      Positive Outlook

      I have been working at Grupo Globo full-time for more than 20 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

      Positive Outlook

      I worked at Grupo Globo 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.

      Current Employee - Software Developer in Rio de Janeiro

      I have been working at Grupo Globo

      Pros

      A big company, stable and with average salaries. Not as good as many people think, but mostly an average place.

      Cons

      Unprofessionalism, lack of focus, lack of respect for people. Autistic management, competition within groups and lack of cooperation with other companies under the same group.

      Advice to Management

      Use some common sense. Learn that there is a world out there, and that inertia alone is not going to work forever. Look at the competition and see how they are leaps ahead of us. Stop being so proud of what was earned mostly from inheritance instead of own merit.
