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

    Pros

    Get to talk about motorcycles with other enthusiasts. Occasionally get to ride where others do not and new products...not as much as you think unfortunately. Best aspect about the job is the perception of what people think you do. Worst part is you don't actually do it.

    Cons

    Company is not employee-centric. Far from it. Senior management has a short sighted view on year to year profits and sales with questionable practices, rather than building relations for future growth. Management very vindictive and attempts to manage in a autocratic style. Their way or the highway.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the current US CEO and several from the management team. When the CEO condones and pushes illegal sales practices, I highly recommend employees do not follow down this path.

    Pros

    Passionate colleagues and environment, very strong brand, thrilling sector and amazing products which you can ride during events organized by distributors and/or by the HQ.

    Missing career path, lack of medium and long term strategy from top management, missing job rotation, lack of communication between departments which can effect negatively individual and company results.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on career development and international assignments
