    I worked at Toshiba as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Engineering and Manufacturing type atmosphere.

    Cons

    Less pay than other technology roles. Benefits are somewhat competitive. Poor management at the Houston office, lack of respect for persons. Engineer's ideas were not supported and they were over worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to listen to your customers more, be more competitive with salaries, and foster a better culture that respects individuals and their ideas.

    Current Employee - Project Engineer in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    Very stable, minimal to no layoffs. Good incentives.

    Cons

    Very hard to get promotion, limited advancement opportunities unless switch department. Very rare promotion within the ranks.Most higher positions vacancies are filled by people outside company instead of promotion within ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide clearer career path advancement so that employees felt a sense of achievement. Most people don't want to be stuck in same position or at least a simple title change to motivate employees letting them know they have achieved something for all the years they given to company.

    I worked at Toshiba full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people working there...some have become life-long friends of mine. I like how the company hired people of all different ages...so you didn't feel like it's all young twenty-thirty somethings like some companies I have worked at.

    Cons

    Management is too nit-picky. Slow progress to make any changes from standard operating procedures. Cannot keep abreast of the competition with competitive pricing in their products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back up the people who support you and be more positive and encouraging. Pointing out good work versus only mentioning the negatives.

    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.
