    Pros

    It started well with a competitive drive to push for record production levels. Senior managers at the site needed to be knowledgeable to be effective.

    Cons

    The spirit to perform well has left the building. The people getting promoted to higher management positions have little comprehension of the process so their decision-making is either weak or simply off-track. The highly skilled technical people will never be promoted so the site will remain trapped by weak leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting incompetent people to leadership positions. We're tired of it. When we see people who can't meet their objectives get promoted up, we all ask aloud, "WTF?"

    I have been working at Michelin North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is, by far, the most caring of any I know; however, they are also a very humble company so many of their good deeds are never advertised. They really do care about their people and provide limitless opportunities for those willing to go after them. There is nothing you can't do at Michelin as long as you're willing to work for it. It is not uncommon to meet people who have worked here 20 yrs or more... you obviously don't stay that long unless there is a reason to stay. Great company!

    Cons

    Poor management quality! It is the only area of weakness.

    Advice to Management

    Put "people" people in management positions that will challenge and engage employees and leverage your "results oriented" people in individual contributor roles. Let them truly focus on what they do best - getting results - and leave the management to those who manage best.

    Pros

    Good pay
    Time off during the week
    Can advance quickly if you know the right people

    Cons

    Rotating schedule makes no sense
    Your best is never good enough

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring stupid people

    Pros

    Loyal customer base
    Nice area of the country

    Cons

    No work and life balance
    Internal Politics
    Poor Corporate Leadership
    Poor work culture

    Advice to Management

    Corporate leaders and ownership need to create a better work culture. It is hard to motivate employees when they hate the company. Good Luck.

    Pros

    This is a stable company with quality products where you can be proud to work at. The work is challenging and rewarding. The benefits package is known to be one of the best around. Even when times get tough, they try their best to make sure employees are taken care of. International travel opportunities. Work-life balance is good but is dependent on your manager. Company supports career development and mobility but you are the ultimate driver of this. Tuition reimbursement program. Interesting opportunities coming up in the IT/Digital realm.

    Cons

    The salaries are slightly below average in most parts of the company, but especially in IT. They rely on the benefits package and the reputation of the company to attract and retain talent. Michelin suffers from the same problems as most other large international corporations. Change can be slow-moving sometimes because of too much red tape and too many levels of management. Communication could be better with our counterparts overseas.

    Advice to Management

    Consider reviewing the salaries for your technical IT positions. This is going to be essential in attracting and retaining top technical talent which is going to be needed in today’s tech-oriented world. Other large manufacturers have launched campaigns to attract top tech talent.

    Michelin is a great place to work and I’m grateful to be a part of the team. You get out of it what you put in. If you give it your all, you will reap the rewards. Michelin truly cares about its customers and its employees.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits; opportunities to learn, to advance, to be a part of the larger community.

    Cons

    Depending on the department/job, the workload can be quite heavy, especially if you care to do your job in an excellent manner. HR department is not strong; if you need assistance be ready to be your own advocate.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your HR processes, particularly in the area of communication of polices, processes to your staff and to the employees. Need better management when employees use external benefits (EAP).
