I have been working at Bridgestone Americas

Pros

Some managers are good and fair. Some departments seem to keep workers challenged, but rewarded. Seems like a relatively stable company.

Cons

Evaluations are not always meaningful, depends on the manager. Promotions and awards seem somewhat random. The environment ncourages the image of competance, rather working together toward a common goal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Many of the older managers need to get over the "good ol' boys club" attitude.

    I have been working at Bridgestone Americas

    Pros

    Very satisfied with my job and peers. Opportunities for advancement are abundant and management treats employees well at the corporate level.

    Cons

    Salary structure could use improvement. Very small raises are given each year - not really enough to cover COL increases so I'm actually losing money year year I work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure salary increase policy. You may be safe during this down economy, but once things improve you WILL lose your best employees to other companies that will pay better and reward employees economically.

    I have been working at Bridgestone Americas

    Pros

    Bonuses and people. The benefits are also ggod and if you preform really well there will be trips and incentives that you cab get, other than that there is no reason to stay at a company like this.

    Cons

    No time for self, there is not a life-workplace balance. The stores are opened seven days a week and store managers are required to work every week-end and can not be off consecqcative days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would tell them that the job is very stressful and they need to give managers more days off and more vacation time. The also need to increase salary and get more training for upper management.
