    OK just ok

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBonus system is set up ok. Pay is ok just ok.

    ConsPay needs to be more competitive with other operators. Favoritism among Italians. Much workload stress. Management just passes the buck so to speak when it comes time go get work done. Passing work off to much lower management level people. Heatlh insurance is HORRID. Health insurance company takes forever to pay doctors who in return send you all kinds of nasty letters and bills.

    Advice to Senior Managementbetter pay better benefits.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    a true Italian oil company, having Italian culture has its own advantage\disadvantages ;)

    ICT Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsEni is a big company with lots of opportunities, the founder Enrico Mattei was a legendary man and his ideas are still in place (not as bold as before). if you have something to offer, company will make sure to appreciate it. Family, is like the ace of spades. you can play that card whenever you are in bad condition.

    ConsThere are a lot of connections inside! luckily most of the people that know each other are good to work with (even though if they are not the best at what they do, professionally wise) but there are also exceptions that can make your life miserable at work. the environment could be terribly stressful! we have demanding top management ;)with rapid changes, Don't forget Nationality matters! if you are Italian you are okay but any other nationality could face strange difficulties. HR function in general is really poor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDuring the last 10 years of working i realized that the sky is blue everywhere you go! my advice for the management would be to add a psychological test and try to get the most adaptive\flexible people in work place! during high pressure those are the ones who get things done.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good for a freshee!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsOffers good training opportunities. Learning during the initial years of one's career is ample.

    ConsNo growth opportunities! Lack of career progression for young dynamic professionals! In this day and age, Companies are offering well-defined career paths and eliminating all elements of career stagnation. This however, is not the case here...

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe slow growth concept should be completely revamped!
