        I worked at Saipem America full-time

        Pros

        Flexible Scheldule, good balance, good co worker, some honest hard working people there.

        Cons

        Cut hours, no communication, favoritism. No one takes responsibility, letting go of the wrong people.

        Advice to Management

        They need to stop hiring their friends and pay more attention to the people that actually wanted to work there from the beginning instead of sticking up for their "people" and letting everyone else take the fault when things go wrong. Also, the expats walk on water in there and they need to be brought down to reality.
