      Pros

      - Good and knowledgeable colleagues - Reputable in the industry - Interesting projects and other aspects of work - Generally slightly better pay than industry and more generous overall benefits package

      Cons

      - It's an italian company for italians. If you have high ambitions for your career and eventually want to be a part of senior management it's gonna be tough. - No yearly feedback or objectives setting. Employee evaluation exists only on paper in HR, in reality (at least in my team) you get zero feedback or any sort of talks about your career and future at Saipem - Generally the culture isn't that great, mainly due to senior management - I find that feedback is never taken into consideration

      Pros

      Very few valid people even though the best ones already left the company

      Cons

      Forget about your career here. Either you know somebody/you are friend with/a relative was /is an executive manager/your boss likes you or your career ends the day you enter here. Typical Italian company where 90 / 95% of the executives are in that position because of the reasons given above (friend with, relative of, lover of etc etc). One of the comments about one of the fresh new executive managers was: A person who made of ambushing her reason of life...what was the result? EXECUTIVE MANAGER...STAY AWAY!
