    Unfortunately the systems in place are highly inefficient and time consuming.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade to world class systems for better efficiency

    I have been working at Enel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice new office, free coffee, summer hours, decent tele-commuting policy if your boss supports that.
    Seems to be a good group of people that work there, people passionate about renewable energy and trying to make a difference.

    Cons

    Very old-fashioned recruiting, very slow and disorganized hiring process, lack of onboarding, matrix style reporting relationships and Enel's Global policies cripple North American operations with their complexity and lack of applicability in the US. Seems to be an overabundance of people in Engineering & Construction and not in the departments that ultimately end up with an operational site (Operation & Maintenance, Safety, Procurement)
    Very outdated policies on vacation / sick / PTO / Maternity.
    Very limited job potential as many positions are magically filled with Italian people from HQ who are trying to progress in their careers, limiting mobility within, even laterally.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. You are losing good people, and will continue to lose more.

    I worked at Enel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    they produce a product you can believe in, and benefits are good

    Cons

    they demand excessive work hours and offer reasonable pay but then when you meet the criteria, they continue to demand more and more without offering the extra compensation

    Advice to Management

    Add more workers to the actual working crew and not just more managers so that the valuable few there aren't driven away because its just not worth it any longer. the managers make the most money but don't do any of the work. the workers stress themselves out trying to meet deadlines but aren't adequately compensated for their efforts
