    I worked at Goodyear full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    mature processes, large strategic investments inside the company, willing to invest in employees as well, financially stable and opportunities to work internationally

    Cons

    the usual red tape and delays with any large enterprise organization. still a bit of the "good 'ol boy" network in place meaning you'd better suck up to a bunch of them.

    Advice to Management

    go back to the open-idea environment for continuous improvement and no more blaming a department for their inefficiencies. get rid of the need to speak a certain way or be cast out.

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people at the plant level. Good company branding. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Open atmosphere in the HQ is a nightmare to work at. Not enough "huddle rooms" for conversations that are sensitive to the business. Management does not empower the employees. Promotions seem to be limited to those who are political.

    Advice to Management

    It's not about saying the words. It's about the actions. There is no empowerment. Too much bureaucracy to get things done.

    I think management should keep up the good work. they all seem super nice and willing to help me whenever needed.

    I worked at Goodyear (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay. Some good associates.

    Cons

    Management cares nothing for workers. This company uses H-1B visas to fill as many positions as possible with cheap labor from overseas. They use these visas to fill jobs in engineering, technology and accounting for which there are many qualified American citizens.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be evil.

    I worked at Goodyear full-time

    Pros

    For the amount of service I had at the time, I would say vacation time and benefits.

    Cons

    Service meant nothing. Management favoritism. Management not treating everyone fairly. To many cliques.

    Advice to Management

    Be loyal to your employees. You would have not gotten to where you are now if not for them.
