    I worked at BTG Pactual full-time

    Pros

    Full of opportunities; if you perform and the right people see you, you get the recognition; internal mobility; highly enthusiastic and dynamic environment

    Cons

    politics are really bad; meritocracy does not fall a completely fair process (specially for operations); people sometimes take credit for your work; it is not a organised and professional environment.

    Advice to Management

    Show commitment to a more professional approach to processes, systems and controls; make sure you value the operations teams highly as they are the ones holding the very fragile structure together.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at BTG Pactual full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy and generally a meritocratic culture where compensation can be competitive.

    Cons

    Senior management/partners have completely lost the plot post founder's arrest. They have become incredibly short-sighted and are basically "kicking" people on the way out. Commitments are not being honored which is a real shame and could create serious legal issues for the firm. It is a shame for the people and their families that are being screwed. It is also a shame for the institution as it will ultimately be...

    Advice to Management

    You may be in a crisis but you should think long term and treat people fairly. This is a people business. Without people you have no business.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at BTG Pactual full-time

    Pros

    slightly less siloed than working for a larger bank in your day to day tasks.

    Cons

    Very poor management and partnership structure and slow to make decisions. A very unsecure business and would not recommend to anybody looking for a long term career.

    Advice to Management

    Make quicker and more effective decisions and maybe the collateral damage from the mess in November could have been reduced.
