    Pros

    I worked for TAIS for almost three years. During my time there I enjoyed my job and the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult to get things accomplished in a timely manner as many people are "afraid" to speak up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up the line of communications from all employees without fear they will be reprimanded.

    Pros

    Great People, dedicated, hard working and all have the desire to contribute and work to make the company shine and be profitable. Talented with commitment to the company.

    Cons

    Focused only on PC with all other product groups getting little support. Trapped in managing all areas thru Japan and their antiquated processes that move to slow for he CE industry.
    Low morale as the senior management does very little to improve the work environment. Willing to force employees to either take it as is or you can head out the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With those that are remaining or choose to stay, do more to improve the work environment since it is all the employees have. They are working under extreme pressure while under resourced in a lot of areas. Restructuring the organization every 6 months is not helping the employees to better enjoy coming to work.

    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.

    I worked at Toshiba America Info

    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!
