    I worked at Toyota as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great work opportunities, great people to work with in the DC office, and great location of the office over Metro Center. The Toyota Way really values worker input no matter at what level you are at in the company. Got an opportunity to meet the CEO, which was awesome.

    Cons

    A few people can be found abrasive to the rest of the office culture, but it wasn't too bad to deal with, and at the end of the day, wasn't a big deal. At times, I heard of difficulties working with counterparts located in Japan, but my work did not interface with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting from within, and keep on your path towards promoting a strong and tight knit office culture across divisions. I found it to be very good.

    A good place to work.

    I worked at Toyota

    Pros

    The people that work for Toyota were all very friendly and helpful. I never had a problem working with anyone. This he;p[ed to provide an atmosphere that was easy to work in and be productive.

    Cons

    It seemed like i went to a lot of meeting where information was repeated and time was wasted.
    Too much time was spend on trying to get to the root cause of small problem, when a simple solution could have fixed the problem in a lot less time.

    I worked at Toyota full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Toyota offers good pay and benefits (varies between divisions). 13 paid holiday a year, start out accruing a little over 6 hours of vacation per month, 5 paid sick days and 3 paid personal day per year. Good medical/dental/vision.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics one must deal with working with this company. Poor communication between corporate and facility, between management and supervision, and between supervision and hourly associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They won't take it, lol.

    No opinion of CEO
