    I have been working at Michelin North America full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    - culture and values - approach to career development - the people who work here

    Cons

    - Since the company is in the midst of implementing a new organization, there are some challenges that were not foreseen, and that will take some time to work through.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course with customer-centricity!

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Michelin North America full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The pay structure was excellent and exceeded my previous employment environments. Corporate culture was inviting and provided for ample advancement opportunities. Would highly recommend Michelin as an employer. I left to pursue work in another field or would still be with Michelin.

    Cons

    I have worked for three separate corporations and found Michelin to "outshine" the other two by a wide margin

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent work and never forget that people are the company!

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Michelin North America full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Strong, ethical, diverse company that keeps its people employed even during hard times. Truly a company devoted to safety and quality.

      Cons

      Slow growth in compensation and career progression.

      Advice to Management

      An extraordinary company also needs an extraordinary platform for career progression based more on associate merit and performance than in rigid human resource models that assumes that almost everyone is just an "average" contributor.

      Neutral Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Michelin North America full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Large corporation that takes their training very seriously. First 6 months on the job is 50% travel/training. Work life balance is somewhere between average and excellent depending on your location and department. Standards for individual contribution and performance are lackluster, this is both a pro and a con. Has a problem with retention of junior engineers (0-3 years experience) but that makes it easier...

      Cons

      Compensation is on the lower end of average, and raises are arranged in a very formal structure that ensures you have to promote regularly to get more than 1-3%/year. The "good old boy" club is in effect; work ethic and productivity have little correlation with success or professional growth. Management can act very vindictively when you apply internally to other departments or locations.

      Advice to Management

      Develop a culture in Tuscaloosa of accountability and recognition of hard work that fosters meaningful improvements and professional growth. Nepotism is a big problem with the culture at the plant.

      I have been working at Michelin North America full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Pay is competitive compared to others nearby.

      Cons

      Poor Management. Do not care about their employees. Benefits aren’t as good as they were.

      Advice to Management

      Management needs to treat everyone fairly. Make slack employees pull their weight and not put more on the good employees.
