"I have worked at Goodyear since the mid 80's. Goodyear has experienced difficulties with Sir James Goldsmith's attempt to take over the company in 87. They then took on a lot of debt when they bought Dunlop (Europe and North America). The performance appraisal has not worked out for me for the last several years. Other than that, I have enjoyed the work that I do. I have had many satisfied customers."

Goodyear Employee
in Topeka, KS

"I worked at Goodyear for 39+ years. They used to care for their employees when I first started. But foreign competitive pressures have created such a tremendous pressure to cut costs that translates into everyone working long hours, long days, long weeks, and long months. With no appreciation, no reward, and no thanks. Corporate managers are taking all the available money from the company in salary and perks while the workers are getting the crumbs that are left over."

"Very bad workplace. Maybe it was my supervisor. But upper management dictated the direction of the technology. Engineers are very frustrated most of the time."

Area Manager

"I've been with Goodyear for over 9 years. The schedule we work at our facility is a rotating 12 HR shift that can be hard but affords ample time off. The work can be very difficult and demanding. The compensation is great for our area . The company provides many recreational and family activities."

"Overall the company is moving in the right direction from a stockholder and investor view. That said, the company still has a lot of legacy systems and politics. This makes it difficult to clearly identify roles and responsibilities and thus impacts decision making. The mid level managers seem to change frequently which also adds to confusion - the same opportunities for lateral movement sometimes does not appear be available for everyone (this appears to be to keep knowledge in a group since managers change so frequently). This is not always beneficial and can sometimes hurt morale because some individuals want to change roles and feel they are stuck making decisions that should be a manager's responsibility without the authority, or proper compensation, to make such decisions."
