    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.
