Underutilization of my experience

Human Resources Specialist (Current Employee)
Sun Prairie, WI

I have been working at Goodyear Engineered Products

ProsGood work/life balance
Smaller facility in comparison to other Veyance plants
Engaged management workforce
Very good relationship with union/hourly workforce

ConsNot a warm cozy feeling with management team
Way too much interference from the corporate office
Expand the salaried wage ranges so they are competitive with other companies in each geographical area.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow the plants to run autonomously
Instead of only concentrating on the dollars as part of an equity investment company, spend time on issues with the people

My experience with this company was mostly satisfying until I realized there wouldn't be future opportunities for me.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Goodyear Engineered Products

ProsLocal leadership at plant manufacturing level communicated well with employees and kept them informed of current business conditions on a daily basis. The facility does a good job of prioritizing orders and works hard to maintain customer satisfaction. Their business was relatively strong in 2009 and grew incrementally in 2010 to be the strongest year in that plant's history.

ConsLocal leadership at the facility level was great, however corporate group did not value plant experience, resulting in a complete lack of development, growth, or promotional opportunities within the company. The company downsized staff departments but did not streamline the work flow or processes leading to overworked and frazzled employees at the local level while corporate staffing was being increased, but was not competent in handling day to day issues for the facilities and did not respond to facilities needs in a timely manner.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
