    I have been working at Toro Company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Toro identifies individuals with potential to be promoted and gives them the tools to succeed. There is very low turnover at the company as people take pride in what they do and who they work for. They take care of their employees and management is accessible all the way up to the CEO. They are quick to reward success.

    Cons

    Toro is not quick to terminate employment, even if some people deserve it. You may find yourself picking up the slack.

    I worked at Toro Company

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and benefits. They treat the employees well and the people are great to work with. They run a very organized business and are receptive to ideas for improvements and efficiencies. Many great training opportunities. Overall, the only company I would work for again. I wish I had never left.

    Cons

    Difficult to get promoted because no one leaves. Wish there had been the option for lateral moves to get more diverse busines exposure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, was impressed with management and leadership. There was a lot of focus on developing employees and giving the skill sets needed to be good leaders in the organization.

    Great Company to work for and they place a strong value in employees

    It is easy to get lost in the shuffle and it is hard to understand how some of the Senior and Middle Management keep their jobs

    Look everywhere within the organization for the next management group. Sometimes the best is right under your nose.
