This study aimed at investigating the relationship between the adoption of practices of career management by companies, operating in the domestic market, and the perception by its employees, both executives and non-executives, about their chances of career growth at their current job. To that end, 550 companies were surveyed and the results were calculated using descriptive statistics and a Probit model. A greater impact was noted of career management practices on the perception by non-executives. As to the executives, probably because they had developed their skills more fully than the non-executives, perceived their opportunities of career growth in a less dependent way on the company where they work.
