    I worked at Goodyear (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay. Some good associates.

    Cons

    Management cares nothing for workers. This company uses H-1B visas to fill as many positions as possible with cheap labor from overseas. They use these visas to fill jobs in engineering, technology and accounting for which there are many qualified American citizens.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be evil.

    I worked at Goodyear full-time

    Pros

    Most people are good to work with. LOTS of pride in the work performed. World's largest aircraft tire manufacturing facility. Located in mid-southern U.S.

    Cons

    Company is run using 1970's management techniques and style. This plant was built in 1964, and in some cases it feels like the original equipment is still in use. Unionized and proud of it. Money is tighter than the high string in a grand piano. Procedures and processes aren't enforced, leading to huge amount of unnecessary waste Equipment is not maintained. Salaried personnel are OVERWORKED

    Advice to Management

    quit expecting more out of people and equipment than is possible. Invest some money into facilities and equipment and follow your own procedures instead of spending energy and time trying to evade and avoid responsibilities.

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time

    Pros

    Excellent work environment both in terms of the facilities at the Akron HQ and the professionalism of my colleagues. About 60% of my peers in the marketing field have external CPG experience, the other 40% have been hired from within, this provides for a good combination of experiences Good and frequent two way communications with managers up to two levels above me, less frequent but still meaningful communications from higher level VPs. Interesting projects and initiatives. Initial on-boarding training is excellent, usually you get a colleague assigned to guide you through the details of your position.

    Cons

    Low diversity at the VP and Director level, and to a certain degree in mid-management. After initial onboarding ends, most training is online with limited opportunities for in-person training.

    I worked at Goodyear full-time

    Pros

    For the amount of service I had at the time, I would say vacation time and benefits.

    Cons

    Service meant nothing. Management favoritism. Management not treating everyone fairly. To many cliques.

    Advice to Management

    Be loyal to your employees. You would have not gotten to where you are now if not for them.
