    I have been working at Toyota Tsusho America full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    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.

    I have been working at Toyota Tsusho America full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    I worked at Toyota Tsusho America full-time

    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.
