Pros

Great balance between work and life. 9/80 is wonderful and people are respectful of one another. Location is fantastic and industry is interesting.

Cons

The soul of the company seems to be eroding with weaker management left behind along with lifers. Those looking to make a positive change are often crushed by fear or the weight of red tape. You must conform. Could be more efficient, but that is not the corporate culture right now. Frustrating to see so much sourcing out to suppliers that are taking advantage of weak managers.

Advice to Management

Review your sourcing strategy and give stronger associates a chance to rise. Hold resources accountable. Expect more from your managers. You need to go with a 360 review so you understand who is just managing up...but it sounds like you may not really want to know.

    Very unfulfilling due to a lack of monetary recognition for sales generated.

    Pros

    Great products. Health Benefits Package. Company's focus on the customer.

    Cons

    Lack of compensation for sales generation. I led the Customer Relations Department in Dealer Referrals, and Dealer Referrals that turned into actual sales, for 9 months straight. Received absolutely no compensation for it. Toyota claims that each person who purchases a vehicle generates several 100s of 1000s of dollars in lifetime revenue. This includes vehicles purchased, service, and referrals to family and friends.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people for their performance. Don't group all employees together. If an employee performs exceptionally, pay them for it. Don't just give a "paper" award.

  2. Great place to launch a post MBA career

    Pros

    Cars, Cars, Cars... Great deal for managers and above

    Worksite was like a campus - you could drop off dry cleaning, pick-up a b-day card, work-out and eat all on campus.

    Cons

    One negative is that there are some "lifers" that may not be that talented and even as a young manager you can start to feel the "golden handcuffs" (and therefore not leave for other roles at other firms).

    Advice to Management

    Largely - keep up the good work. I thought they had a fair review process and accelerated talented folks into more senior roles rather quickly.
