    I worked at Michelin (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Theyre are no pros in this company

    Cons

    If you can get over the fact that there are sex offenders working beside you and if you suck up to the micromanagers enough you may do good there. Morally its a very degrading place to work especially if you have a family. Family days yet they employ sex offenders?

    I have been working at Michelin full-time

    Pros

    Excellent people, thorough training, various opportunities for professional growth, steady employment

    Cons

    Pay is reasonable but not very competitive. If you're not looking to get rich quick but instead have a long stable career with a good company, this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Give the best talent an incentive to stick around, whether it be pay or career advancement.

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

    Pros

    The benefits were good and I enjoyed the people that worked around my cubical.

    Cons

    Literally everything else. Management has no idea of they're coming or going. They tell you one thing but it's incorrect, also they give you unrealistic expectations after a call is over. You have 2 minutes to complete your work when the call is over and you can not request more time. It is extremely micro managed. (TMI, they interrogated me for going to the restroom)

    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.

    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

    I have been working at Michelin full-time

    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.

    Cons

    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.
