    I have been working at Michelin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Michelin is a good company to start with. I have been with the company for 20 years. The people I work with are really nice. But The management really really sucks. And most people there a kinda dumb so I feek dumb too.

    Cons

    The salary really really sucks. I hope to make more money once I get a new job. The salary reaise every year is also a joke. With my bacherlors and double masters, I should be making so much more money. But Michelin only looks at work experience within the company.

    Advice to Management

    The management hires the worst people and nobody has no idea what is going on. I don't even know what managers do at Michelin. They hired a manager for my previous team who had no technical experience at all. Why would you ever do that. It does not make sense at all.

    First rate quality product. Great career opportunities. Training for technical personnel was excellent. Great hands on experience for new engineers.

    Cons

    I worked at Michelin full-time

    Pros

    Benefits were great, and they really take care of their employees. I loved my time there but needed to take a leave of absence.

    Cons

    The only hard part was working swing shifts. It was nice to have certain fays off but the schedule was very different it was hard to get a good nights sleep

    Advice to Management

    Please give paternity leave to your employees, and please make the interview process more streamlined. It would be very helpful if calls were returned on time.
