    I have been working at Toyota full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tremendous culture
    Competitive Pay/Benefits package
    Opportunities to do more than just your job
    Growing YP community

    Cons

    Most managers are not good developers of people and talent
    Not very much recognition or appreciation for doing work outside of your scope
    Upper management will very rarely fight for you
    Still behind the times in engaging the YP culture, but catching up quickly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to young professionals
    Foster a more open environment for questions and concerns
    Encourage and support activities that contribute to making the workplace interesting and engaging for all
    Future leaders should be identified on leadership potential and performance, not just the latter.

    I have been working at Toyota full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Toyota values it's associates and has a portfolio of benefits that are quite astounding, from an excellent lease program to health and wellness benefits.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive. Career development and advancement is not optimal. Toyota is very slow to move when it comes to innovation and creating workforce flexibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach - the Toyota Way is not just words on a page, it is a system of beliefs that must drive all behavior. Sitting in your offices with your doors closed does not promote respect for people or continuous improvement.

    Former Employee - Inventory Control in Owings Mills, MD

    I worked at Toyota part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Toyota offers great benefits packages to their associates. Their benefits alone are better than any other organization that I have worked for.

    Cons

    There seemed to be a breakdown in communication between middle management and associates. Pay could be better but I'm sure that's the cost of having such great benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is lacking within departments
