Pros

Best health benefits ever. Competitive salary. Convenient location, right off the 405 freeway. Great cafeteria food and friendly cafeteria staff.

Cons

Almost no opportunity for advancement especially if you are a woman. Human resources works for upper management and conflict resolution is not handled appropriately. Lack of resources is a common problem. Outdated technology prevents employees from being effective.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees. Make sure HR contacts more than just one reference for new hires. Invest in morale building for lower level employees since they do the day to day work. Don't ignore issues until they are serious problems.

    Little chance of getting a permanent position if you are a contractor.

    I worked at Toshiba America Info

    Pros

    Its a nice laid back environment and you don't have to dress up to go to work. I was contractor so I never had any troubles getting time off. I think I could have taken a month off without any troubles. The management understood that it was a temp position and they didn't mind if you looked for another job.

    Cons

    As a contractor there is little to no chance in moving up to a permanent position. You are pretty much stuck where you are at unless a position happens to open up. The pay is ok for a contract position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none

    No opinion of CEO
