    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

    Standard System administration task load.

    Systems Administrator (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsInteresting 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.

    ConsGetting 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 Senior ManagementWork to move initiatives forward into production.

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

    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.
