    I have been working at Tenneco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable salaries for entry level engineers. Flexible with comp time when traveling over the weekends.

    Cons

    Typically given VERY little advanced notice for international travel. (2 days -14 days advance notice). Upper management does not listen to sound engineering advice provided by the experts they hired. Direct managers are expected to manage 5-15 employees and also manage customers that their employees are responsible for. This leads to VERY POOR managing of the employees. It is a shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to make proper engineering decisions and stop shooting from the hip due to tight customer timing. Your advanced technologies have no future with your current choices.

    I have been working at Tenneco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Seems like a stable job, but having to work almost every day of the year gets to be ridiculous.

    Cons

    No accountability for the employees on the floor. Employees have been caught doing an outrageous amounts of things that would normally get them fired but have not even been reprimanded. Company continues to hire the same sort of lazy people that do not have even the meager work ethics of a fast food place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the staffing agency that can't maintain employee levels or manage to even hire people with mediocre work ethics. Start holding people accountable for poor performance instead of letting them laze about. Get off the "fake safety" issue of piercings, you are alienating the employee base. Long-term employees are quitting like rats from a sinking ship because of these issues.
