Solid company - difficult work culture
Project Engineer (Former Employee) –  Rome21 October 2017
Bridgestone is a leading tire manufacturing. It is very hierarchical, and changes are slow. The company generally rewards the best employees. However, the culture is not a good fit for everyone.

I dont know how to explain it
Tire Test technician (Current Employee) –  Akron, OH19 October 2017
I would rather work no other place. At the tech level there isn't very much room for advancement. They always try to push you back to school even with no real hopes of advancement once you get a degree or certificate. The test technician job is fun. There is always something to do. It just seems as though you are looked down upon by management for not having a degree.

Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Broken Arrow, OK18 October 2017
Has decent job security with very little advancement opportunities. Upper management has unreasonable expectations of what should be done at times. Most communication is done via email or conference calls, so there is not much in person micromanagement. Overall a decent place to work. It requires long hours, but it is hourly pay plus commission, so at least the long hours get you overtime pay.

Senior Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Muscatine, IA17 October 2017
A typical day work will probably start with a meeting or two. Then proper work assignment start according to ones position. Lunch is taken within the hours of 11:00 to 12:30 am. I have learn a lot about Industrial Management and machinery. The work place culture is very family oriented.

Highly ethical company.
Company's size makes change management very difficult.
Middle management is not appreciated.
Budgeting is a full time job,

Sr. IT Project Manager, PMO (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TN6 October 2017
Watch your back. Strong culture of back biting for personal gains and sadistic pleasure. Management will never let go of a small mistake and will penalize you year after year.

Management is the problem here.
Manager of Tire Sales (Former Employee) –  Harrisburg, PA3 October 2017
Poor management, at least that's the case in the Harrisburg, PA. area. No leadership qualities at all. Bad decisions made on an almost daily basis with no explanation. One would almost surmise he worked for the competition. Otherwise solid company with competitive overall compensation. Regional management appears to have a 3-5 year life span so this may change. I've been in the business for 20+ years and this is the absolute worst management I've ever worked under. The strange part is this is a universally accepted notion that management is the problem but none of the store managers will step up and take action.
Pros
Solid company culture of exceptional customer service.
Cons
Management is poison.
