    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.

    The new hires get screwed in every way. If you're a good employee you get treated like crap, harassment is rampant.

    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.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Modern open work environment, free covered parking, on-site gym facilities, concierge service and Goodyear service store pic-up and drop off.

    Cons

    Long hours, mediocre pay, poor raises unless you're in the level that gets bonuses, most don't. Management takes an "I don't care attitude" If you don't like it there's more where you came from. Management doesn't learn from the mistakes of the past but then again there's few left from the past that they can learn from because they've let them all go and they're not availing themselves of the knowledge of the few that are left that could benefit the company in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees! Especially the older ones that have been around and have "Goodyear" experience. Foster mentoring between young and old to pass on this corporate knowledge.

    I worked at Goodyear full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable enough for Akron, pay was okay, a lot of talking.

    Cons

    Very insider group so don't make waves that is for sure, if its a mess don't suggest ways to fix it because you'll be insulting the manager who made the mess and has built their career on it. Moves at the pace of a dinosaur because its stuck in 90's which is IT career death. Nothing modern at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house in IT management, hire people who know how to run modern systems and you will be a lot better off.
