Pros

Toro is a traditional, down-to-earth company. Many employees have worked there 20+ years. Toro's top priorities are creating a family-oriented, caring work culture, serving the customer (especially for distributor and dealer base), and manufacturing quality products. You will find a good work-life balance here, and most managers and leaders are approachable.

Cons

Not an ideal environment for younger employees (Gen X & Y) who like a more progressive work culture. Toro is not forward-thinking in some ways like allowing employees to work from home, keeping up with technology, or “green” manufacturing. It's also a surprisingly "flat" organization, so there is limited growth in certain departments like marketing and sales. It is a Grow Lean company, which has huge advantages on the manufacturing side, but on the business side, the workforce seems too lean.

Advice to Management

Be open to non-traditional ways of working and thinking - especially to attract and retain younger employees. Trust newer, outside-the-box approaches, even if not "tried and true" in the Toro culture.

    Pros

    Employee oriented, very little waste so most corporate positions are safe in the worst economic situations.

    Cons

    Below average pay-wise, and in the I.T. area, there is very little management transparency or involvement with the employees. Which is creating a culture of unease, and it's beginning to take it's toll on the employees. There may be a mass turnover once the economy improves.

    Advice to Management

    The "Toro Culture" is beginning to disappear, and many of the reasons that people have historically stuck with Toro over higher paying companies(i.e. benefits, feeling a part of the mission) are disappearing with it; be careful.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Great products. Average pay, good benefits.

    Cons

    The company is running very lean. Functional groups are purposely setup with conflict in mind for the purpose for working together to find the best solution, but the result is friction, frustration and slow results.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen the reigns on manpower a little, give people the time to do their jobs
