    Pros

    Company where they can be made international experiences. It 's the most important Italian company

    Cons

    Italian mentality, politics decides the growth of managers. Too much bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    Should be more thin the difference in pay between the manager and the minor figures

    Pros

    The chance to travel the world, work on exciting projects, and experience new cultures.

    Cons

    Working with outside contractors can be difficult if they don't adhere to ENI policies. Rules of conduct concerning on how to work with non-ENI entities are lacking.

    Advice to Management

    They are several companies that are part of ENI. It would be nice to have a greater integration with all of those companies. It would make it easier to communicate across each of these companies.

    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 Management

    better pay better benefits.

  6. Standard System administration task load.

    Pros

    Interesting environment. The company is a multi-national, a subsidiary of Eni, which is the former Agip - the Italian national oil company. As such the culture there is different from most American companies, the Italian culture bleeds through to this American subsidiary.

    Cons

    Getting initiatives off the ground is very difficult. There is alot of wait and see. Often no one wants to be the decision maker.

    Advice to Management

    Work to move initiatives forward into production.

    Pros

    If 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.

    Cons

    I 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 Management

    You're there just for political connections, just for filling empty spaces.

    Pros

    Many opportunities for learning and expanding upon skill set

    Cons

    Bureaucracy can make accomplishing anything difficult, senior management rarely stays for very long

    Advice to Management

    Act upon known problems rather than ignoring them or hoping they will get better before you transfer to the next opportunity

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Horrible 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.
