    I worked at Saipem full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Exposure to international standards, great team, learnt a lot colleagues from all around the world. Although there are great challenges everyday, tackling them brings about a nice experience.

    Cons

    Should have better hours and better benefits, working from Monday to Sunday can be really tiring. However since the company focus on construction is difficult to do it any different

    Advice to Management

    Focus more in a better work-life balance. Make provision for off days
