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

    Pros

    I left after six months of employment.....does that give you any pros?

    Cons

    I found this site on a happen stance. I found it numerous after only working six months for this company most employees don't have any clue for whom they actually work. The CEO in Milan would be a convicted felon if laws in the United States were applied in Italy.

    Any review you read about this company from a USA based employee that says "they care", "like a family", "good work life balance" has zero responsibilities. Often times non salaried employees work more than 40 hours without extra compensation. The place is extremely disorganized. Comments about the New York office and its young culture means only one thing - A TOTAL LACK OF EXPERINCE in the tire industry.

    Advice to Management

    Remember you are a manufacturing company selling overpriced average quality products. But in reality you are more of a marketing company selling overpriced average quality products. This is no longer an Italian company, it is owned by the Chinese with Pirelli management struggling to retain their careers. Make products in AMERICA (you only produce a few thousand a week in Rome, GA) rather than importing 95% of your products from outside the USA. I have seen first hand the effects of running off good American employees. Some of these employees I never met but their names are used frequently as sorely being missed in the organization. I'm not sore or bitter with the company, I was just sold a bill of goods when hired and after six months I left on my on accord once I saw first hand the mess this company operates under.

    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

    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.
