No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Toyota North America full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Awesome alternative work schedules such as 9/80 and part-time and job sharing. Generous resources for getting training and learning. Onsite full facility gym with lap pool. Caring and competent managers. Friendly and professional environment. Beautiful campus. Great pay, rewards incentive and generous benefits. Many opportunities to move around the company and try new jobs and departments. Unified and organized senior leadership message.

Cons

A culture of inefficiently cc-ing a ton of people on email and using "reply all" on email exchanges, even to say "thank you" to one person. Annoying, inefficient and time consuming.

Advice to Management

Please stop the email inefficiencies starting with the "cc" and "reply all" madness. Does everything require a detailed time consuming A3, a report, etc? Sometimes depending on the nature of the issue, can't we just go with it?

    I have been working at Toyota North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    For the most part, a great place to work. Many opportunities, albeit lateral, for high performers. Excellent work life balance. Great benefits with competitive pay.

    Cons

    Very conservative corporate culture. Performance appraisal system is based on relative performance (with quotas) rather than individual performance based; unnecessary at best and demoralizing at worst, for both associates and managers. For better or worse, job security is akin to working for government. Dead weight can be discouraging.
