    Pros

    Good projects to work on. Need to stay active in all lease sales in order to secure good work and the necessary projects/permits to move forward.

    Cons

    Way too much political fighting internally/externally. Expats need to learn how to work/manage in the US - this is not Milan.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the department managers local. You have a great base of very technically proficient employees without the constant interruption of expats who are not. Listen more to your local employees.

    Pros

    401k free parking half day Friday if you can get out but usually not. Depends on where you are working

    Cons

    Poor treatment of all employees if you are not Italian, very poor processes, horrible HR, everything is slow and they can't compete with other supermajority. Turnover is poor no one stays more than two years and very cold and unfeeling company. It is like working for the government. Salaries are not equivalent to market

    Advice to Management

    Waste of time to give advice as the company doesn't like change at all all executives are Italians and very rarely competent to do the job. They should try and care about people

    Pros

    If you're an employee there are some pros: low work load, benefits, in the summer free friday afternoon, no one will fire you unless you kill someone.

    Cons

    I work here as a consultant and I've never seen an environment like this: parasitism, bureaucracy, incompetent executives, no meritocracy at all. This is a real mirror of Italy unfortunately. There are people I can consider smart, but just few people. Without consultants this company would be dead. I'm trying to run away.

    Advice to Management

    You're there just for political connections, just for filling empty spaces.

    Pros

    Good salary, great benefits (10% 401k match), short work week (37 hrs), and lots of vacation (5 weeks).

    Cons

    Horrible management, endless bureaucracy, managers moved in and out of positions every 1-2 years. Very cold and unfeeling company. Management used a recorded video (that was delivered via email and didn’t work on half of the company computers) informing ~150 employees that the office was closing and that they might (or might not) be offered a transfer. Severance was unfair and health insurance stopped on the day you left the office. Horrible experience.

    - nothing to do

    - flat salary as you approach 2k€ a month
    - non existent HR although they have many tools to evaluate you (psicologists writing your own profile and so on)
