    Pros

    Good benefits. Top R&D. Good training.

    Cons

    Culture Change.
    Perhaps in their efforts to make things more "modern" and "bigger", they have lost some of the old culture, where the company was considered one of the best places to work because of their people. It was the company's family atmosphere, their human touch that created those people, the culture that made others want to build their careers for 30-40 years because they were treated, like family.

    Advice to Management

    Be conscious of perception vs reality in every situation. Listen to new ideas and be supportive in any efforts to make your team successful. Accept your differences and agree to disagree. Be conscious of who does the work well to earn a promotion, not who you like golfing with or any other frivolous reason. Show empathy where it is lacking. Be a strong leader, not a blind follower. Do what is right, not what is popular.

    Pros

    Job security, benefits, training, good reputation as a leader in the future of mobility. Several high quality people in the sales group.

    Cons

    Leadership and management slow to make changes. Tough environment to make a difference. Career development has major institutional flaws.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing. Your people don't care what you know until they know you care. Please remember change must start at the top of the organization.

    Pros

    Great Company to work for. Michelin's structure creates a very stable and secure work environment. Michelin provides you all of the tools needed to be successful in the job.

    Cons

    Michelin uses reports as metrics to judge success instead of sales. Bonuses are paid based on team goals and not individual goals. Poor recruitment, Turnover, and lack of sales capabilities can directly affect your pay.
