    I worked at Toro Company (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall a good organization with mostly good, well-meaning employees. The culture is targeted on creating a family feel for employees; this can ring hollow at times. I had the opportunity to obtain an advanced degree while working full time utilizing tuition reimbursement programs. Many employees at corporate are long-term; 10+ years. Current and recent past CEOs have been groomed from within the organization.

    Cons

    Mentorship and career development is spotty. Can be challenging to find growth opportunities if you are not identified early as a management development track employee.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to and aware of current employees with untapped potential and provide opportunities to identify and develop them.

    I worked at Toro Company (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working in the warehouse doing orders is a lot of independent work, good competitive wages, mandatory 9 or 10 hour shifts in the summer. Walked about 6 miles a day in the warehouse almost daily and there is some lifting. Monday through Friday work hours.

    Cons

    The employees can be a bit clique-y. The environment is like your typical warehouse so there is dust and dirt which is to be expected.

    Pros

    The company is good the management lacks at times. Super hard to switch jobs internally.

    I worked at Toro Company full-time

    Pros

    I gained a lot of hands-on experience. The company has a lot of kind, helpful people that were easy to work with.

    Cons

    After being hired from a temp position, I expected that the company would use my technical degree and experience to their benefit. Instead, they offered me a position as a clerk doing odd jobs and from there my position was stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    Take advantage of what the employee's can offer. In my case, I became bored and felt under-utilized.
