    I have been working at Goodyear as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    There appear to be many opportunity within the company for career growth. As an intern I was never stuck doing a single task, always challenging. Management allowed enough space for a comfortable experience, but checked in occasionally to ensure progress was being made.

    Cons

    There were a couple of disappointments for me. They included the lack of low level design. Also I was surprised a how slowly projects can move in a large corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing. I had no problems with any management while I was here. Definitely a good program that has been tuned over the many years its been in place.

    Pros

    Good work environment, fair compensation and you can get a variety of job experience

    Cons

    Lack of internal visibility for job promotions and loyalty does not pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When someone has spend a significant amount of time at one place they can share their deep knowledge with others. When I joined the company two years ago I felt a disconnect between me and veterans. The company should try improve the connection between veterans and new people to help last navigate the environment.

    Pros

    Competitive salary and great benefits

    Cons

    Goodyear culture towards salary employees seem almost hostile, if water cooler conversation is true. I have not personally experienced or witnessed any negative interactions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New hires live in fear. If this is not the desired result, please take measures to correct it.
