    Great company. Lots of opportunity.

    Product Planning (Current Employee) Torrance, CA

    ProsHuge, dynamic company that always innovates, improves & inspires.
    Opportunity for cross department movement (better than any company in this regard.)
    Visibility & direct involvement with top management.
    Overtime Eligible
    Every other Friday off
    I'm proud to work here!
    I'm challenged and satisfied with the work I do.
    I look up to and respect my managers and VP's.
    Lots of smart, innovative people!
    Pension! Yes, even in 2014!
    No one leaves because it's a dream come true. Trust me. Toyota is the 4th company I've worked for and I'll never leave. I wake up content and motivated in going to work each day.

    ConsSlow decision making.
    Not big on titles. A "senior" executive in entertainment will come in as a band 3 "administrator" here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I (Used to) Love What You Do For Me - TOYOTA

    District Service and Parts Manager (Current Employee) West Caldwell, NJ

    ProsGood overall company that is stable and well funded. Decent products

    ConsPoor work/life balance. Pay is fair. The dealers pressure regional management to hire their children. Each regional office has one or two "dealer kids" that get showered with attention and poof the dealer kids go back to run their parents business.

    There is very little management turnover so job growth is limited.

    Terrible Management

    Customer Relations Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsThe benefits were great,but there will be changing due to obamacare next year.

    ConsThe managers had no interest in the family work life balance and were inconsistent with the yreatment of their employees. The hours were awful and your shift changed every couple months based on performance .The training is awful and they dont prepare you for the job adequately. The systems are outdated and constantly failing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your employees and treat them fairly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A wonderful company that takes care of its associates.

    Marketing Administrator (Former Employee) Torrance, CA

    ProsExcellent benefits package, many learning opportunities, and many amazing leaders.

    ConsLong hours and demanding management

    Advice to Senior ManagementSee that worker bees get credit for their work as many line managers sit back, enjoy perks, and accept recognition not deserved.

    It was an eye opening experience, both good and bad.

    Product Planning (Former Employee) Torrance, CA

    ProsMethodical, process focused and quality of work is highly regarded. The benefit was great. They provide a lot of information resources for our line of work.

    ConsDue to the great benefits, the opportunity for upward movement is scarce. Dealing with the politics were tough to get use to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease allow for out of the box thinking, be flexible and allow for quicker execution.

    Great company with a commitment to training and development.

    Staff Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsToyota makes a quality product and has a very loyal owner base. The benefit package is great. Pay is ok. Associate work/life balance is important to the company.

    ConsThe company is getting long in the tooth. Much of its growth in the last 10 years has been from entering new segments. The brand is very conservative in a market that is increasingly competitive.

    Challenging and rewarding, but lack of promotional movement driving talent out

    District Sales Manager (Current Employee) Glen Burnie, MD

    ProsRegional management who are engaged and responsive to suggestions
    Dealer body who that is motivated and drives hard to deliver results
    Open and inclusive environment that motivates regional associates to bring new ideas forward and fully participate in the growth and success of Toyota.
    Great insurance and pay for performance / bonuses

    ConsTenured regional management staff who refuse to move through the system and have clogged the pipe with little promotional opportunities for field staff, forcing top performers leave the company while mediocre employees remain.
    Corporate managers layered within offices at Torrance, CA who have no idea how the day to day operations of a regional office or dealership work, yet they are making decisions that impact field operations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreated opportunities for top performing field staff to move quicker through the system or continue to lose associates to competitors.
