    Pros

    good location in Orange County.

    Cons

    Where to begin... cubes that are 6x6 with no sunlight, parking is horrendous, complete restructure of the benefits and salary without a warning, have to reapply for your own position. toshiba is scrambling to figure out how to save money and its thru cutting employee benefits/salary. I would not doubt if they just pack up and leave Irvine in a few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give up the US market.

    Pros

    Able to work on some intereting projects and technology. Benefits were good. They try to retain employees.

    Cons

    Direct management. Lack of clear goals and objectives. Many people have been there a long time, so it is difficult to move up / be promoted.

    Pros

    Toshiba is a great palce if you are looking for a compnay to stay at for 20 plus years. Once you are in, stay focused and next thing you know it's been 10 years, then 15 and so on. It's a secure job.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement and most employees have done the same job for 10+ years. With that said most employees don't care to advance and jsut want to do the smae thing forever and it's a great fit if that's what you want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being creative and don't steal your employees ideas. Management is all about CYA and that's gets old real fast.

    Pros

    The Japanese people are amazing outside the office. They are very invigorating with their thirst for adventure and american knowledge.

    Cons

    Throat cutting and back stabbing by of all people ... management! Supervisors taking credit for their employees good jobs or ideas. Blame and finger pointing when times are bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have not worked there for some time now however, seems like nothing has changed. WOW!

    Cons

    -micro-management, heavily scrutinized
    - overworked, small teams, no work/life balance, FTE on vacation needed to bring laptops
    - management likes to talk down on employees, low morale in teams.
    - not so innovative technology for a global company, data center was small and ran hot.

    - no growth for the mind and $$
    - lays off are present too
    - Lead Windows Administrator was very difficult to work with: ( abrasive attitude, Intimidating)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better and don't run a " too lean" shop. Hire more people to cut down the stress load. Hire a new " Lead Windows Admin/Engineer !!!

    Pros

    If you live in Orange County , CA Nice because behind Irvine Spectrum and located near freeways, shopping, dining, good area.
    Decent computer and consumer electronics.

    Cons

    Company runs " lean " and individuals especially in IT wear many hats.
    Employees are unhappy and disgruntled
    IT employees have to be on-call when on vacation. Need to bring laptop, broadband card, cannot vacation overseas. Management will disapprove.
    Direct managers treat team members with disrespect.
    No work and life balance at all. It's always work
    IT Technology is poor coming from a global company like Toshiba
    Server room is unorganized and below ITIL standards.
    As a contractor, one will never know when can go permanent
    Windows team is understaffed ( two ppl) and have to do too much work.
    Too cheap to invest in technology that will make IT more productive and easier for staff
    " Don't work there! " to anyone unless you are really desperate for a job.
    Windows team lead is the epitome of someone " one can not work and co-exist with. "

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and make your teams larger. Don't be condescending and treat your team members with respect.
