    I have been working at Eni (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Top healthcare benefits, 10% Roth 401k regardless of contribution, relatively good pay if they value you enough for you not to leave, flexible schedule as long as you get the work done

    Cons

    They never fire anyone since it's against the corporate culture; also management often places the wrong people in middle management roles; this is harmful as the best performers suffer for it. Also the bonus structure is socialist with everyone receiving a bonus regardless of performance score. They should uphold more of an American meritocracy rewards structure and punish the underperformers.

    Advice to Management

    They should uphold more of an American meritocracy rewards structure to reward top performers and punish the underperformers.

    I worked at Eni full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good projects to work on. Need to stay active in all lease sales in order to secure good work and the necessary projects/permits to move forward.

    Cons

    Way too much political fighting internally/externally. Expats need to learn how to work/manage in the US - this is not Milan.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the department managers local. You have a great base of very technically proficient employees without the constant interruption of expats who are not. Listen more to your local employees.

    I have been working at Eni full-time

    Pros

    401k free parking half day Friday if you can get out but usually not. Depends on where you are working

    Cons

    Poor treatment of all employees if you are not Italian, very poor processes, horrible HR, everything is slow and they can't compete with other supermajority. Turnover is poor no one stays more than two years and very cold and unfeeling company. It is like working for the government. Salaries are not equivalent to market

    Advice to Management

    Waste of time to give advice as the company doesn't like change at all all executives are Italians and very rarely competent to do the job. They should try and care about people

    Create more efficient procedures to cut down on the time that is wasted having to work within the procedures

    Everyone is working together for the success of the company. Everyone puts in a little extra to make it work.

    Cons

    Sometimes personalities and silos get in the way, but the general emphasis is - lets do it right. many of the positions are kept as contract positions.

    Pros

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

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

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

    I have been working at Eni full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Eni (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 Management

    better pay better benefits.
