    Pros

    Decent above average pay when hired but little or no raises after. No bonuses

    Cons

    No a place for people who do not play politics and tolerate the BS. Old and existing emplyees dont like to be questioned, criticized, or New and better ideas mentioned to them. The supervisors, listen to the old existing emplyees and not the New ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage new employees to voice their ideas and actually listen when they get really good ones

    I worked at Goodyear full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some of the people are good to work with. The upper management lack concern for some of employees, the hourly associates had more perks the midlevel associates.

    Cons

    No life out of work! The hours are long, no system for midlevel associates to call out, vacation replacement did not exist. Leadership lack the necessary management skills to run a section or manage people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the" good ole boy" system in place. let people progress according to their talents and education level!

    Pros

    I liked the manufacturing environment. Lots of new challenging obstacles to navigate.

    Cons

    So slow. Even when solutions were proposed, it would take forever to implement or get approved, union was a problem.

    Pros

    It is always different and it will use your problem solving skills to the extreme. The employees are friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the hourly employees more as they have a vast amount of knowledge as to what will work. Promote those managers that have the necessary experience and will fill the positions with the necessary traits to make them excel at the position.

    Pros

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

    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.
