    Pros

    Absolutely phenomenal working conditions educational level for advancement and teammates. From my first impressions very professional and definitely an industry leader their ethics seem un- surpassed in the industry!

    Pros

    Very nice staff. I even made some friends there.
    Compensation was not great but the work-life balance was great.

    Cons

    It was not a fast-paced environment. Most of staffs were neither motivated nor efficient. They were sleep walking until 5pm when the clock rang.

    I have been working at Bridgestone Global full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and great benefits. Strong global company with lots of orders. Lots of team activities. Still having company parties and picnics.

    Cons

    High amount of turnover. Seems to be in a stage of benefits take away and cost cuts. The team spirit seems to be fading.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication of the companies situation. Explain more clearly the need to cut cost to be more competitive in the global market place.

    Pros

    Interesting systems and applications, many complex, global business processes

    Cons

    Projects can be with tight schedules & budgets

    Advice to Management

    The complexity of systems and integrated nature of hybrid solutions require deep knowledge and skill, which cannot always be accomplished in a quality manner using "plug & play" consultants.

    Pros

    Extremely clean work environment. Equipment is top notch and well maintained. Good vacation and sick time benefits. Job is secure and pay is OK.

    Cons

    In it's quest to become a "Premier Place to Work", the management of the facility has fallen flat on it's face. Promises of providing better work life / home life balance has been unsuccessful. Mandatory overtime and long hours are still the norm. No opportunity for advancement unless you are in the clique. Poor job performance by "ethnics" seems to be overlooked coupled with a horrible extortion of temporary employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire QUALITY people to help with the workload. Monitor internet usage by on floor supervision. Facebook and dating site use seem highly inappropriate when they should be "supervising". Start listening to instead of just hearing what employees are saying.

    Pros

    work load is low for specific departments, the office location is very good, next to people's square, the center of downtown. good restaurants are around the office.

    Cons

    compensation is extremely low compared with the industry average. people like to spend a lot of time on office politics.

    Advice to Management

    raise the compensation, build corporation culture, give the young people more chances instead of suppressing them at low level.
