    I worked at Toyota Boshoku full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced and challenging work that never ends.

    Cons

    To say that executives were clueless would be giving them too much credit.
    Leadership was nonexistent. Stupid decisions were the norm.
    Easy decisions to make positive changes stared them in the face; they didn't blink - they didn't do anything!
    Executives are way overpaid. They are barely first line management capable.
    Administration is an ocean of ineptitude.
    Human Resources is ignorant. They do nothing to make things better for the team members, even though the team members complain on a daily basis.
    Structure is rigid and inflexible. They want to be "Toyota", and that is the biggest problem. Toyota is not a good company, except for the money. People at Toyota are paid huge bonuses as hush money to cover for the poorly managed operations.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be Toyota. Toyota is a sham not worth emulating.
    Be an American company that actually cares about people. People are what makes the engine run, not Toyota Way, and other brainwashing tactics used by the Japanese. Speaking of the Japanese - why are they there? They contribute nothing, they spend ungodly amounts of money, and they accomplish nothing...other than making bad decision after bad decision. Hire a "real" executive who has nothing to do with Toyota, and "Americanize" the company. Make it people-friendly, stop wasting time on charts and charts and more charts, and assign constructive projects to team members, not just busy work.
    Stop acting like a hammer, and everything you see is a nail. Running a company is NOT playing whack-a-mole!
