    Cons

    if you are expatriate, the rotation are bit long, very difficult to get a familly contract, only single, salary in expatriation are not so high compare of number of hour that you spend!!
    HR Dpt is a real disaster, no communication, you are just a number; Italian management can be difficult for you if you are not italian too....

    Pros

    I actually really like the people in my department, and the managers I work for.

    Cons

    I simply don't earn enough. What's more frustrating is that other project secretaries and administrative assistants in the company make more than me, with the same job title.

    Advice to Management

    Please give people a fair salary. Give them something they can support their families, and pay their bills with! What I earn is ridiculous. I've heard from several other people that HR will try to low ball you as much as they can. I would have negotiated my salary when I was offered the job, if I had known I had that option.
