    I worked in house in CA for four years. Like many states they have a registered in-house counsel regime whereby one is "admitted" for the sole purpose of providing counsel to one‘s employer. The only requirements are completing the necessary paperwork and getting approved by the state ethics committee. No need to sit for the bar.

    Not to mention the unique issue for lawyers - necessity of bar admission and lack of reciprocity . At least Bridgestone is moving to a reasonable state (TN) - only the junior lawyers would need to re-sit for the bar. I pity any lawyer asked to relocate to California - no reciprocity (plus all of the other issues with CA...).
