Pros

Global leader
Superior products
Clients have favorable opinion of Tenaris
New investments being made to upgrade mills in the US

Cons

Departments are extremely flat and lean
Work very long hours due to lack of support and under-staffed teams
Many promtions are given to ex-pats from Argentina, Mexico or Italy
Lots of turnover
Most leaders in the US are ex-pats who come across arrogant, entitled and treat employees with very little respect

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tenaris has been given more than enough time in the United States to take actions employees have shared with you year after year in the employee survey opinion. Problems remain in lack of work-life balance, advancement opportunity, very few females in leadership roles, little transparency and too many ex-pats who don't understand or respect American cultures.

    Pros

    If you are commited with the company and understand the comporate aspect of this big company, you can grow and will be recognized for it

    Cons

    To make each region more strong, starts a process to hire local people for high position, the transition is not working well with IT area a least since who was hire does not understand or don't want to understand how company works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After many years working in Tenaris, It is the first time that i start to consider to leave this company.
    My advise is that the same exercice applied with expat's about cultural differences, must be applied with local hire for managerial and director position, the lack of knowledge about the company culture may "destroy" the confidence of very good professionals on Tenaris. Not because the company by itself but because bad selection process and / or a follow up to make sure if new hire is not trying to change the Tenari's way

    Pros

    The pay is great and medical benefits are fantastic. If you are looking for a company to start low and quickly move up, Tenaris is good for that.

    Cons

    Expatriates do not know how to manage American employees. Work hours are long and employees are expected to give up every aspect of their personal life for the needs of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the employees more opportunities for their personal lives. Not every small aspect in the business is an emergency and does not warrant the employees waking up in the midnight hours to respond to the business.
