    I have been working at Toro full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance is awesome, the product is cool, and my co-workers are very friendly. Pay and benefits are alright too

    Cons

    Finance has managers handcuffed. It is nearly impossible to get any capital requests approved. Took six months to get a hand dryer for the men's bathroom through the process

    Advice to Management

    get a clue on how to efficiently run a manufacturing organization. You're not going to finance and market your way to a competitive position.

    I have been working at Toro full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    None... Unless you only like to work 10 months out of the year... Upper management could be more responsible.

    Cons

    Toro puts too much focus on customer. Without taking care of employees. hint (year round work)... Your customers will leave in droves.

    Advice to Management

    Quit making excuses about seasonal markets and devise a plan to keep people working year round... it's your job also.
