    I worked at Toyota Tsusho America full-time

    Pros

    I learned a lot at this company and didn't mind the high expectations of the Japanese culture. Hard work is expected, and they will promote accordingly, but you'll have to make a stellar case for raises. Great medical benefits (free!) and two+ total paid weeks off during shutdown in the summer and at Christmas. Depending on how far free medical benefits and PTO go with you, it may be worth the relatively low pay.

    Cons

    What the Japanese say goes...mainly that's a hindrance for upper management though. Urgent situations may require long hours. They are VERY slow to remove ineffective management/employees. The hardest workers pull the extra weight of the laziest.

    Pros

    Full insurance at no cost, good for families
    Work/life balance, rarely expected more than 40 hours

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement, lower levels paid like peasants.
    Change makes snails blush for how slow it is
    Every group is viewed as a whole, poor employees are not punished, good employees not rewarded.
    Every choice is going back to Japan for denial, then re-work with Japanese ideas
    Middle man with very little value add, place in market is a joke

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more, encourage active engagement, take American ideas seriously
    Find a way to delivery significant value beyond holding inventory/payment terms
    Hire and encourage young, bright employees, try to retain their services.

    Pros

    Hours were great and work was not overly challenging.

    Cons

    Repeat work constantly. Boss would cuss out employees and would not hesitate to throw someone under the bus. There was no support from management. Manager was not qualified for job - little education and credentials. Department had constant turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Consider termination of certain managers that do not treat their employees correctly - they are an HR issue waiting to happen.
