I worked at Bridgestone Americas full-time (More than a year)
Analyst's are given a lot of autonomy in choosing how they work. High level decision making. Significant cultural improvement from 2017-2019. Great management team, friendly co-workers, and employees are allowed to work from home once or twice per week. Very competitive compensation rate and annual raises may be as high as 4% per year for high performing teammates. Teammates are allowed to move around as they grow their careers at the company.
Bridgestone is a company that is generally low on direction. For new employees it may take 6 months for one to figure out what their job will be. The process of integrating new teammates into the fabric of most teams at Bridgestone is virtually non-existent. Many employees are typically working in their own silo. It wouldn't be uncommon for an employee to be the only person in their department to know the ERP system they use. Working hours can be a little long here especially if on a high priority project. Employer 401(k) match is only vested at the 3 year mark for employees. This is a con because many employees won't make it to the 3 year mark to take advantage of the employer's contribution in their retirement plan.
Advice to Management
Dial back the red tape and be more proactive in helping employees manage their workloads. Decrease the amount of time it takes to be vested in the 401(k). Lastly, stop the email forwarding culture.
