A former employee shared his experience in a review about the time he worked for Petrobras: "The company is Corrupt from Headquarters to it Subsidiaries, from Governmental officials, Presidents and Top management funneling money through projects, conventional and outdated practices of doing business. Alot of "Hanky Panky" between employees; the place is a cesspool!"
