    Excellent starting vacation package (based on industry experience). The health, vision, and dental have good benefits - a little expensive but probably typical for the type of benefits received. Company also allows some flex working hours (dependent on business need and personal situation). 401K match is solid (ipo pension they add extra money to 401K in addition to the normal match). The drawback was movement - some people could move to other departments easily while others were not permitted to move which created some frustration among some employees.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former R&D in Akron, Ohio

    The company closes during the period between Christmas and New Year's and they FORCE you to take vacation for those days. Good luck if you only get 10 days vacation to start, that's really 7 days- they don't tell you that upfront. A week and two days vacation to start? Really?! You can have a PhD - doesn't matter, if you come in with less than five years experience, they start you at 10 days. And no matter what, you have to wait 5 years to get a bump up to 3 weeks vacation, doesn't matter if you had 4 years 11 months of experience coming in, you wait. They are pretty proud of a new maternity leave policy which really just brought them up to a minimally acceptable standard (if that). There is special parking for pregnant women or 'expecting mothers', so that makes up for that. Employee discount is pretty low - 25% off a few sets of tires each year (can give away to friends, family)...every once in a while a 35% discount is sent out - could be to boost sales figures, not sure. There are also no bonuses for people at a level under manager/director - title depends on the structure of the department. At least not on the R&D side.

    Compared to most other companies the same industry, goodyear takes care of their employees' benefits. It is less costly than most.

    Vacation policy was decent, but not incredibly well suited for those with out of town family

    Cost too high, very high deductible

    Health Insurance is great and they have diff tiers. 401(k) matching and options are well rounded. Dental and Vision are great add-ons for small amounts.

    It's not terrible, but associate discounts are slowly going away

    The benefits were competitive for a general fortune 500 company, but they were lacking compared to the petrochemical industry (especially retirement).
