    Pros

    Nice and friendly people work here: from the securities, cafeteria workers, to managers and directors.
    I'm pretty lucky to have awesome manager and team.
    Free classes from Toshiba University for people who wants to learn and grow.
    Looks pretty good on your resume.

    Cons

    Transition time could be very tough. Some people reacts negatively, others take 100% responsibility of their future and do their best. It's the same thing with life, choose wisely.
    Corporate structures made it harder to communicate more effective and efficiently.

    Pros

    Very stable, minimal to no layoffs. Good incentives.

    Cons

    Very hard to get promotion, limited advancement opportunities unless switch department. Very rare promotion within the ranks.Most higher positions vacancies are filled by people outside company instead of promotion within ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Please provide clearer career path advancement so that employees felt a sense of achievement. Most people don't want to be stuck in same position or at least a simple title change to motivate employees letting them know they have achieved something for all the years they given to company.

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

    Pros

    Good people working there...some have become life-long friends of mine. I like how the company hired people of all different ages...so you didn't feel like it's all young twenty-thirty somethings like some companies I have worked at.

    Cons

    Management is too nit-picky. Slow progress to make any changes from standard operating procedures. Cannot keep abreast of the competition with competitive pricing in their products.

    Advice to Management

    Back up the people who support you and be more positive and encouraging. Pointing out good work versus only mentioning the negatives.
