    I worked at Toyota Motor Corporation full-time

    Pros

    TFS is a good company to work for, pay is fair (not the highest) benefits are great. Entire compensation package is one of the best.

    Cons

    Never happy with IT, the CIO changes about every 2-3 years. Can't focus on a direction of delivery, in-house or out source.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a IT strategy and stay the course.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here are the people and the Toyota culture. People truly care about our customers and the business units that we support. Our executives are very involved in shaping our future. There are plenty of opportunities to continue to learn and grow if you own your own development and use the available tools provided.

    Cons

    We operate on legacy technology which often means that project implementation is often longer and more expensive.

    Pros

    Pros..great benefits - car lease w/low payment and all maintenance and insurance included - they even register the vehicle

    Cons

    Commercial Finance was sold and became a subsidiary of Toyota and moved to Texas

    Advice to Management

    Let the employee do the job they are given...You will the find out who is worthy of staying and can make wiser choices. You tend to hire people and then don't have any plans to help then advance or work on advancing them. t may people kept stagnate.

    Pros

    Exceptional respect for people and continuous improvement culture; Employee's genuinely care for each other and strive to deliver outstanding results; The organization is a leader in green technology and incorporates strategies to sustain the future of our planet. Even when faced with a slow economy, a tsunami which reduced supply chain and overall production and a recall which included a government investigation over false claims, the organization did not lay off any employees. Instead, the organization took a long-term view of the business and retained employee's. This approach ensured their well-trained talent was well positioned to exceed customer expectations as the overall economy improved.

    Cons

    The organization is the process of moving it's headquarters to Plano, Texas and transforming operations. If you enjoy continuous change while helping set the future direction of the organization, it's a great time to work for TFS! If you have anxiety when being asked to operate in the gray, I would recommend seeking employment elsewhere!

    Advice to Management

    Over communicate to employees (team members)! Continue being transparent about all aspects of the business (the good and the opportunities). Continue treating people with the utmost respect and professionalism.
