    I worked at Michelin (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I would say that Michelin Tyres is one of the best places to work. The pay, work load, challenges and the general hierarchical structure is simply great. You can have a great work life balance and still learn a lot of exciting things on the job. Now with Michelin India, you might not experience the entire bag of goodies but still a nice place to work nevertheless.

    Cons

    * Internal politics of a select few could mar your enthusiasm but thats expected in every company.
    * A major drawback is the distance to work, the plant is located on the fringes of the Andhra border near Periyapallayam and the travel to and fro is one of the most harrowing ever.
    * Apart from those, I have never felt any negative aspect with Michelin for the 5 years I worked there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!!

    I have been working at Michelin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Training, Safety at work, Little work pressure

    Cons

    Company Values are mostly in Displays and Papers when comes to Operating Staffs. No work-life balance. Career growth is only for who shakes head for the managers.

    Advice to Management

    Break the wall between Operating and Supervisory categories.
    Michelin is French Origin - No doubt in that. But Michelin India(Chennai plant) is in Chennai, TN, India and most of the employees are South Indians. So please keep the policies, holidays, designation according to South Indian tradition and culture.
    Do not waste money in useless roadshows instead reform the OS designation and salary structure to improve results.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Michelin (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was a great place to work when it came to India in 2010
    you can get paid without doing much work
    Transportation is provided (AC Bus)

    Cons

    Please do not attempt to reason out things or ask questions, you may lose your job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The MNC culture has vanished , the concept of great place to work is just a camouflage , they make you feel that they are listening to you, thay they brain wash you into believing them and then they say that they have succeded
    The concept of career management is just a way of ensuring that you don't feel that your an expert or a professional in any domain, based on the concept of JACK OF ALL TRADES AND MASTER OF NONE
    You will get a good appraisal or promotion only if you are able to flatter your supervisors, if you try telling them to take a different approach (even if that is the right way) you will be cornered and made to suffer
    Partiality, unfair appraisals, favoritism are the core values to this company
    You need not have the knowledge about the profile you are handling,you just need to know how to flatter you boss
    Management emphasizes on teamwork, but the HR Department itself lacks it, (very evident when they fail to stand up for the team and point hands on others ) .
    MNC Banner but worse than a muncipal coporation
    Worst C & B team, no employee friendly tax structure, show you an amazing package but end of the month you get only peanuts
    Every month you will receive a different package, and the deduction are not clear, tax is different every month even if your salary is the same
    Will not get a proper response from C&B team , you may get one reply after several followup ( sometimes months or even a year) and that will also not be satisfactory
    Payroll is outsoursed and not internal ownership to clarify doubts of employees

    Advice to Management

    Learn to understand what skillsets are required for a job and just dont transfer people to other departments just to show mobility .
    If you are able to appreciate and retain people who actually know a job it will be better for the continuity of the Company rather showing partility
    Worst C & B team, please change the team in INDIA
