    I have been working at Toro Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay, community minded

    Cons

    Closed circle of management, promotions are far more about popularity with executives (who seem to have over stayed their usefulness to the organization) than proficiency and effectiveness, reported breaches of policy at executive level result in protection of the executive at all costs, rather than protection of the organization. If you are seeking a growth-oriented company with room to grow, don't choose Toro unless you are in tight with the C-levels and Sr. VPs.

    Advice to Management

    Make some changes - bring in some fresh ideas, fresh faces and be willing to listen. Know when it's time to let go of ineffective or overbearing management who are thwarting opportunities for company growth.

    Pros

    Dont have any thing to mention

    Cons

    Bunch of Old People are running the company , you need to belong to old white club if you need to work there for long term , racist company which don't have ethics , if you don't like you or if they want to close the position, they wont do straight layoff , they will make your life hell by finding ways to blame you and point your mistakes until you leave the job and then they will close the position .. kind of forced leave to escape from layoff salary payments

    I worked at Toro Company as an intern

    Pros

    There were a lot of great projects I was able to do! It was very fun and helped me realize where my passion lies. Interns get to do a few outside events and listen to a few speakers over the course of the summer.

    Cons

    Would have enjoyed being more hands-on and getting to work with managerial decision-making teams. Also more intern socializing events would be nice. Pay was good -- a little below the average for interns in the Minneapolis area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Develop a stronger development program for both interns and current employees

    Pros

    Love the summer hours. Enjoyed working for 10 years.

    Cons

    No telecommuting. HR moves too slow with employee issues; doesn't support supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Time to clean house and retain employees that actually work instead of employees that have been there a long time but are no longer accomplishing tasks!

    I worked at Toro Company as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are extremely nice and helpful. Office politics is almost slim to none. You will be assigned to a mentor at the company on the first day of your internship. The assignment is based on your background- your major and your internships. Your mentor is one of the most important person in your internship. She/he will give you different projects to work on and you will have a full taste of what it is like to work in IT as a full-time.

    Cons

    There are lots of projects going on and people sometimes do not have the time to explain everything for you. You have to be proactive. Meanwhile, sometimes interns don't have enough to do.
