    I worked at Bridgestone Americas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Global company
    Positive and optimistic culture throughout; leaders down through entry levels
    International opportunities
    Multiple Business Units
    Personal growth and career succession
    Cross functional engagement style; opportunities from Innovation areas, Product Design, Manufacturing, Distribution, Sales, Marketing, and Business functions
    Competitive Benefits, bonus structure and overall compensation

    Cons

    Recently Bridgestone moved corporate headquarters to Nashville bringing tires, retails, roofing, and diversified product businesses together. The re-location has impacted the experience levels across the business units. Cross business succession has been limited in these early stages.
    Individual develop planning and succession planning are available at Bridgestone; however continued focus and opportunities for improvement should be made available.

    Advice to Management

    Bridgestone introduced Transformational Initiatives and Integrated Business Planning initiatives to guide organizational vision, goals and business decision making. The introduction to these vision - goals - execution will drive results if alignment is strong from Leadership through new teammates. Leadership vision will be the strongest with “One Voice”. Ensure that the Roles of the Road and Bridgestone Essence are always forefront in the Culture & Styles of the organization. In addition; ensure that the teammates sincerely feel value in all that they do and in what you do for them.
