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

    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.
