    I worked at Toyota Industries full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    High degree of responsibility
    Plenty of opportunity for advancement and expatriate assignments
    Plenty of visibility with key corporate decision makers

    Cons

    Poor company culture
    Terrible headquarters location- difficult to attract high level talent
    Corporate politics often hindered progress
    Poor work-life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to work together and consider moving corporate functions to a legitimate city. Company coasted too much on name and not enough on providing a positive, welcoming work environment in a location that is exciting and intriguing to young professionals.

    Pros

    The people, location, onsite medical, medical benefits. Job security. Could be a great place if they cleaned house and invested in high performers.

    Cons

    Too many managers, few leaders. Compensation is subpar. Education is unimportant. Coasters paradise. Unethical practices by former management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on attracting better talent, retain for high performers, stop promoting people above there abilities. Regain the trust of your employees.

    Pros

    There were a lot of learning opportunities and a good variety of projects to grow and take on. We supported numerous customers across the country. Smart team of technical people provided a good environment to incubate ideas. Good opportunity for low level technicians.

    Cons

    Pay scale was not on par with industry standard.
    Company did not acknowledge increased job duties or additional school/certifications.
    Too many chefs in the kitchen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your quality employees and quit allowing them to leave. That is causing a tremendous drain on talent and skills. Allow your leaders to lead and not change strategic direction at every turn.

    Pros

    Benefits and made good friends

    Cons

    Terrible management (entry level management), favoring others to promotion, extremely hot environment, hours changing at last min, there policy is a little reckless, most of all salary is poor. Managers are even under paid so no one really cares.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management!!!!! Or pay for better management. Tica has to many flaws to stay working there. Get better security due to thieft, vandalizing vehicles and that bomb threat from last month. And a new improve policy that doesn't take away from the worker but benefits them.

    Stability is good but it ain't everything.

    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Torrance, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Torrance, CA

    I have been working at Toyota Industries

    Pros

    Stability and growth if you want to work in the auto industry. Others are cutting back but Toyota is not. You really have to try hard to get fired from Toyota.

    Cons

    Culture and language barriers. Toyota is looking to cut costs and west coast employee raises are below the inflation rate so annual income drops every year. In Michigan, there are opportunities to grow but on the west coast, the company is stagnating with the possibility that all CA and AZ jobs will move to MI in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Heed the dissatisfaction of the work force. When your annual raise is less than inflation, the workforce tends to look for money elsewhere and that is at other firms. Unless they treat technical staff like the professionals that they are rather then like assembly line workers, they will take their institutional knowledge and leave.
