Slow career progress but great people and product

District Manager (Current Employee)

ProsPension, good 401k, lifetime employment (if desired), solid health insurance (but it has declined in recent years), demo vehicles for certain positions.

You can learn a lot about wholesale and dealer operations. The internal support staff employees are awesome people and generally helpfully. Colleauges are very personable, team oriented and there is little fear of backstabbing for the next promotion.

Toyota generally has respect for people and trusts its associates.

ConsPay is not that great for high travel jobs; similar roles in other industries are probably paid 20-100% higher.

Too many people clogging the system (see lifetime employment), upward movement only happens from attrition and rarely from newly created positions. Cream of the crop talent doesn't rise to the top, they leave and then those roles are filled by tenure not aptitude.

Philosophical and communication disconnects between the field offices and TMS (Headquarters).

TMS upper management is not very dynamic or progressive and very reactionary; hopefully the Japanese don't give them too much control because I don't trust they are innovative or can lead the brand into new avenues that the future will necessitate.

Advice to Senior ManagementHope is not a strategy. If you can't find a way to promote young talent, they will leave. They might end up at competitors that offer faster advancement and take the knowledge learned at Toyota and apply it in an organization open to new ideas and innovation.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
