    Low salary for the volume

    Senior Buyer (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsDont have a life? No problem! You will suceed in this company!

    ConsTremendous amount of work for a lite salary. If you are not argentinian it will take you years to move up the chain.
    Get rid of tenaris university! Waste of time.
    For the US employees there are no so many opportunities only for ex pats

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive your employees more opportunities to travel and learn more from the company in other countries

    Good procurement school but no room to grow

    Procurement Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsExcellent structure, efficiently designed, weighted and measured. Good team to get along with.

    ConsDepends on bad management decisions from its parent companies, every year seems to get leaner even though EBITDA is solid year in and out thus resulting in overloaded work levels , People morale staying low, and rotation in very high levels (and shall continue the trend if corporate doesn't change the view of things on each particular region, but they're too busy pointing fingers, not much charge being taken).

    Advice to Senior ManagementBattle to get more empowerment and independence from your corporate management team. Empower your regions and look for their own particular needs, people retention and empowerment is key

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    You will be micromanaged

    Buyer (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsVery organized, clear procedures, OK compensation.

    ConsExcessive micromanagement, upper management treats employees like children, no trust, drama for unecessary things, very low morale among buyers, extremely high turnover, managers have huge Egos, a lot of bureaucracy and politics (numbers are more important than concrete results). Low respect for the american work culture (this is not Argentina!).

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your people (not everybody is as stupid as you might think). Pick your battles (you cannot have all buyers about to have a nervous breakdown all the time). Try not to be so uptight all the time (there is life outside of the office - at least for some of us).

    The Techint Group

    Global Trainee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsExiros is the procurement arm of the Techint Group, a large multinational engineering company in the oil & gas sector. Exiros is owned 50/50 by Tenaris and sister company Ternium, incorporated in Luxemborg, and functionally based in Buenos Aires Argentina. Tenaris is a global leader in tubular steel technologies and products while Ternium is one of the largest flat steel producers in the world. The global experience is one of the best reasons to work within the Techint group. There are many opportunities to grow and advance in your career, travel the world on short-term or expatriate assignments, learn new languages, attend corporate university, develop your expertise, and work with some of the most intelligent and skilled management.

    ConsDepending on your background, the "Tenaris-Way" as its known can have some frustrating downsides. Simple processes and procedures within the firm can often be overly bureaucratic and time-consuming. The 'latin-culture' of the company which permeates into every region can sometimes conflict with norms and standards in countries like the United States and Canada. Simple processes are often too formalized, and processes that should be formalized are often too unofficial and informal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop relationships with leading organizations around to world to share and learn core-competencies and best-practices in regards to people management and development. Ensure that employees are receiving proper training when they advance to the management level to improve the growing pains that come from freshman managers who have little experience managing people and the psychological aspects of being a leader.
