    Pros

    Specific program (PT Trainees) for recruiting of raw university talent, independently of course.
    Great integration for new people based on periodic side activities over the first two years which are part of the program.

    Cons

    Milleage may vary at such a large company, there are many different people and job types which make each person's experience unique and not necessarily what one would expect after being accepted.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the company's focus on expanding its business model internationally even more, as Portugal is a very small market for all the big ideas that are being developed.
