Pros

Toshiba Japan engineers and manufactures some of the best products on the market. Tons of research and thought go into each and every product and they are not thrown together like other PC companies.

Cons

No room for growth within the organization. Poor communication from Director level down to business unit managers who "actually" run the business. Incompetence in senior level managers bogging down the business with no focus on business at hand but only concerned with their own personal gain.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire VP, Directors and Senior Managers who have the ability to run the business. Cut out the individuals who do not add value to the company. Promote and reward individuals who outperform others within the company. Focus on products that people in the US want versus what Toshiba Japan wants to sell.

    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 Outdated technology prevents employees from being effective.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.
