    Guaranteed yearly progression High paying sector Low expectations on you Some truly nice poeple... can be found around at lunch time Some very friendly colleagues

    Cons

    Incompetent middle management, unable to manage their own workload and, consequently, that of the team Dishonest people with little/no integrity Typical italian mentally of favouring friends and friends of friends Incompetent hiring managers Rigid structure: There are about 5 careers stages, meaning, after the fifth year people leave for lack of opportunity Sexist work place - this is London and is 2020, keep the peace

    Pros

    Some of the people try their best unfortunately then get treated like crap

    Cons

    The company management s run by white make Italian clones from the ENI Milan office. One clone goes and gets replaced by teh same clone. No diversity at all. career is define by who know who and who hasn't stabbed who in the back. They are all frightened of each other and ruining their career no decisions are ever made that make sense. Its the most crazy company to work for. NO transparency, Italian staff can come and go whatever hours they please but non Italians are hammered for not working hard enough (despite putting in 12 hour days to cover over the cracks that appear). As for my boss, he was mr non stick. Bullying, linked to fraud, lazy, abusive etc etc yet what ever compliant you made you were made out to be the trouble maker. As for whistle-blowing all they did was send the files to the person you complained about.

  5. "Bad place to work if you are young, commercially minded, want to grow, and add value."

    I have been working at Eni full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Eni Trading & Shipping (ETS) trades a range of products: gas, power, emissions, LNG, crude, and refined product. Combined with a flat structure you can learn a lot about the oil and gas industry e.g. business strategies, products, hedging etc.

    Cons

    Obscene amount of nepotism and corruption at the very top. The company is obsessed with controls, but is perfectly happy to bypass these when it suits the interests of senior management. ETS is not commercially minded at all, instead is rather a "jolly" for Italians on an expat package to enjoy the bright lights of London. Management are happy to focus on pointless data projects that go no where, discussing things in circles with zero accountability, as it makes it look like they are putting in place "controls". ETS is not really even a trading company, it is a supply company, trying to optimise some of Eni's assets. The company has no profit incentives, and will gladly throw money down the toilet under the misguided orders of senior management who are underqualified, and, or, without relevant experience, just to follow "process" with no thought to changing processes or controls to support the business within acceptable risk appetite. No concept of profit and loss and instead focused on compliance and controls that give the appearance that all is alright, rather than addressing the root causes of endemic impunity and corruption that brought the company two publicly humiliating scandals. Management are not interested in ensuring a viable, sustainable, and profitable company that can survive in the long-term, instead they just want to enrich themselves until their term is up, to be replaced by someone from the head office in Milan who does the same.

    I worked at Eni full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None of which I can think of They claim it's a flexible work environment cos you can get Friday afternoon off if you work the hours for the rest of the week, but when they need you to work the weekends, they will only give a very short notice, and expect you to cancel all the weekend plans.

    Cons

    The management structure is so convoluted. Typical Italian management, 80% managers are incompetent. They will not look after the interest of thier employees but thier own. HR here is a joke, no one really knows how to do thier jobs. If you're not Italian, your career is pretty much nonexistent. Stay away!!

    Pros

    As an international expat, if you negotiate well, you can achieve an excellent salary and relocation package.

    Cons

    There is no career path, or respect, for non-Italians. Eni is a complex, massive organisation. It is filled with some excellent, really intelligent individuals. Unfortunately, the majority are useless. Management is conducted through intimidation and threats. There is no transparency, people are treated differently depending on their nationality, how well connected they are to management, and immorality is de-rigueur. Your productivity is irrelevant, so you may get a bonus, or may be forgotten - depending on how the wind blows (there is no tangible subjectivity or consequence to performance). Conversations are held in a downward one-way fashion: take it or leave it. The best time to join Eni as an expat (international employee via EIRL) is when they are busy; HR is disorganised and overworked, pandering to the whims of multiple entities, organisations and competing factions. If you are lucky you can get a few years on great money with no real responsibility, autonomy, authority or attention. Enter with no expectations apart from dutifully receiving your salary.
