An ideal start for college graduates but would not be interested for the long term experience.

I worked at Tenaris

Pros

At the beginning of the merger of Tenaris with Hydril and Maverick, the bonus were very generous but now are only standard for a manufacturing company.

Cons

Because the company finds every aspect of the company to save money, all employees are expected to complete all accounting expense related to projects. Additionally, they have all their accounting approvals go through oversees before it is released to companies located in the states.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although they take their employees to a Management Camp for two weeks, the choice of employees taken still require more experience with projects and working at the facilities in order to understand how to manage people and projects.

    I have been working at Tenaris

    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
