    I have been working at Tenneco full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Used to have good benefits and pay but years of no raises and benefit cost increase and cuts have killed that i guess if you want to live at work thats a plus

    Cons

    now have more people in offices than on the floor safety first as long as its free and convieniant too many people creating problems to justify their jobs zero accountability beyond floor level low pay by industry standard {they only compare themselves to other ten plants NOT the area industry} no raise in 6 years ins has gone up 3 times no support from management if you aren't in an office you are a scape goat

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none t/a elkhart has evolved into a direct suckup line all the way to the ceo

    I worked at Tenneco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learned a lot. Took on a lot of responsibility. First 2 years were fun. Worked with a lot of very talented people-on all levels, in all areas. Got a better job as a result.

    Cons

    Next 3 years were a nightmare. Everyone wanted to be a buyer, engineers, the plants, the salespeople. Vendor payments were delayed to help cash-flow, a practice that has been stopped. They break contracts. Pay was bad, as were the benefits. Plants routinely ran short on inventory and blamed vendor. Managers had no experience managing in most areas. Women were especially treated poorly-no matter their title. To many 'Indians' with little to-no authority, 'Chiefs' didn't like to get hands dirty, and wanted to protect their job. Very political environment. Senior Executive quoted prior to a meeting, "Check your ethics at the door", and another classic, "Sometimes you have to take the low road' In some areas morale was great, in others well pretty bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider training managers. Let some of the old chiefs retire. Promote from within. Executives should go undercover within the company-in any area to see how the work really gets done and dirty some people operate. Treat the women as your would your wife or daughter treated at a job.
