    I have been working at Pirelli full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere feels more like a family than a work environment. Management is very understandable to family matters and time off is given if needed.

    Cons

    Individual responsibilities are not expressly given or known. There is a lack of accountability for some of the management team.

    I have been working at Pirelli full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I honestly can't express a positive asset

    Cons

    Must be an Italian to advance.
    Top Management heavy
    Nobody knows what anyone else is doing to achieve common goal
    Lackluster HR department with no career planning
    Quality is a buzzword, it's all about name image

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing in Pirelli employees from foreign countries taking the place of more than capable American workers.

    Who runs the company? Every division head runs his/her department like a separate business.

    Stop chasing out experienced employees. You have lost 5-6 GOOD top executives that were the backbone of your NAFTA region.

    I have been working at Pirelli full-time

    Pros

    Excellent product and market position, growing rapidly in North America. Espresso machine in office. Occasional perks. Young culture in NYC office.

    Cons

    Very rigid Italian corporate culture. High power-distance ratio. Despite statements otherwise, Italian is the primary language spoken in the office.

    North America CEO and head of North American HR publicly state that to get promoted you need to move to Canada, Mexico, or rural Georgia. All management consists of Italian ex-pats who are rotated through to positions over eligible tenured local staff. You must give your life up for the company in order to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Any attempts to change corporate culture will fail if all management must pass through Milan headquarters rigid corporate structure. Invest in additional programmers to support fledgling tech initiatives.

    I have been working at Pirelli full-time

    Pros

    Pirelli is an international company, which looks great on a resume. Brand is famous for high quality tires. Benefits are good. Vacation's great.

    Cons

    Upper management tends to be disrespectful and clicky. Italians are treated rather differently than the Americans. Pay tends to be on the lower end of the spectrum unless you're selling the tires. This company loves temps and keeps you as a temp for as long as possible (ie no benefits). Very disorganized. Training is laughable. These things are slowly changing.

    Advice to Management

    TRAINING!!! TRAIN your employees. Excel classes...SAP classes...TIRE knowledge classes... Anything and not just a once a year thing.
