    Pros

    Great medical benefits, paid time off, 9/80, pension, lease car including insurance, casual dress. Company salary is very competitive with annual bonus. Overall strong supportive management with a great pool of high performing associates.

    Cons

    Company relocating to Texas, culture will probably change with less respect for people as now looking at the bottom line. Anticipate benefits to change as Texas is an employer friendly state. A lot of silo's and runs on some antiquated systems.

    I worked at Toyota Motor Sales as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The Lexus Southern regional office was a fantastic place to spend my summer for an internship. Gained some very valuable experience.

    Cons

    No true cons. The workplace is fantastic. Just be mindful of the commute to and from Alpharetta. GA 400 is awful and I-285 is worse

    Pros

    Great place to learn and grow. Friendly, helpful, and professional people work at Toyota. Long tenured employees so they value teamwork and helping each other.

    Cons

    Hierarchical organization. Depending on the department you work, it takes time for your ideas to come to fruition and get implemented. Slow and hierarchical decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push more decision making down to the front line and hold managers accountable for coaching and developing their associates.

    On the surface. Lower than average pay, better than average benefits. A lot of silos, cliques and denial.

    Pros

    Better than average benefits, for now. Fun, social and very smart co-workers. Was nearly paradise until 2008...

    Cons

    Moving to location in TX, known for 50 years of lead contamination -from batteries. Yep, used in hybrids. Pay will be frozen. Benefits reduced. Staff cut in half, workload will double. No mandatory overtime pay in TX where companies rule and employees are a tool. Employee Car lease program will end, thanks to TX laws.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gee thanks.

    It was basically a legal pyramid scheme.

    I have been working at Toyota Motor Sales

    Pros

    A good amount of sales experience is built. Large amount of leads.

    Cons

    A $2000.00 draw check had to be paid to the company at the end of every month that was subtracted from paycheck. Unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the competition in management.

    Pros

    It a great environment family like typical work hours 8 to 5 great benefit and 2 weeks paid for Christmas holiday

    Cons

    Got the internship then got offered low ball pay for Southern California and did not give any room for negotiating it was a taking it or leave it case. Most workers have to have 2 or 3 roommates just to survive. Like I said not a very competitive salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a more competitive salary 53500 is like minimum wage in Torrance CA and when you promise a internship in one area don't put them in a job where their true skills cannot be used.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, extremely stable company even during the economic downturn. One of very few companies to keep associates at the HQ level and at the slower non producing plants during this time. Good Pension great 401k and a lots of opportunity for growth. Some travel in this position but very well keeps it interesting. Excited about the new products and supporting various departments and field personnel a plus.

    Cons

    Moving to Texas is one issue. Personal growth is dependent on the person and not really the company but they do encourage movement in the company and field experience.
