    Pros

    Benefits are ok not spectacular holidays

    Cons

    No room for growth unless you belong to the group of good old boys. Hire people off the street who do not have the experience or capabilities to do the job as members already working at the company. If you work long hours and create new measurements, procedures, up date and improve process you will not get the credit for your work. The select few will take the credit for your work to promote themselves and you will never promote up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being unethical, lying and deceptful. Start walking your talk if you are able.

    Pros

    Great benefits and time off policies (Christmas week shutdown). Interesting product lines. Exposure to markets and cultures throughout the world.

    Cons

    Arrogant management that is disrespectful to subordinates. Expectations of a Japanese style work environment (management by embarrassment, long hours)... does little to adapt to local work customs. Minimal training and advancement opportunities, especially if not located at main office. Management gives lip service to training and processes, but really just looks at the budget all day. People are just a tool to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The market is improving. Other jobs are out there. Time to improve morale and respect to employees or expect to lose more and more of them.

    Pros

    They consistently have coffee, tea, hot cocoa, etc. Also, they shut down from the week of Christmas until New Year's Day... with pay. There are many Japanese employees, and it was interesting to experience the business culture.

    Cons

    Absolutely everyone is miserable, all the time. The pay is low and the benefits are not impressive. They have a policy where people have to work through a temporary agency for 90 days. When you get hired on you still have to wait an additional 13 months before you receive vacation.

    I worked at Toyota Tsusho America full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Toyota Tsusho is an excellent company with amazing benefits. I was lucky to be surrounded by hard working, educated, professional coworkers. The company structure allows for growth. Upper management valued my opinions. The CEO traveled to all office locations and would have open forum meetings with all levels of employees to gain new ideas and get feedback about current procedures/policies.

    Cons

    Most upper management comes from Japan. Many higher level positions come with long work hours and travel. Different departments have different salary levels for the same position.

    Pros

    The company offers good pay and benefits. Working hours are not bad

    Cons

    Does not invest into the knowledge of it's workforce. Due to bad management decisions causes good people to leave and make other companies great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat associates as you want to be treated. They are part of your external family

    I worked at Toyota Tsusho America full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits but come at the sacrifice of a competitive salary/wage

    Cons

    Management micro manages staff which leads to mediocrity when employees feel they are not given credit for ideas or skills. Many in management do not allow employees to contribute but use them in the capacity of clerks even at the professional level. Company uses punishment instead of working with employees as a motivator. Job training is severely lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to executive or senior management is to know what is going on in the various departments and not rely on only managers to provide information. Look closely at the corporate office and how many managers there are and what little support the locations receive.
