    I have been working at Toyota North America full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    -You can't beat the benefits: tons of amenities at the HQ campus, health benefits are the best I've ever seen/experienced, car lease/discount program, etc. -Depending on your role/manager there is an abundance of work/life balance (WFH when needed, rarity to have long hours, lots of colleague support) -The company truly does have a long-term vision which creates a lot of job security/stability - no layoffs, always thinking...

    Cons

    -There are a lot of layers of management, so decisions can often take much longer than needed -Due to the long tenure of employees, it can take time to move up and around the company -Toyota isn't going to pay you the most base salary of any company out there, so if that's what you're looking for this likely isn't the place for you -The organization is constantly changing and moving, so if this is a problem for you,...

    Advice to Management

    -Remove barriers for lower-level employees to get their work done and don't be the cause of things slowing down -Over-communicate - more information is always better than less/nothing

    I have been working at Toyota North America full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Good pay, GREAT benefits program, great job security- they really stand behind their core value of respect for people, and ultimately they just treat their employees really well. They have so many opportunities for their employees to grow within the company- whether that's volunteering with Toyota4Good activities, joining a BPG and getting involved that way, attending the many events held for team members onsite (like...

    Cons

    It's a large company, so you do have some of the bureaucratic red tape that can come with that, and slower decision making at times. Their benefits for maternity leave & paternity leave could be improved as well as we see other companies really setting the bar in this space- I think they recognize this but hoping to see this improve in the coming years.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to create opportunities for your team members to rotate into new positions and grow within their careers. If that next level isn't open now, help team members understand what their path could look like and what other options might be. We have long tenured employees here which is great, but it can sometimes make it feel difficult to get that opportunity to take our careers to the next level, so help us then...

    I worked at Toyota North America full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    A good company to work for in the long run.

    Cons

    Advancement is not always easy. Gone are the days when your hard work spoke for you. Advancement is more about who you know and associate with. I guess that is the way of business now days. More work with less people also now days. When I first started with the company I wondered where all of the older people were. As your years with the company grow and you get older you will realize age can contribute to your...

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on your employees. Just to save money should not mean drowning your employees with work with little help and support.

    Pros

    That you can use Toyota on your Resume.

    Cons

    Diversity is used widely through all of Toyota, yet there is underlining discrimination against those who are older. You will never be chosen for promotion, nor projects. Favoritism runs rampant also, in the CEC, this is evident when you know that certain case managers were only given their positions due to upper management favoritism. We have a coding which is called Q and A which needs a total overhaul. It is up to...

    I worked at Toyota North America full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Toyota gets the best quality supplier experts.

    Cons

    History of not paying contractors on schedule and request to negotiate payments with criticism. Suppliers are less likely to return to work at Toyota plants and over charge to cover frequent spec changes.

    Advice to Management

    Support your subordinates by properly training them and give more instructive leadership at the beginning, during, and finalizing projects with the plant and suppliers.

    Pros

    - HQ campus is awesome. Tons of amenities and cool spaces to work/relax - The people really care about the company and what it stands for - Upper leadership is committed to driving the company into the future and beyond - Opportunities to have work/life balance and move up/across depts

    Cons

    - like any big company, can be slow to change/make timely decisions - would like more work flexibility options - while overall benefits are amazing, some work can be done regarding family leave, which I think the company recognizes

    Advice to Management

    - Allow team members the freedom to get their work done and don't be the cause of things slowing down - Have open door policy and communication at all levels of management
