    Promotioanl or lateral opportunities are rare. Typically, outside seems to be the preference.

    Pros

    Although things happen slowly, things do happen, and employees are generally empowered to initiate change and progress. It is fun to come to work. The people at TAIS are easy going. The company does many things to foster employee moral and a feeling of family.

    Cons

    Things happen slowly. There are lots of very hardened silos which are hard to break down to get collaboration. Raises are hard to come by. The MBO program is antiquated.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the silos. A cost of living raise is not a merit increase.

    Pros

    Toshiba is a great palce if you are looking for a compnay to stay at for 20 plus years. Once you are in, stay focused and next thing you know it's been 10 years, then 15 and so on. It's a secure job.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement and most employees have done the same job for 10+ years. With that said most employees don't care to advance and jsut want to do the smae thing forever and it's a great fit if that's what you want.

    Advice to Management

    Try being creative and don't steal your employees ideas. Management is all about CYA and that's gets old real fast.
