    Pros

    very strong company, good benefits, decent grow potential.

    Cons

    Policies are very strict in a way that the employee are exposed to a 1800 number where any person can call and they can terminate you without good evidence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    leadership is poor, and believe more in gossips than evidences.

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

    Pros

    The company provides job stability and a lot of options for lateral or vertical movement, if you're willing to wait. There are many different fields that Goodyear operates in and many work options within each.

    Cons

    Overall company culture is male-dominant and traditional because of the nature of the business. Goodyear is an industrial company and the majority of people that are with the company have been in the tire industry for the majority of their career. The company is a very large ship and it changes direction slowly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having worked with local Goodyear stores on the ground level as well as the corporate office, it's clear that there's a disconnect between the two. Having an advisory team comprised of individuals that work on the center/customer level day-to-day could provide valuable insights to upper-level management who make number based decisions. It's hard to get a full perspective of impact decisions if you don't operate in the field.

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - great culture
    - everyone likes to get to know everyone in the office (Canadian Office)
    - great salary package and compensation, Defined Benefit retirement plan, not too many companys doing that anymore
    - many opportunities to grow, if willing to move to Akron, Ohio, not too many or at all in Canadian office

    Cons

    - Company has been doing well since 2008 downturn, but continues to have layoffs as a cost cutting measure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - because of the numerous opportunities to grow, theres alot of people changing jobs within the company in Akron. Transition between people needs to be better, doesnt seem like person changing moving out of the position trains the person coming in very well enough to ensure a smooth transition

    Pros

    Good paying salary, great benifits we work 12 hr rotation shifts so you only work 14 days a month lots of time off.

    I work with a great bunch of people and that really makes your job

    Cons

    Cutbacks in order to save money sometimes means things don't get fixed right away

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that you have forgotten the basics when it comes to the floor decisions at times you need to remember where you came from and how you got where you are.

    Remember Back to basics

    Pros

    Company has provided opportunities for growth in a positive, success oriented atmosphere. The organization is constantly looking to innovate and values our input.

    Cons

    No substantial complaints. Can work long hours at times, but this is typically a matter of me wanting to get more accomplished than being mandated by my management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building upon the success we have experienced over the the last few years.
