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

Pros

Pay is on par with area plant is located. Not great, but not below other manufacturing plants in the area.

Cons

Middle management is HORRENDOUS!!!!! Lot of Texas group leaders who came to MS treating people as if we had just crossed the border from Mexico. Promotions are very political and are not based on knowledge or seniority. Who you befriend of kiss up to is how you are promoted. Not really a union person, but a union is definitely needed as soon as possible before any more growth is done.

Advice to Management

Take care of the people and they will take care of Toyota.

    I worked at Toyota North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and bonuses, excellent travel opportunities, exposure to industry personnel. Get to see transportation technology years before the public see it. Excellent coworkers for the most part.

    Cons

    Middle management often doesn't have a clue and they are gatekeepers between the hardworking, capable employees and the senior execs. Lack of advancement opportunities. Employees often get fed up and leave for other companies and then the same level of managers is shuffled from department to department. Employee reviews have shifted to a townhall setup where it's no longer manager/employee...it's lots of employees sitting around defending themselves to a committee of managers. The Toyota Way has lost its way.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to get in touch with their grunts and see what's going on in the trenches.
