    Pros

    If you live in Orange County , CA Nice because behind Irvine Spectrum and located near freeways, shopping, dining, good area.
    Decent computer and consumer electronics.

    Cons

    Company runs " lean " and individuals especially in IT wear many hats.
    Employees are unhappy and disgruntled
    IT employees have to be on-call when on vacation. Need to bring laptop, broadband card, cannot vacation overseas. Management will disapprove.
    Direct managers treat team members with disrespect.
    No work and life balance at all. It's always work
    IT Technology is poor coming from a global company like Toshiba
    Server room is unorganized and below ITIL standards.
    As a contractor, one will never know when can go permanent
    Windows team is understaffed ( two ppl) and have to do too much work.
    Too cheap to invest in technology that will make IT more productive and easier for staff
    " Don't work there! " to anyone unless you are really desperate for a job.
    Windows team lead is the epitome of someone " one can not work and co-exist with. "

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and make your teams larger. Don't be condescending and treat your team members with respect.

    Former Employee - Product Brand Manager in Irvine, CA

    I worked at Toshiba America Info

    Pros

    While nearly all other benifits are gone base pay continues to be higher than most companies at the present time.

    Cons

    No 401K company contribution, no stock options, no bonuses, Canceled company sponsored retirement plan. Reduction in health benefits while increasing employee costs. Due to company being Japan based, most employees are pressured to work until 7pm or later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is well known that management meetings at the top are filled with high pressure and lack of respect for each other in the way they talk to each other. That filters down to the lowest levels as managers treat their subordinates with disrespect in front of their peers. Moral continues to be at an all time low.
