    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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..

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    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.

    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!

    I have been working at Toyota North America (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Talented people who care about their work and are passionate about what they do. Great benefits and most managers strive to provide work/life balance for their teams.

    Cons

    Wish Toyota wasn't moving to Texas, as I was hoping to retire with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring talented people with strong work ethic. And keep as much transparency as possible in relation to the move to Texas, and progress of the new teams at the new location.

    Respectful, collaborative, innovative organization that is part of the larger Toyota family.

    Toyota has so many functional areas. For the finance arm, the challenge is partnering with more with the other functional areas: sales, marketing, research, manufacturing
