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

    Pros

    Strong Brand Name and market share.
    Stable work environment, low risk of layoff.
    Lots of room to grow in such a huge organization.

    Cons

    Contrary to the market at large, if you stay in Goodyear, you will be on a slow track to advancement. Managers actively try to slow down the progress of those beneath them.
    Creativity is laughed at.
    Buddies promote each other…
    No one wants to buy tires, consumers only purchase tires when they have to and are generally unhappy about it and not well informed tire consumers. Market response is similar to commodities. Therefore money inside the company is sparse.
    New renovations are cheap and trendy. I feel like my desk is in an overly lighted hallway now.
    Auto manufacturers demand fuel economy to meet govt regulations, but in tire design that compromises traction and tread wear.
    Initial pay is good, but raises are slow and meager.
    They steal 3 days of what is presented as vacation and use it during plant shutdown in December.
    Goodyear tolerates poor management styles, someone upstairs should read The No A55hole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't by Robert I. Sutton

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so afraid to take a risk promoting an employee.
