    I worked at Goodyear full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They do have a blimp

    Cons

    If it doesnt happen in Akron, they dont know what's going on. While the peopke who run the company might be smart, they would do better if they didn't try to micromanage their commercial and retail locations. What works in the big city doesn't necessarily work in rural or smaller cities/towns.

    Advice to Management

    Common sense goes a long way. Also take an interest in the communities your stores and plants are in, you'll get more local business if you're engaged in the community. There is a great big world outside of Akron.

    Pros

    There is a lot of interesting and challenging work here, and some fun people too. With the right group you can learn a lot and get some cool things accomplished.

    Cons

    There are many, many poor leaders of others. The company doesn't seem to value people or hold leaders accountable for good leadership behaviors. The focus is extremely short-term. Also, the IT systems are lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Hold leaders accountable for their behaviors, take chances on people and focus more on development.

    I worked at Goodyear full-time

    Pros

    Goodyear is a brand, built by some really great visionary people in past. They always believed in building business with great team and culture. They dared to voice their opinion for the right and took decisions without self - interest. However, this is past. Future depends on how existing LEADERS Think, behave and act on Culture, People and business. It will be interesting to watch if existing leaders continue to live in fool’s paradigm or wake up to accept the reality. There is still a ray of hope though.

    Cons

    Past is no guarantee of future. Change is inevitable – sooner or later. Culture is sliding towards worst. “Yes” culture edging over “Dare” due to fear of losing. Egos are becoming centric to decisions. Personal equations being valued higher than performance. Follow else fall out is becoming prevalent. Watch dogs are either silent or quiet participants. Voice of opinion is getting threatened by actions. Side discussions becoming different than in front of formal group. Alignment without question has become way to please people. Mouths are shut and lips are sealed. Authority for decision is either negligible or highly restricted. Decisions in shorter groups taking over open discussion culture. Short term decisions, mostly to protect self, threatening to damage long term business prospects. Autocracy causing attrition of great talent across functions. Perception of "Who Cares” attitude raising frustration. Compensation being used as a tool to tap and trap outside talent. Inequality in competence to compensation getting wider.
