    I worked at Serpro full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is perfect. I loved to work there. Unfortunately my family had to move on to another country. If not so I probably would continue working there until my retirement.

    Cons

    As a public company we had to face politics issues sometimes.

    I worked at Serpro full-time (More than 8 years)

    It's one of the only companies in Brazil that you have the chance to work with IT all time. Work environment is a plus.

    I have been working at Serpro full-time

    Pros

    - There are some teams using new technology and new development methodologies
    - Compensation is ok
    - Flexible hours

    Cons

    Used to be a great workplace, fun to work, great culture, that cared about using free software and doing good to the society, as a government company should. But since internal politics took over it's dog eat dog. "Nice" behavior is rewarded over quality work. Management pretends to care about these problems but in practice nothing changes.

    Advice to Management

    Care about people and the culture of the company.

    I have been working at Serpro full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary a bit better than the average market
    Good healthcare plan
    Good colleagues
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Management is crazy, all of it. Most managers, in all levels, seems not know what they are doing. There's no incentive to use new technology and ideas are discarded very fast. In overall, there's no innovation, just maintain the old legacy technology.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. If you are willing to make the company great, you have to listen to your people and implement their ideas, not just the politicians.
