Exceptional place to work! Great benefits - great programs - opportunity for advancement!

IT Manager (Former Employee)
Nashville, TN

I worked at Bridgestone Americas full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat people - great products!

ConsHR is in the stone ages when aligning with work schedules - and working remote for certain jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest less in contractors - and more in employees. Employees should be performing the work, rather than instructing contractors what to do. If employees don't have the skills to perform the work - invest in them training wise - and hire people that are flexible in learning new skills. Leverage employees across divisions - have a database of employees - and their skills. Rather than hire a contractor at top dollar - find a Bridgestone employee to come perform the work - even if from another division - it's all one company - use what you have.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
