    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.

    I have been working at Toshiba as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment, people are nice. I heard that they do not lay anyone off unless they have done something very wrong. Hiring a lot of people.

    Cons

    Lack of responsibilities, and feel insignificant. Some systems are old, and projects are slow. They are trying to improve to a new system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More involvement with interns, assign mentor.

    Pros

    Most of the co-workers are really nice.

    Cons

    The old guard owns all the accounts, the pricing is fixed so you cant make any money, management are mostly retarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing is going to fix what you have going on here except to fire everyone and start over.

    Pros

    Can't think of a single one.

    Cons

    Completely unorganized. Does not take the US market seriously. Bonuses have steadily decreased over time. Health insurance costs are skyrocketing, and at the same time the coverage is decreasing. 16% cost increase for 2012. 10% cost increase for 2013. Coverage got much worse in both years. Dental and vision care are terrible. 0 career development. Little chance for promotion or cross-movement. Seems to be getting worse.
    Management needs to be all fired.

    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.
