    Pros

    Prestigious company and they offer great benefits as well as room to grow within the company. There are many opportunities to move around the organization as well.

    Cons

    I think if I have to give an example. The only downside is that the company needs to be a little bit more organized in terms of standards.

    Advice to Management

    I think that the company as a whole is on the right track. Innovation and staying ahead of the competition is key to success.

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time

    Pros

    Pay is high out of school when factoring in cost of living, lots of experienced people to learn from, leadership is accessible if you make an effort to ask them questions or give suggestions

    Cons

    Not a great place to meet young people out of school as most coworkers will be at least mid career, working in a business so heavily dependent on the economy can lead to tough circumstances
