    I have been working at Bridgestone Americas full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall good company with decent benefits and excellent "profit" based bonus program. Top management is first rate and seem to have both vision and ability to make that vision reality.

    Cons

    Mid management...CSO, CIO, CFO level...seem to depend more on external consultants and with frequent revolving door, the "vision" changes every 3 or 4 years. IT organization seems to have a hard time realizing it's own potential and communications, despite efforts to improve and be more transparent, seems to be worse now than ever. Recent re-org efforts seemed to turn into a house clearing despite communication to the contrary so the credibility of current management is not very high. Efforts to attain a "Premiere Place to Work" designation seem to have become a platform to drive management objectives and vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrity at the top is a great thing, but if the overall methodology of implementing change creates an atmosphere of distrust and reflects a dependency on outside resources to provide basic managerial guidance, then that management is both ineffective and paralyzing. However, change has been all too frequent. It's time to hold fast to a direction and fulfill a vision that everyone can believe in.
