    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay’s well. Unfortunately, Pros end there.

    Cons

    - Top down command and control
    - Old school mindsets on how people are “managed”
    - Blame culture from the top
    - Manufacturing organization is toxic with little respect for their people. Senior Leaders often share profanity laced talk. That trickles down throughout the organization as ok.
    - CEO often mislead and left in dark about what is really going on by America’s Region Leaders

    Advice to Management

    Company is broken. No chance of improving with the current inner circle of senior leaders. One of world’s greatest brands stuck in mediocrity. Sad!
