Good coworkers but deceitful hiring practices and bad management
Product Development Engineer II (Former Employee) – Titusville, FL – July 8, 2018
As some might know already, Boeing is in the process of acquiring part of Embraer or Embraer as a whole. This has led to alot of uncertainty and the everyday operation of some divisions of the company to be virtually on hold.
I was part of the division that is basically on hold. I was initially hired to work developing a new product that never took off. That was 7 months ago. My manager never provided any type of timeline. It was as is if by not talking about it, we would forget that were wasting our time.
My skills were getting very rusty because for 7 months, there was no real engineering work or development. If you are a young engineer seeking career development and advancement, Embraer is not for you.
Embraer engaged in deceitful hiring practices. I was told that raises will be given 4 months after my start date. This was never the case and the tactic was used to persuade me to accept an unfavorable job offer. Make sure that all concessions are written in your contract.
Great matching 401k contribution, 3 weeks vacations to start.
No career advancement or development. No leadership.
