    I have been working at Tenneco

    Pros

    have been with the company a long time. Great co-workers, the team leaders are great & works with the employees.

    Cons

    need better pay for the workers that has been there longer than others. Moral needs to be better. HR & management needs to be out on the floor more to see what the employees actually do. Needs to be cooler in summer time (pretty bad when it feels better outside than it does inside the plant)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work on the things I stated in the Cons of working at Tenneco. Better pay for the employees that has worked there the longest. Find a way to cool the plant down in the summer

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Good communication between different teams. If your in the fast track you can move up quickly.

    Cons

    They are slow as far as promotions, career advancement and are quick to pull back perks. Once a perk is gone it is gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They give some feed back as to the faults in your work but very little in praise for a good job.

    I worked at Tenneco

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to take on challenges. The staffing is lean but they are serious about continuous improvement. They implement programs such as lean in the entire facility, are cost conscious and encourage personal growth (education). In the facility in which I worked, Tenneco offers high quality, American made Walker exhaust products to the automotive industry and is adamant about keeping it's good reputation. Tenneco's corporate culture emphasizes integrity, teamwork, execution, accountability, innovation and balance, all which are traits that I consider important for making career decisions. Also, the Walker exhausts facility is located in a small town with a family-like atmosphere. The people I worked with were excellent to work with. I am grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of their team.

    Cons

    The automotive industry is in an economic contraction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication please.
