This is not a place for Canadians. No respect for our values.

    I have been working at Tenaris full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Meaningful work, international experiences, and long term commitment to high performers. If you are committed, smart, and vocal then Tenaris will work to make you happy. Very much a place where you have to ask and push for what you want instead of expecting it to come to you. Recent additions of local employees to higher level positions are appreciated. Extremely sharp upper management, the company is wildly profitable when compared to competitors.

    Cons

    The USA office was created by merging two acquired companies under the Tenaris name and created some cultural tension. Work life balance can be tough in some departments and generational expectations about work can become issues when cultural expectations come into play. Sometimes the commitment to tenured employees keeps a lot of dead weight afloat. Not a company for people with thin skin or for someone looking for "just a job".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent, find ways to reduce bureaucracy, and adapt to your emerging markets. This isn't Campana in 1980.
