    Good company with high growth potential

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood pay
    Good benefits
    Good work- life balance comparing to competitors
    Lots of training opportunities

    ConsCulture bully - French dominated
    Unequal treatment between expats and local employees - Expats get 3 times+ vacation days than same level of local employees, not to speak of other monetary allowance. When the expats in the team go for vacations, the local employees in the team get to do the expats' job, as you don't get the time off, and with a lower pay.
    Too non-aggressive in business development activities

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It looks nicer on the other side of the fence, until you take a job there...

    Electrician/ET (Current Employee) Youngstown, OH

    ProsLocality to where you live is the greatest pro that Vallourec offers. The next greatest pro is the pay, but beware because they are currently considering regressing some of the pay scales for tenure employees.

    ConsStress and working conditions. Required training programs for basic electricians include an in depth knowledge of calculus, physics and advanced electrical principles. Even with my college degree, I am getting lost in the requirements, and failure to complete 15 annual test will result in a reduction in pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart telling employees "good job" when they go beyond the call of duty instead of "you get a paycheck".

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
