    If you enjoy working on office equipment as just a technician this is a good place to start.

    I have been working at Toshiba full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    there are literally no pros to working here

    Cons

    no trust
    no respect
    no communication
    no employee engagement
    no morale
    no teamwork
    its horrible. I did not head the warnings when I started and I regret it. the place is corrupt, if you have options, stay away from here. HR is the most corrupt of them all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire real leaders in HR to transform your company and build employee morale. every single person I talk to hates it there and its because of your "management" team.

    co-workers are friendly. Big space

    Cons

    Not enough recognition for the job well done. Too much Politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should be fair and reward those good performers well in order to keep them.
    Don't be prejudice and learn to accept and recognize people with talent and what they have to offer.

    I worked at Toshiba full-time

    Pros

    None. There was nothing positive about this job.

    Cons

    Too much stress, long hours, no apreciation from management. Office politics and back stabbing is out of control and management does nothing. Turn over is very high and there is a reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    micro-management doesn't work, and your people resent it.

    Pros

    Toshiba is one of very few companies hire interns with no experience. They are willing to give you chances you prove yourself. Working environment is pretty comfortable.

    Cons

    Not so challenging. Not too many opportunities to be promoted (according to others old employees)

    Former Employee - Business Solutions Sales in Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at Toshiba full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    great intensives, prizes, for making sales

    Cons

    no loyalty, expected to work after hours for no additional pay.
    no work-family balance & no advancements to next level.
    Sales is a revolving door. Contently having to train new people to sales it seamed like until they found something better & they would take the sales leads & give them to the top favorite sales people to go after. While the rest of us had to scrounge for anything we could.
    Copier sales is dog eat dog after all the manufactures came in & bought up the independent companies or put them out of business to cut out the middle man & in the process they cut out all of the money that the sales people made. So now the sales people had to work harder for less money.
    All decisions are made from Japan & Mgt. are puppets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some appreciation to your sales people when they find & make sales & not just renew contracts
