    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 Management

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

  2. Ridiculous. Stay away at all costs.

    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.

  3. Very Knowledgeable associates, great bosses, fantastic salary, the best places to work

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, staff gets along great. The co workers help each other. Management tries to leave you alone to do your job with minimal supervision.

    Cons

    No motivation, minimal support and they make you sign a non-compete in a state that has a right to work status.

    Pros

    The name "Toshiba" sounds good

    Cons

    As an engineer, you can expect to get monotonous work forever. Engineers have been doing the same job there for decades - no one grows within the company, and even the machinists on the floor will tell you that from day one. Engineers last for about 1.5 years on average.

    Advice to Management

    Move into different industries that will challenge the R&D department to do something new. The same old product is boring. Become employee-oriented so that high-potential college grads actually want to work there.

    Pros

    Great company, get treated very well at Toshiba. Would recommend working at Toshiba compared to all other silicon valley companies.

    Cons

    big corporation, big HR department which tends to lead to frequent training. Frequent training gets in the way of daily work.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on frequent unnecessary training for all employees. Only require training for applicable employees, or make it optional training.
