    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Sonae Sierra full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can find many highly skilled and hard-working professionals within the company willing to help you improve and learn new skills.

    Cons

    Daily +8 hour work routine is not compensated through additional pay or vacation days.
    The company’s structure is quite hierarchical and there aren’t hardly any opportunities to progress in your career if you’re at the bottom of the pyramid.
    For these two reasons I can’t give more than a 'neutral' evaluation to the company’s Culture & Values and its Senior Management.

    Advice to Management

    "a happy employee is a productive employee". Efficiency and productivity can be raised by allowing workers to compensate their effort in peak times with extra time off.

    Pros

    Professionalism, great opportunity to improve skills and gain new ones, good salary and very good benefits; Good environment and great conditions to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes, quite often, actually, you need to stay long after-hours and there´s no additional payment or benefit; There isn´t much opportunities to progress in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Give more value to the employees through salary benefits or holiday hours.
