    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Bloomington, MN

    I have been working at Toro Company full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people. There are unfavorable people in every company but at Toro there are far more good people that want to help you succeed.
    Good stock performance
    Good product line for the most part

    Cons

    Systems in engineering and around the organization are stitched together with either a poor connection or implemented in a way to match the process defined over a decade ago rather than what is possible and value added for the workflow
    Relies too heavily on tribal knowledge and requires you to become a who you know person in order to perform

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the systems to improve productivity. I estimate engineering systems perform at roughly 35% of optimal.

    I have been working at Toro Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Love the company culture and the working environment. Reasonable expectations from every employee. Toro pushes quality of products, services and employee output.

    Cons

    This Company subsidies pay increases with Company Culture. Great Culture however, long-term employment at Toro does not get the kids thru College. Too many good employees lost to unheard request for pay for performance. Toro “Talks” a good game in regards to opportunity however, for Mid/Senior level management; however, there is little to no movement in your paycheck except for a select group. No Bonus' for Some Mid Managers while others are killing it...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to review Salary Benchmarking Policies.

    I worked at Toro Company as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Gained broad experience with finance and MS Excel.

    Cons

    Toro uses the internship program to fill a need in the summer rather than develop future employees. No full-time offers are made to interns after graduation. Few job openings are created and mainly arise from an old employee leaving
