    Pros

    Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company has world wide brand recognition. Someone did a study once that something like ninety percent of people on earth associated Goodyear with tires. That is priceless.

    Cons

    Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company is an old and insular company. It is run by mid level mangers interested chiefly in kingdom building. They do not care for nor engage employees appropriately. If you manage to hitch your career to the right coat tails you can go far but that is dangerous to. Middle to upper management will openly tell you and they are all one mistake from being kicked right out the door.

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

    Pros

    Compensation is among the best in the industry. Most people who work there are very nice and helpful. Job security.

    Cons

    They feel that they pay you well enough that they own you- your time, your opinions and your thoughts. There is a very rigid line of communication up the hierarchy. Those who are put in the position to talk to management are those who are willing to have their ideas and opinions told to them by others.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to new ideas. Listen to all employees- not just the "yes men". If you don't you won't know what is really going on.
