    I worked at Toray Composites

    Pros

    A very nice atmosphere to work in because people are friendly and the benefits are good. The surrounding area is nice as Seattle is a short drive away.

    Cons

    Not much to say here. Some cultural disconnect with the Japanese expats, but I enjoyed that aspect of working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Can be a good place to work. Very management heavy and they change their mind on the direction to go at a drop of a hat

    I worked at Toray Composites full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The workers. It was like an extended family. That is all changing now.

    Cons

    It is not a secure place to work. You can be fired in an instance just because someone in management doesn't like you. Say you are not doing a good job, but can't tell you what they want you to change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Way too management heavy.

    I worked at Toray Composites full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits,secure job,Steady work,room for advancement if your in the cool group and if your not they shun you .

    Cons

    Not very safe,work with dangerous chemicals, very boring,people talk behind your back, a lot of stuck up people not a pleasant place to work that is why they have such a huge turnover ,they have about a 50% turnover and that say's theres something wrong when that many people quit or get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care alittle more about how you treat your employees and don't be so high and mighty and treat people like a person and not a number.

    I worked at Toray Composites as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people, and a fun atmosphere to work in. Everybody is willing to help you out, and barbecues/parties happen frequently. Company is very multicultural with the Japanese ties. Production workers and office workers get along very well and there doesn't seem to be much of a wall between the groups.

    Cons

    Promotion from within is great for some positions. Others, not so much. Also, too conservative with approach to cost savings. Management is very top heavy. Also, need to have more trust in lower level managers. If CEO, say no, then its a no. Really missed out on tons of potential improvements because of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to try new things.
