    The mirror of Italy...

    Knowledge Management Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsIf 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.

    ConsI 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 Senior ManagementYou're there just for political connections, just for filling empty spaces.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Honestly it was the worst experience of my life.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

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

    ConsHorrible 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    eirl : No meritocracy

    Eirl (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsFriendly and supportive people
    I worked there for almost 1 year. eirl - London office

    ConsNo meritocracy at all, Successful company but unprofessional management team, the development path is only available for Italian or blond girls age between 20-30. Unfair and inefficient local recruitment, high level of Micromanagement and unprofessional managers, if you voice up your idea you might get fired. - eirl -London office

    Advice to Senior ManagementReduce the level of micromanagement, select employees and promote them based on skills and knowledge rather than nationality and gender.
    Value your employees, and retain talents - eirl

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Frustrating

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros-Solid financial company, possible opportunities in various projects around the world, multi-ethical environment, good work - life balance.

    ConsUnprofessional management, no training, no career opportunity unless you are Italian, worst HR I have ever seen, politically motivated, advancement only on political connections, disorganized, non transparent towards employee evaluation and processes in general, does not have long term planning, average salary is lower than competition, personal issues are not considered, feel the hate against foreigners(non Italians), no standardization (no lesson learned, every time a project starts from scratch, messy) and I emphasize: the worst managers I have ever came across in my professional life!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview your internal policy, implement meritocracy and get rid of all your managers and start again.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Bureaucratic, slow, inefficient

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsQuite good salaries if compared to the Italian job market.
    Good work/life balance.

    ConsHR dept sucks. Entry-level is basically the same for young brillant engineers and 19yo employees with neither certifications or diplomas.
    Compensations and promotions are not based on what you know but on WHO you know. Salaries are under the Oil&Gas industry standards.
    Offices are overstaffed which results into bureaucracy, slowness and inefficeincies.

    If you feel like you are a talented person dont join eni! This is a company for avarage people with strong connections.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease meritocracy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Project Interface Engineer (Current Employee) Milan (Italy)

    ProsBig multinational with possibility to be relocated.

    Management focused on finance, people are neglected, objectives are misaligned.
    Huge number of silos.
    Decision making process is extremely slow.
    Frequent frustration.
    Company promises things that never honors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTurnaround or you'll clash against a wall soon...

    Working for ENI

    Senior Reservoir Engineer (Former Employee) Milan (Italy)

    ProsFlexible and tolerant management
    Pay adequately international employees

    Cons- Disorganized
    - Not internationally opened, it is mostly an Italian company with little opportunities to grow for foreigners.
    - It is not acting like an IOC but more like a public company. Local employees look like government employees
    - People are stressed and not necessarily efficient
    - There is no clear process in place to conduct business.
    - Human resource management is non existent and not transparent even if it exists

    Advice to Senior Management- Clearly defined job description and objectives to employees
    - Implement and enforce a process for oilfiedl project management
    - Properly train managers both technically and in soft skills
    - Enforce english skills in order to operate in the oil industry
