    I have been working at Toshiba America Business Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a stable job that is relatively low stress. You can get your work done and go home and live a normal life. I never worked a weekend and rarely had to work more than a 45 hour work week.

    Cons

    Kind of a depressing building. Seems like an attitude of "The Mondays" is every day in many of the departments. A general attitude to expect not very good quality work also. No perks, no 401k matching, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The building is so split up that it's very hard to tell your department is part of the company. Definitely feel like an outcast.

    Stick with managers for for than a few months. Causes disruption with turnover.

    Pros

    The Toshiba name is know world wide for quality and can help when you are out making 50 cold calls a day. The office laptops are good and the office is clean. The office administrative staff is seasoned.

    Cons

    The branch manager will say anything and promise the world to get people to join. His pre hire story is one of great goals and hope. The reality is that once you get on board and realize you can't make any money, he gets upset when questions are asked about " all the people who succeed or the job he promised". The current customer base is very small and moving away from Toshiba. The morale of the reps is awful. The sales bull pin is filled with people complaining behind the managers back about the quota and lack of support. The support people are new or overworked. Do not sign a document without getting the quota, territory and all the promises in writing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should have HR involved in the hiring process to keep the manager from tricking people to sign up. Updated your training program from the 1970's bull pin practices. The sales team matters.
