    I worked at Eni as a contractor

    Pros

    The team i worked with was amazing, we all did what we had to do to make sure our job got done.

    Cons

    Management on the other hand sucks! . Most of my team came on at the same time and our supervisor at the time was awesome, she knew our policies and procedures just as well as we did. We transitioned to a new supervisor who knew nothing about our dept and she refused to listen to the team. She did listen to the problem child though who told her exactly how she wanted things to work,not by the procedures put in place. As a good team member i tried to tell my supervisor about some shady things being done by a certain employee and she just kept on letting her, i'm sure ENI shelled out alot of money for unnecessary Overtime. But as the saying goes "A Bad managers takes a good staff and destroys it and causes the best employees to flee and the rest to lose motivation"

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees about their concerns, they deal with the everyday of the job, most of the time if they are saying something its because its gotten to the point to where management should intervene.

    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 (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Top healthcare benefits, 10% Roth 401k regardless of contribution, relatively good pay if they value you enough for you not to leave, flexible schedule as long as you get the work done

    Cons

    They never fire anyone since it's against the corporate culture; also management often places the wrong people in middle management roles; this is harmful as the best performers suffer for it. Also the bonus structure is socialist with everyone receiving a bonus regardless of performance score. They should uphold more of an American meritocracy rewards structure and punish the underperformers.

    Advice to Management

    They should uphold more of an American meritocracy rewards structure to reward top performers and punish the underperformers.

    I worked at Eni (More than a year)

    Pros

    Bonus system is set up ok. Pay is ok just ok.

    Cons

    Pay needs to be more competitive with other operators. Favoritism among Italians. Much workload stress. Management just passes the buck so to speak when it comes time go get work done. Passing work off to much lower management level people. Heatlh insurance is HORRID. Health insurance company takes forever to pay doctors who in return send you all kinds of nasty letters and bills.

    Advice to Management

    better pay better benefits.
