    I have been working at Bridgestone Americas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I recently started working for Bridgestone...and I love it. The new building is amazing- great cafeteria, gym, wellness rooms, outdoor space, meeting rooms, and more. The orientation is very informative and the people all seem invested in the success of the company.

    Cons

    I think there is always room for improvement, but Bridgestone is actively trying to become the best.

    Great people and culture. Excellent opportunity to advance. Overall love it. And the building is beautiful. And lots of opportunity to network with other professionals.

    Lots of people in the building so can be hard to connect with those outside your circle. Wish we had after hours parking in the garage.

    Pros

    The senior leadership and company focus over the last couple of years is really great. They are really listening to people on the front line and very focused on taking the company, and the whole team, on a journey to innovate and stay ahead of competitors.

    Cons

    While the company is not perfect everywhere, the senior leadership has a passion to improve so it makes it a good time to join

    Keep listening to all your teammates, it is making a big difference

    Pros

    The company is on a mission to take care of it's employees and customer's first. I love the challenge of unlocking the door everyday and taking care of my teammates and our Boss'. Your attitude is the key to your success. We are on path to go from good to great. I am excited and can't wait to be a part of it.

    Cons

    We have not held ourselves accountable to this vision that we are on. We most do a better job of caring, training, managing and rewarding all teammates. We are all accountable to our Boss'.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working towards your vision. Acknowledge your teammates first, trust in them. They can not be held accountable for what they don't know. Training is the key for all associates.

    Pros

    Compensation, Benefits, Scheduling Flexibility, Inviting Atmosphere, Opportunities for Growth

    Cons

    Lack of Management Development, Underdeveloped Performance Management

    Advice to Management

    Allow teammates to review their peers, supervising roles have inadequate exposure to review and advise effectively. Devote resources to developing teammates in manager positions. In the 3 roles I have held in BATO, each my managers lacked essential skills to manage, grow, inspire, protect or lead their people. They all are well versed in the Tire Business but are terrible managers of people.
