    I have been working at Michelin full-time

    Pros

    Great work - life balance, opportunities to work with great people and travel a little if in the right role. Decent benefits

    Cons

    Complicated internal structure, lower pay (but that is how you get the work/life balance). France leads and therefore its hard to always understand decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about streamlining and actually streamline development. clean up the organization reporting so things are more vertical and less dotted-lines of reporting which confuses employees. Every time a decision is made you find out there were maybe 5 additional people that feel they have authority to reverse the call.

    I worked at Michelin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    They give you vacation then after you use it they make you pay it back cause they say you haven’t earned it.
    Walk and stand in cement floors for 12 hours
    Lifting heavy block without automation assistance.
    Get lungs full of carbon black
    Get dirty and black everyday
    Low wages for the amount of work you do
    Place you in a work area and tell you that you have to stay there for 2 years

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like humans instead of a number

    Pros

    Michelin takes care of its employees. The pay is competitive and the benefits are good. The manufacturing work environment overall is good, though it can be demanding at times. Great people to work with.

    Work/life balance is tough sometimes, get a lot of calls outside of work. Getting the necessary resources to do your job effectively is tough.

    Advice to Management

    Employees need the right resources to do their job effectively. Also, there are many ways to reduce costs. Reducing headcount is not the only way.
