    Pros

    Great place to develop a long time career, lots of training, safety improving every day, very analytically oriented, lots of opportunities to grow, specially for young people.

    Cons

    Company trying to reduce the headcounts in all levels leaving the people overloaded. Still not a people oriented company. Plants that are not in Houston are in the middle of nowhere, which makes the talent runaway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the people by trying to improve their work-life balance.

    Pros

    The Global Trainee Program is nice: a rotation, a month in Argentina, and lots of training. Employees are really sweet and want to see you succeed. Looks good on your resume when applying outside.

    Cons

    The pay is abysmal for the amount of hours you'll work. Management thinks that "work-life balance" means using your vacation hours. Most managerial positions are filled with people from Argentina, Mexico, or Italy who can barely speak English. Late day meetings where you'll be verbally berated are common. Once you graduate the GT program your evaluations are based on politics more than what you've done. Zero chance of rotating out of your job without being a director's pet. HR is more focused on appeasing management. Very high turnover, expect someone else's job to be dumped on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people with experience. Promote locally instead of just filling positions with expat wives.

    Pros

    Good workplace to learn. Company has a successful business model and have smart, hard working people working for them. Strong in procedures and process management.

    Cons

    Top management is all from Argentina, Mexico, or Italy. If you are not from one of this countries, growth opportunities will be few to none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on life / work balance to attract more US employees.

    I have been working at Tenaris full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Safe environment, decent pay, great benefits

    Cons

    Management and supervisors are quick to come take a picture of something, email it it every supervisor in the plant, make a big deal out of something instead of talking to the operator and asking why they are doing something in a particular way (usually they have no idea why the operators are doing what caused them to take the picture)
      Work floor is extremely loud, hearing protection is offered, but hearing loss will happen to anyone who spends multiple years on the production floor.
      There is a definite need for an air filtration system, the heat treat process releases a red dust into the air which is easily inhaled by people on the floor. Sinus infections are unavoidable, and constant. I'm sure there are other health factors involved with the inhalation of the red dust as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate directly with employees instead of emailing

    Pros

    Nice workplace with good people that can teach you a lot. Challenging high impact work from the beginning. Great place to start. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Management can sometimes be overly top down. Lots of frustrating norms and procedures that don't add much value. Salary a little on the light side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the excess reporting and automate the standard reporting. There is such a thing as too lean. When a 60 hour work week is the norm something isn't working.
