    Pros

    None. This is a stressful place.

    Cons

    When 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 ManagementAdvice

    STOP the RACISM!

    I worked at Toshiba full-time

    Pros

    Great Company with a good products, I believe they can be a leader in the industry if they just improve their sales staff and stop having such a high turnover in the sales arena.

    Cons

    Not very good sales reps in competitive larger cities. I blame this once again on the salesmen/women. They seemed to have some people in charge of sales that are keeping the wrong people and letting the good ones go!....I was NOT in Sales...Just observed the situation!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Better Sales people, and send the productive ones around to teach their practices.

    Pros

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

    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.
