Competitive salary and benefits. No dress code, allowed to wear T's, shorts and sandals.

      Cons

      Communication between stakeholders and management doesn't flow very well and sometimes generates software that does not meet all business requirements.

      Advice to Management

      Management could be renovated, recycled and reduced.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Grupo Globo

      Pros

      - Huge technical challenges - Amazing developers - Really good work/life balance If you are a junior, it's the best place to work. You will evolve fast and get up to the speed very quick.

      Cons

      - Management - Politics (a lot.) - No gratitude/acknowledgement for the achievements. Managers will take them from you.

      Advice to Management

      I don't really want to write something here, it will never be considered by the board.

      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.

      I worked at Grupo Globo full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Challenging problems to solve. Good technical level of the team. Build things that millions of people will use. Great work environment. Budget for international conferences

      Cons

      To many politics and waste of time. You do a lot of stuff that will never be used. The traffic to get to the office. Bonus based on an evaluation with no clear definitions. The TV branch company has to much power inside the web company. Salaries bellow the average. Budget for international conferences always getting smaller.
