    I worked at Toyoda Gosei North America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The employees are friendly and nice.

    Cons

    Way to much work load in I.T., No I.T. structure , No investment in employees, underpays Skill workers, has very little interest in creating a better environment. Only cares about getting product out the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your I.T. department (its not 1988 anymore) and invest in your employees. You continually abuse the employees by dramatically underpaying them and on top of that forcing them to carry a very heavy workload so you can " Do more with way less"

    I worked at Toyoda Gosei North America full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good about providing training, excellent benefits (pre-2009), opportunities to cross train.

    Cons

    Disconnect between Japanese and US management, lots of nepotistic hiring and favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time to know your employees rather than just relying on general preconception. Big decisions were made about employees with little or no knowledge of their value.

    I worked at Toyoda Gosei North America as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Internship opportunities, great opportunities for entry level positions, flexible hours, cafeteria, employee fitness program, manufactures good products

    Cons

    Corporation mentality, doesn't care about contract employees, barely cares about non-office employees. Will send engineers away from their families for years at a time just because they don't want to hire someone new in a different location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't throw money at all your problems and wonder why you're broke.

    Cons

    Haven't found any negatives yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not enough authority given to lower management. Everything has to be signed by the president which slows the whole process down.

    Pros

    Main reason to work at Toyota Group company was Job stability. That was wrong, jon stability for only Japanese employees not for American or Canadian employees.

    Cons

    No recognition for an excellent work, Individual does not benefits. Manager or group benefits doer or initiator does not get credit or any benefit for his work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    slow management decisions and bad communications with employees.
    Japanese management takes care of Japanese direction and leaves NA actions on NA management which does not effect Japanese direction without analysis NA effect or long rage effect.
