    I worked at Eni full-time

    Pros

    They should close as they are not equipped with the resources or knowledge to conduct business in the United States

    Cons

    They should close for the reasons stated I. The Pros. Only Pros are 10 percent 401k match free parking and half day Friday

    Advice to Management

    You are incompetent and I've literally never seen anything so poor in a major oil and gas operating company. I would expect that type of performance from a cash strapped service provider

    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.

    Pros

    Many opportunities for learning and expanding upon skill set

    Cons

    Bureaucracy can make accomplishing anything difficult, senior management rarely stays for very long

    Advice to Management

    Act upon known problems rather than ignoring them or hoping they will get better before you transfer to the next opportunity

    Pros

    There are no Pros, only work if dying else don't even think

    Cons

    Total biased with no HR Principles. Absolute trash.

    Advice to Management

    Change management style. Take out mediocrity and promote meritocracy. Stop sending stupid & inexperienced Italians as Top Managers in international subsidiaries and business units. Value your employees please.

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

    Pros

    It is a safe place. If you have been hired, this job will be yours forever if you wish. So if you want a stable job with the average pay without making any effort, this company is for you. Employment contract is indefinite and they will not fire you even if you will mess everything or do nothing. You will still remain your job and your pay, even more, there is a chance that each year your salary will increase a little. So longer you stay, higher salary you will get. And also, you will succeed if you have extremely good communication skills or you know someone from management.

    Cons

    Company is really stuck in the last century, because (see pros) it is run (HR) by unqualified people who does not even know current developments in human resources management. HR policies are not transparent. Salaries are low.

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

    Pros

    All Pros goes for you if you are Italian. You are protected if you are British. Credit/Bonus/Allowances/Promotion is given based on your nationality/race and not on your performance. it wasn't like this before.

    Cons

    British/Italian Managers can take credit and bonus for your own work. Respect of Contract terms and conditions depends on nationality. Top Managers can employ their friends and can enjoy credit of your own work. No way to complain: Any complaint will result in termination.

    Advice to Management

    They will not care and because of that each year this branch of ENI is getting worse and worse and causing huge losses to the company that is compensated by oil and gas produced from third world countries.

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

    Pros

    There is none. The only positive thing for me is leaving this Company.

    Cons

    It may be difficult to fit all of the negatives in, but here is a list of the major ones:
    - No Leadership/Management
    - Nepotism/Racism like I have never seen before - it is not uncommon for a non-Italian to be removed from a project and be told he is no longer needed anymore (excuses and lies are used), then to find out that an Italian has replaced him!!! Absolutely disgusting.
    - Feeling imprisoned in the workplace following implementation of systems from those who have served their time, plus the disaster of the office refurbishment (still ongoing after over 3 years, and the end is nowhere in sight)
    - No teamwork or utilisation of in-house experience particularly from non-Italian personnel
    - Low moral and a lack of enthusiasm due to all of the above
    - Lack of trust from senior members in the organisation (particularly those long served)
    - No flexibility whatsoever: a clock in system that is flawed, no working from home and to top it off Italian personnel turn up when they want and leave when they want (double standards!)
    - HR override decisions to show their power in the organisation and in most cases the decisions are unfair, pathetic and quite frankly unprofessional
    - No professionalism whatsoever
    - Differentiation in contracts between personnel undertaking the same role

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I can give to the management team is leave! Get some competent, professional and experienced managers in who understand the business.
