I have been working at Toyota

Pros

There is a lot of room for growth within the company. It is a great working environment. There is so much to learn and experience.

Cons

There is no downside or negativity working for Toyota. Infact, I see the downside of any given situation is a learning experince that would add more to becoming more successful within the company.

    Cons

    If you want career advancement, McDonalds is probably better. Moving up here is like wading through molasses in Alaska during January. Employees have Career Development Planning that is mostly discouragement and a waste of 1 hour of you and your manager's life every year.

    Respect for Employees is written as a core principle of the company, but in actuality the management would have difficulty defining what this is, let alone provide examples of how it is done.

    Office politics is rampant and decides a fair amount of business decisions, including who is promoted.

    Due to lifetime employment culture, many managers are promoted based on seniority only and can be incompetent and devoid of leadership skills; some cannot even relate to people or make logical business decisions with respect to the bottom line.

    Encouragement and recognition are almost completely non-existent.

    Business practices, technology used, and culture is archaic.

    Country-club type culture is uber politically correct, and any results different than expected is considered "bad news" which is why problems are kept from surfacing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust and respect your Team Members.
    Loosen up and allow Team Members some freedom to operate.
    Develop opportunities for young professionals to rotate to different positions and get promoted within the company and across affilliates (ie Japan, Europe, Asia, South America, etc).
    Leadership development within TEMA needs serious attention.
