    I have been working at Toyota Financial Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for a few corporations, and this is not like any of them! TFS actually cares about people. Also it is like a family and people really respect each other. Also, the benefits are great and the pay seems competitive. Best company I've worked for! Also, I love their "safe to speak" culture because it gives everyone a voice.

    Cons

    The recent announcement of the US head quarters relocation from CA to TX has not been great for employee morale, but the company is giving a really great relocation package to help. In general, I don't have many complaints.

    I have been working at Toyota Financial Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at TFS for many years and it has been a terrific experience. Their health benefits are 2nd best in the city, their car benefits cover my family, the work environment is very casual and the opportunity to advance is good,,, if you have a degree.

    The company does a lot of fund raising for community charities, and lots of fun events. There are many committees to join and opportunities to be involved in company and community events.

    There are annual raises and a yearly bonus based based on performance.

    All managers have an open door policy and the culture of the company is a priority including Diversity and Inclusion. Upper management are very approachable.

    There is a cafeteria onsite that is heavily subsidized by the company making prices very reasonable.

    Work-Life balance is very good, they recently made their same day time off program more flexible. Some departments have flexible work schedules which can be helpful and they recently introduced part-time positions in some departments.

    Cons

    The company used to be much more generous to their employees, outrageous Christmas parties and regular giveaways are all but gone. The monthly collections bonus program was recently eliminated effectively reducing income potential for top performers.

    A main frustration is that because Management styles vary so drastically between call center locations, the same departments at different sites are not held to the same standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a standard for the work done and stick with it. Hold employees accountable for sub-standard work.

    Great company culture. Sometimes too strict and systemic for their own good.

    Pros

    Great culture and values, Toyota lives up to its reputation for quality, not just in manufacturing, but in customer service.

    Cons

    You can't advance into a leadership role unless you have a four year degree, period. No matter how good you are at your current role, no matter how much you shine, it's not happening without the paper. Lots of pats on the back and kudos, which are wonderful, but not where it matters most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, but learn to see potential in others beyond their formal education. Especially in today's world, it's not everything.

    Pros

    The benefits are better than most places. Low employee cost for health and dental insurance, plus discounts are car purchases and leases.

    Cons

    Not much career advancement opportunites. Work environment is rigid and tense at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be more flexible.
