    Pros

    very strong company, good benefits, decent grow potential.

    Cons

    Policies are very strict in a way that the employee are exposed to a 1800 number where any person can call and they can terminate you without good evidence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    leadership is poor, and believe more in gossips than evidences.

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company provides job stability and a lot of options for lateral or vertical movement, if you're willing to wait. There are many different fields that Goodyear operates in and many work options within each.

    Cons

    Overall company culture is male-dominant and traditional because of the nature of the business. Goodyear is an industrial company and the majority of people that are with the company have been in the tire industry for the majority of their career. The company is a very large ship and it changes direction slowly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having worked with local Goodyear stores on the ground level as well as the corporate office, it's clear that there's a disconnect between the two. Having an advisory team comprised of individuals that work on the center/customer level day-to-day could provide valuable insights to upper-level management who make number based decisions. It's hard to get a full perspective of impact decisions if you don't operate in the field.

    Pros

    Company has provided opportunities for growth in a positive, success oriented atmosphere. The organization is constantly looking to innovate and values our input.

    Cons

    No substantial complaints. Can work long hours at times, but this is typically a matter of me wanting to get more accomplished than being mandated by my management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building upon the success we have experienced over the the last few years.

    I worked at Goodyear full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay and good benefits. Excellent 401k plan. Great people, products and top notch systems. Excellent leadership. Great strategic plan and vision. Great ethics. Great CEO.

    Cons

    Heavy debt obligations consumed a lot of cash generated by operations which limited amount of cash that could be deployed for growth. However that was improving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to execute strategic plans. Continue to increase efforts to empower employees. Invest more in plants.

    I worked at Goodyear

    Pros

    The best in the industry, excellent training facilities for a person that is just starting out with the tire industry. The product manufactured by the company is the top of the line. I have sold the Goodyear product as an independent sales man for many years and have not had too many disappointed customers.

    Cons

    The company produces an inferior product and expect the consumer to accept the new and improved product without any reservations. The company should have the same philosophy with previous employees especially when the infraction was over a decade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be open minded with their previous employees as they expect the consumer to be with their products.
