    The best part about is traveling to other locations and getting to see different parts of the world.

    Cons

    Pros

    The company has solid financial position and good reputation in the industry. Starting salaries are generally good and benefits are fair. Very flexible work hours and there is a strong community feel among the employees.

    Cons

    Senior leaderships lacks vision and ability to inspire. Promotional opportunities highly favor those with a willingness to relocate. Far too much meaningless busywork on LEAN. Not enough diversity in people or thought.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! Just minding the store and making random acquisitions isn't a strategy.

    Pros

    Because the staff was so thin, you could get a wide variety of experience

    Cons

    Management was way too demanding of employees and would not bring in the right people to help get the job done. Instead of helping getting things done and understanding what needed to be done, they would just ask us why things weren't done yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that most of the people were doing as good of a job as they could

    Pros

    The people are the best thing about working at Goodrich, interaction is great, and they are all working towards a common goal.

    Cons

    Upper management does not know where the Chandler site is heading to, if they do, they have not given a clear vision to the workforce. Very political.

    Chandler site management has massive turnover in the last 3 years.
    Sending a lot of work to Mexico and laying off a lot of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with the employees about the true direction of the Chandler organization, instead of just giving the people only what you want them to know at the time.

    Pros

    Goodrich provides a pretty significant tuition assistance program, as well as offers a number of health plans. Management is pretty flexible when it comes to needing time off

    Cons

    If you expect to get a promotion for doing good work- You are in for a suprise. Promotions are based more upon time of service, rather than effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many levels of middle management. Employees often feel like their voices aren't heard, and don't matter. Senior management needs to embrace the People philosophy

    I have been working at Goodrich

    Pros

    Goodrich has many different business units and a wide variety of places and things to work on. That is probably the best thing about Goodrich.

    Cons

    Because Goodrich is really made up of a bunch of companies they have purchased over the past 20 years since exiting the tire business the company really has no identity. Its just a holding or investment company. There is a vast difference between the individual businesses and the treatment of people vary greatly as well. Some place people are well treated and at others they are treated unfairly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turn up the heat on the Goodrich People Philosophy. It is clearly needed because of how some people have been treated.
