    I worked at Saipem

    Pros

    Great company for oil sector, every body hard working, capable to perform any challenging project in due time. Resourceful, excellent wages and may learn a lot from job training. Safety on top of every step. Respect multinational employees.

    Cons

    Higher management and middle management are not capable enough to merge with the procedures of North American business. Impatience practice and hire and fire attitude is a serious negative practice with the middle management of Italian staff.

    Management is good but mostly Italians. They talk in the Italian language even in the meeting. I had a good experience working for Saipem Canada and lots of opportunity to success throughout my four years of work there.

    Cons

    Management is not transparent to local employees. Sometimes local employee feels they are not part of the management.

    Pros

    Good salary, good opportunities to learn and grow, exposure to megaprojects, exposure to multinational work culture, identifies your true potential and value and appreciate your abilities and contributions as per tier 2 below.

    Cons

    There are two tiers in company: (1) Italians on top of pyramid like kings (2) Everyone else is slave. Rules are different for both tiers. An Italian will always be your boss even if they don't know anything....just because they are Italian. They take credit for everything good and blame slaves for everything bad.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Saipem for less than a year

    Pros

    They are willing to catch up with newer, smaller companies in terms of new technologies and innovation. They liked my spirit and "intrapreneurship". There are many opportunities to shine if you want to do your best.

    Cons

    Lots of work to be done; if you like it, great, but even then office politics could destroy you. People in your department will be nice and cooperating, others may just try to protect their turf and provoke unnecessary attrition instead of helping each other.
