    I worked at Petrobras full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great experiences in engineering and large projects. Good salary. Healthy environment for professional development. It is a great place to have contact only with people with a lot of professional experience.

    Cons

    What I would advise for the company's board is to invest more in disclosure of results to employees. The goals are to put more broadly and it is not always evident the pursuit of these goals.

    Huge company with lots of burocracy. IT (Information Technology) does not drive the business, it's more like a service department. Benefits are better for those who are married and have children.
