      Negative Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      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
