Pros
Cons

  • You may just have to look elsewhere for career progression (in 10 reviews)

    I worked at Eni (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I wish I had something good to say.

    Cons

    No support at ALL with a Manager in a different state. No time to prove yourself. They shouldn't have hired me based on my linkedin profile picture---I've never sold oil and lubricants before. Everyone told me it takes at least a year and a half to get established. They didn't give me OR the New York Rep any time at all.

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

    Pros

    Good projects to work on. Need to stay active in all lease sales in order to secure good work and the necessary projects/permits to move forward.

    Cons

    Way too much political fighting internally/externally. Expats need to learn how to work/manage in the US - this is not Milan.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the department managers local. You have a great base of very technically proficient employees without the constant interruption of expats who are not. Listen more to your local employees.

    I have been working at Eni full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If 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.

    Cons

    I 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 Management

    You're there just for political connections, just for filling empty spaces.

    Pros

    Good salary, great benefits (10% 401k match), short work week (37 hrs), and lots of vacation (5 weeks).

    Cons

    Horrible 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.
