Favoritism abounds. Retaliation for trivial disagreements the standard.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I worked at Toshiba full-time for more than a year

ProsGiveways and prizes are handed out randomly. That keeps them fair.

ConsLong hours. Little appreciation. Demanding and moody management. What have you done for me lately mindset kills any feeling of accomplishment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

TIC is an Outstanding Division

Kansas City, KS

I worked at Toshiba full-time for more than 10 years

ProsKey word is...WORK. Be able to consistently be a team player. Very easy to get along with management and other employees.

ConsAgain the key word is WORK. Anyone coming into the organization as a ..."slacker"... did not stay long.

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow your ..."Founder's"...roots.

Intern

R&D Intern (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Toshiba as an intern for less than a year

ProsVery relaxed environment, people are nice. I heard that they do not lay anyone off unless they have done something very wrong. Hiring a lot of people.

ConsLack of responsibilities, and feel insignificant. Some systems are old, and projects are slow. They are trying to improve to a new system.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore involvement with interns, assign mentor.

Ridiculous. Stay away at all costs.

Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee)
Milwaukee, WI

I have been working at Toshiba full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCan't think of a single one.

ConsCompletely unorganized. Does not take the US market seriously. Bonuses have steadily decreased over time. Health insurance costs are skyrocketing, and at the same time the coverage is decreasing. 16% cost increase for 2012. 10% cost increase for 2013. Coverage got much worse in both years. Dental and vision care are terrible. 0 career development. Little chance for promotion or cross-movement. Seems to be getting worse.
Management needs to be all fired.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
