        Approves of CEO

        I worked at Toshiba full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        As an engineer, you get the opportunity to work on some pretty cool and unique products. The workload is tough but you get exposed to a wide array of experiences in a practical manner.

        Cons

        The busy seasons are very tough. You are expected to be on call constantly and it can be extremely stressful. You can count on poor communication from the field or shop causing problems and adding to the stress

        Advice to Management

        Really need to distribute the workload better. One engineer will be working 50+ hours a week while another is sitting around with nothing to do.

        I worked at Toshiba full-time

        Disapproves of CEO

        I have been working at Toshiba full-time for more than 8 years

        Pros

        Depending on which department you work in, for certain departments, you only need to do 4 hours of real work every week. 401K match is a minor plus too. You get max incentives almost every quarter.

        Cons

        Overall: Please Please don't look at 3.6 overall rating since Toshiba has different offices in different sectors across USA. This review is specifically for Toshiba International Corporation located in Houston, TX. Please stay away if you are in your early or mid stage in your career and still care for your career progression. But this is a perfect company if you are about to retire or good at playing politics since there...

        Pros

        Bonus plan every half, but effected by their financial difficulties

        Need to add more US management with authority to get the job done.

          I worked at Toshiba full-time for more than 10 years

          Pros

          None really, I had hoped for better.

          Cons

          Too much work and too little compensation. Terrible managers. Stay away.

          Advice to Management

          They should promote from within rather than hiring previous co-workers and family.
