Pros

The benefits were wonderful and the bonuses were great. That's about it. The company also seems to make sure to limit layoffs at Corporate and all Plants (for example, an underperforming Plant was able to have employees work at another Plant in other states at the Company's expense). Another good point is the Company's global position. Employees are able to really learn at the global level and take that experience to another company. Finally, after 18 months, employees can transfer into another role. However, if you want to move because you aren't happy, it's hard to get a Supervisor's blessing.

Cons

Global company where most people have a heavy Argentinean accent and knows nothing about work/life balance. The company operates as if they are in Argentina, so the native employees work crazy hours (60+ hour weeks). In addition, it is hard to get your own schedule if you have outside things to do (picking up your kid, seeing your family before dinner time, etc). In Argentina, everyone starts work and ends work at the same time, so that is the expectation here in America. Another problem is that Tenaris has many chiefs and not enough Indians (no offense to anyone). You need like 5 signatures to buy an ink pen.

Advice to Management

Learn to offer your employees some balance; Research the way American businesses work.

    Pros

    Multicultural environment that gives a lot to learn from and a network of international contacts, really good personnel (teams) in all the branches, good training programs - overall a good place to have work experience in international company.

    Cons

    Salaries are mediocre, while work-life balance is sometimes hard to mantain, career is not fast and moving international from your location is something definitely not in company interests (until it is, otherwise). Also, having an Argentinian passport is a big advantage, overall lot of info in reviews here is quite relevant.
