    I worked at Toray Composites full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is good and competitive.

    Cons

    Long hours, management plays favorites, room for promotion is nonexistent, unless you are a "favored" employee. Upper management has no idea what is going on with production. All they see is numbers and what you to push out more and more. They don't care about you, no matter what they say.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employee, look at what is actually going on. Be proactive.

    I worked at Toray Composites full-time

    Pros

    I always liked my fellow co-workers and got along great with them. 14 Days off a month? It used to be a job that was very hard to get fired from and the new pay scale since the merger is not bad for new employees.

    Cons

    Long exhausting 12 hours shifts in an understaffed over managed hot dirty chemical factory with little job security, favoritism and tons of wishy washy bosses everywhere...

    Advice to Management

    Hire more production technician workers and less non production techs the work load expected should reflect staffing levels, it's a factory after all, more brick layers and less architects. Please start to Treat long term employees with the respect they deserve and stop changing the company direction every week.

    I worked at Toray Composites full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Sallary is okay.

    Cons

    All management employees are under direct order to improve the outlook of the plant manager, who is dishonest and unconcerned with safety, quality, or morale (despite him claiming otherwise). This is supported by the President, and there is no hope for promotion or a fulfilling career unless you're liked by the Plant Manager.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to why people are leaving. We are telling you, but you don't seem to want to hear it. Support ALL employees, not just those who the PM likes.

    I have been working at Toray Composites full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, even better benefits. Coming out right out of high school earning a good sum of cash isn't a bad thing/

    Cons

    Like every review says..... Play favorites, management does not care for you... Nor do they want you to advance. I feel as working here for the past 6 months has changed me completely, I no longer feel the need to care about anything when you work for these people they physically and emotionally drain you, its sad to say but true.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up.

    I worked at Toray Composites full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay. Great benefits. Some areas are great and have good managers who care and try (Sales, QA, HR, Accounting, Technical). They end up getting pushed out or made a scape goat by bullies.

    Cons

    Bad managers who aren't qualified. Promotions based on favorites. Some managers disregard rules to play favorites. Silos. Working long hours is expected, but not admitted to. Unreasonable expectations. Sabotaging others for personal gain. Top management allows this to happen. If you are smart and a good worker, it will soon be sucked out of you, especially if you work in the offices and management. Production is king so they are treated better and protected by the top. They can do no wrong. If you are not in production, you are not important. Problems are ignored or hidden. President is liked by hourly employees but not by managers. People backstab for their own gain and he ignores it. Don't complain about a bully because he will protect them. You can get promoted if you are liked by production. Don't work here. It will suck your soul.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just say that you care. Show by action. Listen to employees. Promote based on ability, not on favorite. Stop allowing people to bad talk others. Don't jump all over those who try to speak up. Listen to them, you might learn something. Stop letting bullies rule or you will lose more good people.

    Pros

    Starting pay is nice, pay raises yearly, annual bonus

    Cons

    Politics are the worst, shady promotions, poor employee/leadership relationship

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone a fair chance to promote, truly listen to employee concerns and apply them IMMEDIATELY, not just when someone gets hurt
