    This is nice company overall with friendly people

    Designing Intern (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsToshiba 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.

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

    Toxic Company Culture

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsNone. There was nothing positive about this job.

    ConsToo 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 Senior Managementmicro-management doesn't work, and your people resent it.

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

    not much room for growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosco-workers are friendly. Big space

    ConsNot enough recognition for the job well done. Too much Politics

    A whole lot of work for not much in return

    Business Solutions Sales (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    Prosgreat intensives, prizes, for making sales

    Consno 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 Senior ManagementShow some appreciation to your sales people when they find & make sales & not just renew contracts

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Horrible! I wouldn't tell anyone about this job. It's a horrible place to work. I was stressed out the whole time.

    Assembler (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsNone. This is a stressful place.

    ConsWhen you go to H R to report issues that aren't right, they get with the Manager and they then try to find something on you so they can fire you. It's very racist.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSTOP the RACISM!

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