    I have been working at Toyota North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for Toyota for 13+ years and absolutely LOVE it, which is why I'm moving to Texas with them. So many opportunities are offered and flexibility has never been as issue for me, even as a single parent - awesome company.

    Cons

    None, other than hard work is expected from each associate. You might not always like who you work for, but getting the job done, as a team, makes it all worth while.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility, understanding of each associates situation and keep taking care of us as we'll take care of YOU

    I worked at Toyota North America as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, great training, great perks.

    Cons

    Corporate, inefficient, slow, and often boring.

    Advice to Management

    I think management does well with what they have. I just personally find a smaller office environment where I can where multiple hats to be much more engaging.

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

    Pros

    TMS, in Torrance CA, provided a great work life balance. Also, the organization encouraged rotating through various positions to keep employees stimulated and round out knowledge of the organization.

    Cons

    Some of the managers were absolutely terrible. I've never had to complain to HR in my life, but at TMS I had to. The other problem with the organization was that they decided to move everything to Texas! No thanks!!!

    Advice to Management

    Watch your problem managers such as the one I had to complain to HR about. I later heard this individual was promoted, even after an HR investigation that substantiated her bullying behavior. This is unacceptable and damaging to the culture.

    I worked at Toyota North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good company to work for overall..Good benefits, fair pay, and decent work life balance. Lots of change coming...mostly to benefit the bottom line, but not the employees..

    Cons

    Moving to Texas, cost cutting mode, outsourcing more and more, leadership going down the drain and tribal knowledge walking out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your people and their knowledge and experience...they're not replaceable for half the price in TX..

    Pros

    Great position to learn the automotive business and prepare for a long term career in the Auto Industry. No better company in the Automotive Industry!

    Cons

    Travel life is not for everyone. The job is demanding and will require sacrifice of personal time. But if you are willing to put in the time then it will pay off.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Management at every step has been outstanding. Hard to find people you do not like in upper management!

    Pros

    Benefits are great. People are nice. They encourage process improvement. Flexible work/life through generous vacation and holidays. The car lease is really nice as well.

    Cons

    Not a lot upward mobility. Senior Analyst level is really management level in most companies. It helps to be male to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and support more women in upper management. Definitely feels like the good old boy club a lot.
