Don't come to work at Toshiba if you are driven and motivated and want to get things done your way.

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsIt's good for a person in their mid fifties or anyone else looking to find a place to disappear into the woodwork and earn a steady salary. But if you're a dynamic person looking to get things done, being rewarded more for your hard work etc. you're looking at the wrong place.

ConsEvery decision is controlled by Japan. No room for career advancement from engineering to mgmt / biz dev. Turf oreintated mentality among management. Promotions given more by number of years you served than because of what value you bring to the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a good career plan for your US employees like you do for your Japanese ones. The Japanese guys get rotated into different roles, the promising ones get sent to do an MBA etc. There is nothing like that for promising US employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
