    Pros

    Great product. The company really cares about producing the best product in the market.

    Cons

    Unqualified people getting promoted based on friendships and not on qualifications. This leads to a lack of viable strategy and poor culture. Because these leaders are not qualified, the seemingly tell half truths to cover their ineptness.

    Hire qualified people. Not friends.

    I worked at Bridgestone Americas (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    High earnings potential; lifelong relationship development with co-workers and patrons; fast-paced environment

    Cons

    Poor home/ work balance; pay low for work load and compared to other retail management. Corporate has poor understanding of store operations thereby implementing tedious and ineffective operational strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Stop brining in so many people from outside the company. They have zero understanding of retail outlet operations and lack the loyalty that made this company what it is. They come in, make a bunch of changes then move on leaving the rest to deal with picking up the pieces.
