    I worked at Exiros full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful company to work for. Offered many opportunities. I was able to meet many wonderful people from all over the world. I had the opportunity to visit Argentina.

    Cons

    When work slows down because oil prices drop, it becomes an unstable work environment.

    Pros

    - Work environment
    - The majority of the people there were the best.
    - Location
    - The hot beverage bar is good.
    - Great Benefit package
    - Not bad salary

    Cons

    - The managers interfere in your job and make it impossible to complete!
    - No life work balance at all
    - The work load is crazy
    - End-users attitude is unbearable
    - Managers live in another universe and they keep dumping side projects on you and ask you to make contracts for inactive materials just to improve their own metrics, without showing respect to the buyer's crazy work load or vendor's time.
    - They took out the flex schedule yet all Tenaris employees (In Galleria location) still working half Fridays!
    - Racism & Nepotism, 95% of the employees are from Hispanic origins, no room for any non-Spanish speaker to grow in the company what's so ever.

    Advice to Management

    I'm no longer interested, I left the company, but how about reading the real survey that was submitted by the US employees (Not the forged result that you e-mailed us), you can start from there!

    I worked at Exiros full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working hours are flexible. Many come in early/leave early and many come in late/leave late. Pretty good benefits. I can't really think of anything else that is positive about this place but Glassdoor requires 20 words of pros.

    Cons

    Very low compensation compared to other similar positions in the industry. You will never (emphasize never) receive competitive raises. Management is terrible. Turnover is very high and nothing is done to correct this. People at the bottom are viewed as replaceable. Goals are unrealistic so nobody is motivated to try to reach them. Even if they are reached, bonuses and raises are SO laughable (less than inflation), if they even come at all. They are based on performance of Tenaris and Ternium (mother companies), so working hard won't even benefit you. Spare yourself the agony.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a legitimate track for promotion. Stop being so cheap that it's insulting to employees and outsiders. Stop micromanaging. Don't question why good people leave yet do nothing to correct it. We all want to leave.

    Pros

    It is very hard to find anything positive to say about Exiros unless you consider adding to your resume a positive. If you need a job that can get you over the hump until something better comes along, then go for it.

    Cons

    I spent a few years in Exiros and watched how the wheel turned. Optimism was at an all-time low when I left. Many good employees were let go. The wrong people are in the wrong positions specially the management team and the people that can make a difference aren't allowed to.
    Buyers are overworked and are viewed as replaceable. Support staff, for the most part, does not have the proper training or experience to complete their jobs. If you plan to only work 40 hr week this is not the place since routinely you will be working 50+ until you complete your load. Bad work/life balance if you have a family.

    Advice to Management

    Can't say anything that hasn't been said already: Open your eyes and see the good that is being squashed by the bad.

    I worked at Exiros full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent structure, efficiently designed, weighted and measured. Good team to get along with.

    Cons

    Depends on bad management decisions from its parent companies, every year seems to get leaner even though EBITDA is solid year in and out thus resulting in overloaded work levels , People morale staying low, and rotation in very high levels (and shall continue the trend if corporate doesn't change the view of things on each particular region, but they're too busy pointing fingers, not much charge being taken).

    Advice to Management

    Battle to get more empowerment and independence from your corporate management team. Empower your regions and look for their own particular needs, people retention and empowerment is key

    Pros

    Most Co-workers are great people, Location, Parking, Average Benefits?

    Cons

    It is run like a family business, Micro-Management, no opportunities to move up, salary below average, insane workload, consistently understaff, high turnover, company culture sucks, no life work balance....should I keep going or you got the point?

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and manipulating your employes, that would be a great start............. along the other 50 things you need to do to improve this place!

    Pros

    Dont have a life? No problem! You will suceed in this company!

    Cons

    Tremendous amount of work for a lite salary. If you are not argentinian it will take you years to move up the chain.
    Get rid of tenaris university! Waste of time.
    For the US employees there are no so many opportunities only for ex pats

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees more opportunities to travel and learn more from the company in other countries

    Pros

    Very organized, clear procedures, OK compensation.

    Cons

    Excessive micromanagement, upper management treats employees like children, no trust, drama for unecessary things, very low morale among buyers, extremely high turnover, managers have huge Egos, a lot of bureaucracy and politics (numbers are more important than concrete results). Low respect for the american work culture (this is not Argentina!).

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people (not everybody is as stupid as you might think). Pick your battles (you cannot have all buyers about to have a nervous breakdown all the time). Try not to be so uptight all the time (there is life outside of the office - at least for some of us).
