    - Salaries tend to be below market average. - Employees are oftentimes taken for granted by managers. - Highly political environment: many managers and other employees are more interested in playing a corporate version of "Game of Thrones" in order to advance their careers as opposed to actually working to promote a better business environment for the industry.

    I have been working at Sistema FIRJAN

    Pros

    Good place for those who want to have a life without challenges, if of course is not concerned about earning a high income.

    Cons

    It is a place where the policy is more important than a job or a well conducted project, unfortunately.

    Advice to Management

    Keep everything extremely well documented and do not work under any circumstances outside the processos.Se you enjoy doing politics, is in the right place.
