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

    I worked at Michelin North America full-time (More than a year)

    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!

    Pros

    Still a solid company with more than 100 years of experience.

    Cons

    Last 2 years the lack of leadership and appointing people based on Ole Buddy system is destroying the future of the company

    Advice to Management

    Need a serious change of direction. In order to cut cost you should plan ahead and not cut cost suppressing the manpower and letting go the talented people.

    Pros

    Its just a job like anywhere else

    Cons

    Changing managment like underwear , managment targeting great employees, lots of harassment, if youre a hard worker do not come here.

    Advice to Management

    90 percent of you need to be fired alomg with the the day walkers that do nothing.

    I worked at Michelin North America full-time

    Pros

    Training - Definitely the most comprehensive training.
    Job Security - If you put the time in you will always have a job.

    Cons

    Pay - Not as competitive as other companies. Must be willing to move quite often in order to increase salary.
    Systems - Systems are slow to upgrade and HQ responsiveness is lacking due to overall size.

    Advice to Management

    Be more consistent in your message to the field. Seems to change way to often and without much feedback from the field.

    I have been working at Michelin North America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    HNA is a great place to work.
    I am valued, and appreciated, as well respected for my input and experience.
    Opportunities to grow and learn are nearly endless, it is up to you to take advantage of this.

    Cons

    Almost to secure, the lobby is not inviting_very badge swipe-ey, simple, and drab.
    Otherwise, none - you make this opportunity what you want - do not expect someone to hold your hand through your career.

    Advice to Management

    Empowerment doesn't mean abandonment.
    Pay close attention to talent, or someone looking to grow - you may have something great on your hands if you take the time to see/listen.
    Look for feedback on leadership - sometimes that is overlooked.

    Pros

    Incredible product, outstanding training & continuing education program. Wonderful people. I highly recommend working for Michelin for at least 5 years out of college.

    Cons

    Pay, very structured, employees are empowered very little (known problem). After 5 + years with the company you will be bored. Time to move on unless you are okay with not being challenged. Customer relationships are difficult because of structured nature of programs. Little creativity. Decisions are all centralized with little input from those closest to the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your customer relationships- create a collaborative culture with them.

    Pros

    employee centric , great product

    Cons

    losing the ability to be innovative. the overall company does not attempt to be a leader in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those closest to the customers, not closest to retirement.
