    Pros

    Plenty of room for personal growth and development to those who are motivated and take charge of their own path. Compensation, benefits, and work/life balance are all positive and fair.

    Cons

    Accountability is not a strong suit and there is much waste because of this. Disconnect between teams - Engineering, Marketing, Service - in the Commercial Division ultimately leads to lack of focus on the customer, their needs and their experience. Being so disconnected from the customer perpetuates a culture of hurrying to get the next thing to market rather than addressing existing/legacy product opportunities or voice of customer feedback in a meaningful way. Accountability on this side of the house would lead to a much leaner business and even higher customer satisfaction.

    "Known for strong leadership, but no room for growth"

    I have been working at The Toro Company

    Pros

    Most work groups work 40 hours a week which creates a good work/life balance. Summer hours provide people with an additional day off on Fridays. People generally know what they are doing because they have been in the same position for many years. Despite being a boys club, upper management seems dedicated to making the company successful as opposed to being focused on their individual desires. Pay is on par but 401K could use improvement.

    Cons

    Very limited opportunity for growth, especially for women. It is a tough atmosphere for younger employees also because a large time commitment (7-8 years) needs to be put in before you see any return. Certain workgroups have poor direct leadership with expectations not expressed. Many employees do not have passion for the company but work there because of the work/life balance. The focus on putting in the hours leads people to put requests on the backburner and a loss in productivity. Some management does not see dedication in people and does not see or acknowledge effort.

    I worked at The Toro Company

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and benefits. They treat the employees well and the people are great to work with. They run a very organized business and are receptive to ideas for improvements and efficiencies. Many great training opportunities. Overall, the only company I would work for again. I wish I had never left.

    Cons

    Difficult to get promoted because no one leaves. Wish there had been the option for lateral moves to get more diverse busines exposure.
