    I worked at Toshiba full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow your ..."Founder's"...roots.

    Pros

    They try to keep their employees happy, they reward hard work, seemingly unlimited resources available for research, ample opportunities to rise in the company.

    Cons

    A bit out of touch with consumers and the market, very large company and the components of the company don't always work well together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the consumer better. Usability should be the key when developing projects.

    I worked at Toshiba

    Pros

    Great collaboration with colleagues at international locations
    Great autonomy and flat organization
    Very flexible working hours
    Very interesting work

    Cons

    Promotion was tricky due to the flat organization. After a 4 years it felt like the only avenue to continue progressing professional was leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing the right things right: treating your employees with respect and as friends, listening at their opinions, and allowing them to follow their convictions. You should improve giving a clearer career path and more options to professionally grow.
