    I worked at Tenaris full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When they finally implemented the half Friday work days, after the manager said it was only reserved for the supervisors...side eye.

    Cons

    Pay is low, no work life balance, in order to be a manager you have to speak foreign language. Laid off mostly everyone except Expact. Office looks like a call center, everyone can hear the other person's conversation.

    Advice to Management

    You say you want this to be an "American" company, you do not exhibit an "American" culture. Do not use the "American" company when it's convenient. Until the changes are made, employees will use this a pit stop until they find a better job.

    Pros

    Good Pay and benefits, flexible working schedule

    Cons

    Worked at Tenaris for 5 years but wanted to quit twice, after 6 months joining the company and another after 2 years. It was a culture shock to me and fortunately or unfortunately decided to stay.
    Will never recommend anyone to work here. Finally out of here

    Advice to Management

    Grow up guys and employ non-latin and qualified people.
