      Advice to Management

      Spend more time engaging with team members instead of listening to people who manage upwards very well Understand the HR environment in Australia Open Communication and Build Trust, Respect and a Healthy Team Culture No proper salary benchmarking and industry research, No set KPIs, salary increases are tied to arbitrary performance reviews by managers No training

      Neutral Outlook

      I worked at Saipem full-time

      Pros

      Good experience for my CV

      Cons

      Project Manager had no experience in that kind of role before and was a bully. No respect for landholders' properties that the project traversed. REALLY old school in terms of "get it in the ground, nothing else matters" mentality.

      Advice to Management

      Advice for management back in Italy: have a serious look at who you put in senior roles on large projects. Do they have the maturity, skills and experience to complete the project? Also keep an eye on them during the project and how much money they are spending on wasteful items.
