    I have been working at Toyota Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meet new people...that's it!

    Cons

    Everything from the management, pay, benefits, etc. People who say "great benefits" must never use it at all, cheap medical premiums, but expect a bill everytime you use it.

    Advice to Management

    Care more for your employees if you want to keep them. That's why there's always openings...people quit all the time once they find out how bad it is there.

    I worked at Toyota Industries full-time

    Pros

    Supporting several companies with a shared services model allows employees to make a big difference in the workplace for others.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement within the small company, but plenty of opportunities with subsidiaries.

    I worked at Toyota Industries full-time

    Pros

    Great company to have on a resume. Excellent project management skills can be acquired, the company is always looking to pass on knowledge.

    Cons

    You are teamed up with people that speak English as there second language, a translator is required for almost all interactions. When trying to explain complex things to your Japanese counterpart things are lost in translation. Can be very frustrating. Prepare to work long hours.

    I worked at Toyota Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Insurance was very inexpensive and good provider. Company was new.

    Cons

    Working conditions were not what I wanted. Worked near the furnace and was sucking in carbon but could not get a appointment for a mask fitting. Upon leaving each day my face mouth/nose was black with soot. According to safety it was safe and within standards. Bags of carbon dumped into the furnace was labeled with a warning about it causing black lung. The Japanese managers were more interested in keeping the place clean than peoples health and safety.

    Advice to Management

    Replace your safety people and adhere to real standards. Hire people with experience of working around a furnace.

    Pros

    Toyota is committed to the Associates and provides a stable work environment and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Toyota is very demanding and expects long hours from its employees.

    I have been working at Toyota Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work is easy and nobody cares about quality. All they worry about is hitting their target every night. Clock in do whatever and get a pay check. Great stepping stone.

    Cons

    Human resource, management, supervisor, and team leaders. Worst management I've ever worked for. Issues never get resolved, ridiculous counter measure that never work like the "white X", lazy maintenance that sits in the break room, under paid CNC operators, Kimata is oblivious to this problem. This is a wake up call get a new staff.

    Advice to Management

    Won't listen anyway.

    I worked at Toyota Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    High degree of responsibility
    Plenty of opportunity for advancement and expatriate assignments
    Plenty of visibility with key corporate decision makers

    Cons

    Poor company culture
    Terrible headquarters location- difficult to attract high level talent
    Corporate politics often hindered progress
    Poor work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    Learn to work together and consider moving corporate functions to a legitimate city. Company coasted too much on name and not enough on providing a positive, welcoming work environment in a location that is exciting and intriguing to young professionals.

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

    Pros

    There were a lot of learning opportunities and a good variety of projects to grow and take on. We supported numerous customers across the country. Smart team of technical people provided a good environment to incubate ideas. Good opportunity for low level technicians.

    Cons

    Pay scale was not on par with industry standard.
    Company did not acknowledge increased job duties or additional school/certifications.
    Too many chefs in the kitchen.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your quality employees and quit allowing them to leave. That is causing a tremendous drain on talent and skills. Allow your leaders to lead and not change strategic direction at every turn.
