    mostly a good place to work.

    I have been working at Ternium full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding (health, dental, cafeteria, etc), the pay is not excessive but it is above average and seems reasonable, mostly good and friendly coworkers

    Cons

    mostly "friends" of management get promoted and it could be a tough place to keep work-life balance given the long hours that are demanded by management "just because".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more upfront on what qualifies people for their position and promotions and don't obsess over how many hours people work (more hours does not equal more work!!)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive (not GREAT, but okay). Benefits are great (health, gym). Training program is ok.

    Cons

    Work-life balance depends on area and boss, but mostly the company motto is: "the more hours you put in, the more you work", which is absolutely not true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push the accelerator on the company; promote the good ones, fire the lazy ones and measure productiveness not just hours "worked"!

    Pros

    Good Salary, Benefits, Development program, friendly co workers, a lot of problems to solve, learn a lot of engineering and management skills.

    Cons

    Long hours from 8:30 to18:00 from Monday to Frdy. Very hot weather on the line processes, too focused on Management tools rather than technical and quality tools applyed to the process. Very hurry enviroment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to focus a lot on Metallurgical processes to get a high quality index on steel products, Management tools are good but there are a lot of competition and asian companies are very effective in price and quality, so you have to reduce your costs and improve your processes. I suggest you to create a research department on steel processing products.

    Good company with good opportunities and benefits, but with a poor culture and unhealthy work environment

    I worked at Ternium full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company offers great career opportunities, good compensation and benefits compared to other local companies and the work/life balance depends on each department.

    Cons

    The company is ran mostly by Argentinians which is not cool in this case for Mexicans who were not given most of the key positions because they were assigned to foreigners. Also, I did not like the ton of metrics and functional organization because it did not promote team work. Incentives of the different departments were not aligned towards the best of the company. Thus, there is a culture of rivalry and protecting yourself from other departments, which is not healthy overall.

    Pros

    Good working conditions for workers and interns (food, transport, recreational areas), good salaies, good treatment from workers (at administrative level). In some plants interns get an office to themselves.

    Cons

    Some plants are rather old, treatment from lower category workers is not so good, very unflexible company, low category workers don't have a voice in the company's decisions. Tough environment, in terms of polution and some workers' attitudes.

    Pros

    stress free work environment,
    helpful co workers
    good training program, since it focuses on more practical matters
    great balance between personal time and work.

    Cons

    slow growth potential
    low salary compared to competitors
    poor organization of resources
    high difficulty to apply in continuous education programs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    from an now outsider point of view management should consider restructuring
    the organizational layout, since the company comes from a recent merge.
