    The roof is low and hard to break

    Pros

    From the technical point of view is a interesting company. There is a lot of room for improvement and innovation.

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism. As I said in the headline, it's a familiar company and from a kind of people that are very closed to people that are not from their community. This kind of behavior favors people that are from their community and it's not necessary to better fit for the job. Since they try to force hierarchies to be as most as horizontal as possible, there is no much room to grow. There is also a informal hierarchy on which some very old employees have a lot of influence in decisions and internal political matters and do whatever it takes to protect their jobs when they felt threatened by it's own mistakes and from people that notes their mistakes. If you don't participate their trust group you will not have chance to grow there and not will even be listened. If you do not do a lot of lobbying it does not matter if you have the best ideas and know where the company have problems and what things the company need to do to solve them. It's very sad. It's the right place for people who love to hide problems from their bosses and protect yourselves, because there are even high employees in there that do this sort of thing.

    Great talent ruined by lack of proper management

    Pros

    Locaweb wants to feel like Google so when it comes to food, free beverages, video games and other amenities it has got it all. People are young and talented and have energy that you usually don't see in medium/large companies. Lots of people that love what they do (they offer decent pay so that might explain it). Foreign investments mean cash is not a problem.

    Cons

    Founders have promoted technical-oriented people to management and they lack the skills. The company also ignores bullies and let egos run high. Founders like to let people fight over ideas and the best one wins. Reality is whoever speaks louder or has an alpha-male attitude dictitates what happens. There is too much guess work as performance is not measured. Very informal environment that doesn't not account for wasted resources, failed projects, etc.

    Was a good company (3 years ago!)

    Pros

    - Unfortunately no pros any more.

    Cons

    - stopped growing, so instead of innovating, they are pressuring employees to make magic with existing products - CEO doesnt understand business and market, just worried about $$$ results and not to team building - Directors only worried about their personal results (and fat bonuses), not with company growth - Share holders used to manage the company, now they just want money and don't care about the future of the company - Everybody (share holders, stock holders, CEO, directors) is trying to take all the money the can out of the company, without being worry about what will happened to the company after they are able to sell it. For them, it will be great. For those who continue to work there, the day after will be awful.

    Pros

    Lots of challenges and opportunities of developing your career. The climate is great and people respect and help each other. Great benefits and really focused on investing in people and giving opportunities.

    Cons

    It started as a family company, so sometimes there aren´t polices. Everything works really good, and there is a huge effort on making the rules clear, but sometimes it takes long time to solve a problem because it's still based on people and not on process (who is the owner of the process, not the process itself)

    Pros

    A lot of technologies to work. You can argue about using a technology if it makes sense for the solution. There are many good people working there. They encourage you to speak at conferences if you want to. Remote work is possible depending on your manager.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy when it's not needed Some changes are difficult to be done because there are many political levels to talk to.
