Pros

Excellent job security, lots of vacation, great health care benefits.
Overall the team members are friendly and people generally exhibit a company first attitude (as opposed to only one dept or another.)

Cons

Little room for development after 5-7 years.
Rotation ability to other departments very limited.
Promotion opportunities becoming more and more limited.

Advice to Management

Technical / skills promotions & recognition is very important. Glass ceiling for workers is very short. After 5-7 years little career advancement or personal growth is possible outside of management.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Employee discount, stable job environment if you are full-time

    Cons

    Lack of upward movement due to the Americanization of the plant and new key positions bring their cronies from previous outside employers. Toyota has faltered in the J.D. Powers quality award every since they moved from a bottom up management style to top-down management style. The development of internal talent that made this co. Great has been put to the wayside and it shows from all the recent problems that are starting to creep up on them.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fix something that is not broken. The recent push to get themselves back on track is thwarted by not using ideas that are solicited in feedback sessions. Do not ask for feedback if you are not willing to take the criticism and grow from it.
