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

    Pros

    Solid company, well-built, strong infrastructure with a long global history. Eni US is a small regional company affiliate to the much much larger Eni SPA. Working within this small affiliate can provide some visibility to the interrelations and interactions between the individual disciplines and departments of an energy company.

    Cons

    eni is glass ceiling (not a glass door) for career advancement. Draconian and unprofessional method in performing staff reductions to the point where eni's front-line and even some senior managers does not know if their own direct and down line reports have been laid of or not until the very day before the lay-off.

    I have been working at Eni full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good location, great benefits. Generally a great group of fellow employees. Depending on your manager you can have a lot of flexibility in working hours.

    Cons

    Difficult to be promoted because of rotating Italian management. Company deadlines are either strongly enforced or ignored - it makes for interesting scheduling.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, modern office in a very good location, nine/eighty schedule is flexible and convenient, parking provided to full time employees.

    Cons

    Less transparent HR than many competitors (especially regarding salary adjustments and promotions), very contractor heavy workforce leads to uncertainty in job security, lack of travel and training opportunities for those in affiliate locations like Houston.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more regarding salary and bonus structure and reasoning. Allow more affiliate and local personnel to travel and train for more career advancement.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic medical benefits and 401K matching

    Cons

    As mentioned before, all upper level management rotates in every 2 years, so plan to reteach your job to a new boss every 2 years. No upward mobility if you aren't Italian. No training within the company. HR is transparent and doesn't give two bits about its people. They don't abide by any kind of good faith privacy policy, so any problem you have and mention to them, look forward to everyone knowing you went and what you complained about. The gossip and rumour mills are strong here.
    You don't see job postings because 85% of the workforce are CONTRACTORS. Red flag! They don't want to hire full time people. Their strategy is to keep overhead to a minimum by using contractors and demanding every minute of every hour of each of them and working them to the bone.
    They will sell you on "37.5 hour work weeks" - LIES. Look forward to being micromanaged to the minute of a 42 (yes, forty-TWO) hour work week. No work at home policy, but it's expected that you work during off-hours regardless. No work-life balance at all. No flexibility if you have a significant other, family or LIFE outside of the office. Kid's game? Forget that. You'll never see another one again, unless it's on a weekend. You need to go to the dentist? Plan to use a full sick day to go. You get a "half day" Friday (6 hours instead of 9) but you don't get "half days" of vacation or sick time off, so plan to lose some vacation and sick time. Don't let anyone here tell you they aren't "face time" people because that's all it is.
    Go here to get a pay check while you find your other real job elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are people too, whether contractor or full-time. Don't cut off your nose to spite your face.
