I worked at Tenaris

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.

    Pros

    If you like challenges, to be part of a company that is unique in its business and that is currently shapping the rules of steel business, this is the place to be. If you're a fast learner you will get most out of the internal training offer: TenarisUniversity.
    The company has a very clear mindset and vision of what to achieve. Long-term results are more relevant than quarterly performance.

    Cons

    It's not easy to manage your work-life balance. The company has a strong result-driven culture which is allways pulling you back to your chair to finish the job. Failure is not an option. To plan / planning is not a strength of the company.
