    I worked at Eni for more than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Pay 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 ManagementAdvice

    better pay better benefits.

    Pros

    Many opportunities for exciting work in countries and projects all around the world. There is a very diverse workforce and you will get to know many different styles of working.

    Cons

    Need the right internal connections others you will not progress far; the most important things are exchanged in Italian - if you know the language you will have access to the critical infos.

    I have been working at Eni full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Eni 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    During 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.

    I worked at Eni

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    The slow growth concept should be completely revamped!
