    I have been working at Tenaris full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -safe -good 401k -decent insurance -TIIP bonus(especially good if you are getting overtime) -decent pay -able to take classes

    Cons

    -poor management(depending on department) -scheduling and planning issues -emergency crew does not help regular maintenance even on an emergency breakdown(I've been called out of bed to come in and fix a break down. What is the purpose of an emergency crew?)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to a schedule and do not change the PM and maintenance of your machines every day or two. You cannot plan properly to fix machinery and have parts/ tools ready when the PM date is changed a few times a week or even two or three times a day.

    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.

    I have been working at Tenaris

    Pros

    Great training programs and courses available that look great to other oil and gas companies.
    Friendly work environment.
    Easily the industry leader, both in reputation and financially.
    Company is strategic and makes smart big picture decisions.
    International travel is sometimes possible for training.

    Cons

    Work life balance has been the #1 ranked employee complaint (via Employee Survey).
    Low pay for the industry that everyone openly acknowledges and complains about (#2 complaint).
    Turnover has been a problem because of the above reasons.
    Upper management is all Argentine. No effort or attempts to balance this out.
    Very few women, especially when you get to higher level positions.
    Rigid bureaucracy to get anything accomplished (most approvals, for software, raises, hiring, etc..., must go through Argentina).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least pay your employees the industry average. Don't be surprised when they leave for more money.
    Do not require approvals to go through other countries.
    Do not treat your lower level employees as expendable and easily replaceable.
