    I worked at Eni

    Pros

    The Oil & Gas sector is interesting because of the high level of tecnology that sector uses.

    Cons

    Actualy I don't have valid reason. May be the downsides those tied to long shift

    Current Employee - Recruitment - Eirl in London, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Eni International Resources Ltd, London (Eirl):

    - Great team to work with overall, young, friendly and supportive despite a challenging economic backdrop and complex company structure
    - The team has made significant changes for the better over the past 12 months under new leadership and is heading in the right direction, albeit gradually
    - If you perform well, you are recognised for it and rewarded with training and development opportunities

    Cons

    - Change is slow to happen and the company can be quite process driven and political, so getting things done can be frustrating at times
    - Misconception that only Italians can progress, but if you are non-Italian and you make the effort to learn the language, you can also progress

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to address the concerns of employees and take steps to make positive changes.

    I worked at Eni

    Pros

    Friendly people (non-managerial level).

    Cons

    (EIRL):
    - There is no meritocracy, you have to be a member of the inner circle (or blond single girls ) to be promoted and successful otherwise forger about Eirl!
     - The middle managers (all Italian) are unprofessional and inexperienced, they do not like to see knowlagable people in their teams as it may reveal their own inadequacies.
    - Unprofessional and incompetent local HR team, they bully and manipulate you and that is normal in the company's culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire profrssional managers and leaders who understand the meaning of Leadership and the UK Employment Law .
    It is part of your job to stop manipulating and bullying especially if its happening in front of you, that is why you have the title.

    Former Employee - Onshore Functional Support At ELBOC in Chester, England (UK)

    I worked at Eni full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great if you are Italian looking for a job for life, if you are not then I really can't think of anything good to say about this company..

    Cons

    There is no meritocracy at all, you will not succeed unless you are Italian or you are one of the chosen few with an extremely brown nose.
    The politics, bureaucracy and internal time wasting has to be seen to be believed, very very frustrating environment where effective prioritization and leadership does not exist.
    The HR team in London can't be trusted, they will not help you with anything,
    The Italian middle management are generally inexperienced and they are literally scared of the senior managers in London / Milan, they will change your priorities on a daily basis in response to rediculous requests made by senior management in the Ivory towers...... very strange way to behave in the modern world....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some leaders, don't just fill management positions with inexperienced Italian expats.... Re-write the MSG's (Management system Guidelines) because they are quite ridiculous.... Put in place a technical career ladder that recognizes and rewards high achievers.....

    I have been working at Eni

    Pros

    I was based at the London office. Decent individuals throughout the organisation and a few very good and caring teams who are a joy to work with. Subsidised canteen but can get very crowded.

    Cons

    Eni cherishes, supports, and trains everyone from management level upwards. If you are support staff, it’s another story. A great deal of energy will be diverted into appeasing upper management and cushioning them from the bumps of real life, while absorbing all the impacts yourself. What’s the problem with that, you may ask.

    The organisation has a high level of bureaucracy hindering the effective and timely completion of tasks. Red tape and the trenchant adherence to it, strangles any lateral thinking that would get work successfully completed within tight timescales. On the other hand, not finishing on time is not an option. The result is that a lot of unsung and unsanctioned improvisation must take place in order for delivery of the work demanded by the organisation. The goal posts are constantly moving. Prepare to put on your superpower hat and employ initiative and enthusiasm, to move the earth and provide a result at short notice, only to have the request changed at the last minute. Then press repeat. The two alternatives for flagging any issues are 1) to be ignored; 2) to endanger your position by speaking up. Some managers manage upwards and crush downwards. Flexi Friday applies not democratically but according to workload.

    Lack of trust in my skills and experience meant I was micromanaged. Flexibility was demanded on a regular basis but not given (occasionally) in return. The IT department will eventually get around to helping you, at its own schedule, regardless of whether or not you have a genuine emergency while carrying out a job for your manager. If you are curious to experience a place in which problems could be said to be invented for the sake of it, then you could give Eni a try.

    If you are a manager or engineer and can turn a blind eye to how support staff are treated, then Eni UK may be a good place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your support staff properly, care about what is going on, stop taking them for granted and listen to them.

    I have been working at Eni

    Pros

    Because this was my first job, I had not means to compare it to another company. At first the experience was being very joyful because every day provided me with a new challenge. I was enriching my resume with all the assignments. I was provided with training.

    Cons

    . After the first year everything falls into routine.
    .The company does not have a structured policy for human resource development.
    .Their mentorship program has many flaws.

    Current Employee - Lead in Basingstoke, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Professional and helpful co-workers (non-managerial level, non-HR). Good office cafeteria - good quality menu at affordable price. Office is old and needing serious refurbishment which is in progress since last year. Office space after refurbishment is very decent.

    Cons

    Lack of career progression if you are not Italian. Be very very careful with the HR (EIRL). They will act like bullies and shortchange whatever that have been agreed before. Many a time, they are not lying but just not telling you the whole truth; until you are deceived, thinking that you have got much better remuneration than it actually is. When you challenge them for clarification, that's when they use their bullying tactics and bring in external 'specialists' to confuse you with the details until you give in. Low emphasis on health and safety at workplace and employees' welfare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop condoning the dishonest practice at HR (EIRL).

    Pros

    I like the mult culture environment. Build good network once you are around the world.

    Cons

    Improvement in the system is required for a company size as big as eni. Things was done in a very manual way.
