    Pros

    hours are excellent, great pay and benefits, supervisors treat you like you are part of the team. co workers are very friendly.

    Cons

    dirty dusty environment, not air conditioned. you have to work there for a year before you get vacation time off.

    Advice to Management

    management is doing a great job improving the place. I would advise them to find ways to be more competitive so they can call laid off workers back to work.

    Pros

    Overall a very good company. Wages were competitive and in some cases above average. Good benefit package- medical/dental/vision/401 etc.

    Cons

    Long work hours however you make lots of $$$ so it's not so bad.

    Advice to Management

    Company is heading in the right direction so no advice needed.

    Pros

    A lot of decent hard working people, mostly in non-management roles.

    Cons

    This place has one of the worst corporate cultures I have seen. It lacks an identity of their own, their strategy to fix this was to attend a garage sale held by USS & Tenaris and picking up all the 5 cent trinkets they could find and put them in management roles. They also have an absurd amount of Directors, most of them are completely incompetent and came from other companies from lower positions. Their lying and manipulating on safety, company strength and quality is beyond criminal.

     The only semi-decent thing is that will hire people with no experience as inside sales. Once they have 1 to 2 years of experience they are poached by competitors or customers because everyone knows there are almost no advancement opportunities.....mostly lies about them. The few that have moved up have had to fight extremely hard for it and even then got screwed on compensation.

    The is so much fighting, backstabbing, and throwing each other under the bus across all departments that its no wonder why priority number 1 is CYA and not to make any decisions that go against the wishes of management, no matter how ridiculous those wishes are.

    The have a horrible reputation in the marketplace amongst distributors, other mills, and even end users.

    Advice to Management

    Too far gone. Only way to fix it is to shut the company down for 6 months, fire all executive management, hire component trustworthy people and start fresh.


  6. Layoffs - stay away unless you are interviewing for conjured up corporate position.

    Pros

    If you like food, this is the place for you. Our Senior Management consists of food enthusiasts - just ask our BIG dog! We even have chili cook offs which are nice. Good benefits and salary when market is good.

    Cons

    Steel industry at crossroad and at mercy of unpredictable OPEC oil/gas market manipulation. Obviously this organization does not have a KPI for employee retention. The revolving door has to be slowed down to fit everyone in an orderly fashion on their way out.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself and about 80% of Houston. Quit promoting neophyte professionals to corporate level management positions. The people at plants know they're cheaply hired due to the quality of direction they are given from these freshly graduated humanity majors.

    Pros

    The benefits and salary are great for the area but your life outside of TMK will be gone! Great co workers who try to do the right thing but unfortunately can't due to management's incompetence!

    Cons

    You will have no life at all! Constantly changing the schedule and not doing what's right according to seniority! Favoritism is a huge huge problem!

    Advice to Management

    Get it together before you idiots have the doors shut down!
