One of the more prevalent skills at Embraer is Product Development, with just over one in five considering it a key competency.

Benefits and Perks

The company is somewhat lacking in the benefits department, and only one in eight respondents report compensation for sick days and vacation time. For employees looking to save up for their golden years, Embraer provides an optional 401(k) plan, and a large number of respondents participate. The vast majority of respondents report having health insurance, and a solid majority of workers report having dental coverage. Embraer folks also make good use of a casual working environment, a company cell phone, life insurance, and relocation expenses.
