    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Saipem for less than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to interesting projects and colleagues from around the world. Fast-paced. Some senior managers were open to learning about the Canadian work environment.

    Cons

    Much of management, with a few key exceptions, was not open to understanding how different Canadian employees and clients are from their European, African and Middle Eastern counterparts. The result was a chasm between management and employees as well as between management and their Canadian clients. Ultimately, this was catastrophic for the business as Saipem Canada lost its key clients when economic conditions... deteriorated. There was a lot of blaming about "lazy Canadians" and "difficult clients" which was unproductive. The most recent HR department leadership is incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    Adaptability is key. Canada is not the Middle East nor Africa. Employees and clients will not accept being treated as second class by anyone, even during a downturn.
