    I have been working at Tenaris full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Global teams, but still very connected and responsive. HR very much doing the right things in terms of processes and creating a more employee-centric experience. Significant investment in training, truly a differentiator. Lots of change, but good change!

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but because of the global scope, it is important to have some scheduling flexibility depending on location for meetings, etc. Overall, teams seem more results driven and hours are flexible as long as objectives are being met.

    Advice to Management

    In the US specifically, real work/life balance is an expectation for prospective employees, so it is an area to work on and drive changes. The tools are there, just encourage their use. We can continue to look at what our customers/competitors are doing in this area.

    I have been working at Tenaris full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large stable global company, some ability to travel, good pay for U.S. employees, great health insurance for U.S. employees, good maternity/paternity leave, spending a month in Argentina for training

    Cons

    This applies to the U.S. only (this is a huge company) -
    No females in any mid/upper management, they don't care about their employees, your happiness depends on your plant manager because corporate doesn't value you, no free lunches, no flexible hours, can't work from home, no happy hours, everyone is very burnt out and stressed, expects employees to work 50+ hours, very little IT support to reduce employee's hours, very little vacation

    Advice to Management

    Your U.S. employees do not feel like a valued part of the organization, and when people are working long hours, extremely stressed, and not excited to work there, the workplace becomes toxic
