    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - great culture
    - everyone likes to get to know everyone in the office (Canadian Office)
    - great salary package and compensation, Defined Benefit retirement plan, not too many companys doing that anymore
    - many opportunities to grow, if willing to move to Akron, Ohio, not too many or at all in Canadian office

    Cons

    - Company has been doing well since 2008 downturn, but continues to have layoffs as a cost cutting measure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - because of the numerous opportunities to grow, theres alot of people changing jobs within the company in Akron. Transition between people needs to be better, doesnt seem like person changing moving out of the position trains the person coming in very well enough to ensure a smooth transition

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good paying salary, great benifits we work 12 hr rotation shifts so you only work 14 days a month lots of time off.

    I work with a great bunch of people and that really makes your job

    Cons

    Cutbacks in order to save money sometimes means things don't get fixed right away

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that you have forgotten the basics when it comes to the floor decisions at times you need to remember where you came from and how you got where you are.

    Remember Back to basics

    Pros

    The pay is good, the benefits are acceptable, the onsite amenities for HQ are very good. Some managers are great to work for.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic mess for management chain. Too many managers, too much hierarchy, too many people need to be involved in decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slim down the hierarchy.

    A tale of two companies

    Former Employee - Engineer in Akron, OH (US)
    Former Employee - Engineer in Akron, OH (US)

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

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are above average. There are many opportunities and careers in which to seek, and the company is large.

    Cons

    The above opportunities are there if one is willing to deftly navigate very political waters. The company says that it is trying to be a fresher, more modern company but still has an ego and an old-school mentality. There is a large schism between what the company says in terms of valuing the employee and work-life balance and what the realities are in terms of how individuals are treated and rewarded. The two are not the same and there is a contradiction almost to a point of hypocrisy as to what is "said" and what is "done"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Really listen. Stand up for the employee when they need the support. Upper-middle management, don't make management afraid to speak up for themselves or the individual contributors who report to them.
