    Pros

    Exiros is the procurement arm of the Techint Group, a large multinational engineering company in the oil & gas sector. Exiros is owned 50/50 by Tenaris and sister company Ternium, incorporated in Luxemborg, and functionally based in Buenos Aires Argentina. Tenaris is a global leader in tubular steel technologies and products while Ternium is one of the largest flat steel producers in the world. The global experience is one of the best reasons to work within the Techint group. There are many opportunities to grow and advance in your career, travel the world on short-term or expatriate assignments, learn new languages, attend corporate university, develop your expertise, and work with some of the most intelligent and skilled management.

    Cons

    Depending on your background, the "Tenaris-Way" as its known can have some frustrating downsides. Simple processes and procedures within the firm can often be overly bureaucratic and time-consuming. The 'latin-culture' of the company which permeates into every region can sometimes conflict with norms and standards in countries like the United States and Canada. Simple processes are often too formalized, and processes that should be formalized are often too unofficial and informal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop relationships with leading organizations around to world to share and learn core-competencies and best-practices in regards to people management and development. Ensure that employees are receiving proper training when they advance to the management level to improve the growing pains that come from freshman managers who have little experience managing people and the psychological aspects of being a leader.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Exiros in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Managers require way more skills than what is really needed to perform the job.
