    I have been working at Toyota Motor Sales full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A brand I am proud of and a company that tends to do things first class. Outstanding benefits, flexibile work schedules, decent work/life balance (depends on department). Global opportunites for talented people who seek them. Good pay but you won't get rich.

    Cons

    Slow to change. Concensus culture slows things down. Field sales rotations offer better job growth path than corporate jobs. Talented corporate professionals get frustrated by lacck of career growth/promotional opportunities. Generally high ethical standards but different standards for different levels of management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If field experience is important to growth, create a rotational program that allows talented corporate staff gain that experience without uprooting their family. Job swaps with you SoCal (soon to be Texas) field offices would be ideal. You'd better have a plan for surviving until you move to Texas. You are losing people quickly and have no sustainment strategy.

    Pros

    Work/life balance is amazing--we work a 9/80 schedule with every other Friday off, and get paid for any overtime.
    They really care about their employees, and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    Slow career progression, because so many people stay with the company for most of their career and the company isn't growing a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know this is a large organization, but it would be nice if decisions by managers could be made more quickly, without as much of the time it takes to go through Toyota's consensus-building process.

    Pros

    It's a global company with many opportunities.

    Because it's a global company with many opportunities, no one wants to leave and development growth is limited.
