    Pros

    Wonderful Human Resources Available, good tech's

    Cons

    Not all middle management had the skills to motivate properly,,,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to check themselves, if a store is doing well with a certain of person, bring him in, discuss his method and have HIM train those who manage by intimidation. This unfortunately seems to be a path many firms are not following up on.
    When your turnover in a certain area is high, generally there needs to be an investigation. Find the answers and increase your revenue.

    I have been working at Goodyear as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    You will never be under trained. There are tons of opportunities to earn certifications, take classes, and learn new skills. The headquarters is beautiful with tons of amenities (gym, amazing cafeteria, clinic, starbucks, a mini kitchen on each floor). This was the best place to be starting out my career because I am able to learn so much from the classes and the people around me. Also, this is an exciting time for Goodyear because they are steadily growing, so I feel like that can only bring with it more opportunities.

    Cons

    It is a massive corporation... so if you are planning on climbing the corporate ladder, be prepared for a long climb. Its easy to get lost in a company this large.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that there is a legitimate need for an intern before you hire one... there is nothing worse than having people sit around twiddling their thumbs, for both the employee and the employer.

    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.

    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.
