    I have been working at Toyota North America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good experience of the industry, great way to sharpen problem solving skills through a corporate culture of constant problem solving. Direct visibility to management, by contrast to American companies. Rewarding experience to have a stake in vehicle development cycle, years before it hits production.

    Cons

    Uneven workload distribution. Company praises "respect for people" without actually giving respect to team member (work life balance, knowledge sharing). The "PULL" system is frustrating--very difficult to learn when management does not give direct answers that actually help team members. All coordinators have a personal black book "BOK that they refer to, but do not make copies or share. No structure of training or development of team members (OJD). North America (TTC) is held to a double standard compared to TMC division.

    Advice to Management

    End the management (all) style that makes team members pull when they are being pushed to be challenged. Take more proactive approach to develop team members by volunteering knowledge and support. Often times, "support" is meant to mean "ask if you need help and I might give you the answer if you ask the right question" instead of "let me help you". If team members are being directed to help themselves, then provide a STANDARDIZED knowledge base (BOK) or tools that will reinforce their development. My group currently lacks a standardized process (BOK is incomplete), which makes very difficult to become effective in an environment with too much work and too little staff. Help new team members become developed, instead of all OJD.... which is ironic for a company that is known for standardization in the industry.
