    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 full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Greatest experience one could ask for in management, associates and environment. The best thing about the company are the people that you work with. The company looks after its people as well.

    Cons

    Relocation to Plano, Texas, although a wonderful opportunity for the company, since it's out of California. Personally, wasn't able to relocate due to personal concerns. Potential changes with the relocation may affect how the company is run and how it treats it people, so there's that cloud hanging over the associates. But Toyota has always looked out for its people so let's hope that trend continues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you've always done and not change with the relocation. The greatest company to work for, so don't mess with success!

    No cons to note at this time.

    Pros

    Great work life balance and work environment.

    Advancement is difficult and greatly depends on who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Opportunities for advancement should be based on what you know and overall ratings, and not on who you know.

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

    Pros

    Job security, good benefits, competitive compensation, 9/80 work week, mgmt supportive of career development/training opportunities

    Cons

    Slow to get promoted/ lack of advancement opportunities, office politics, siloed groups still exist, management transparency improving but still a lot of room for improvement in this area
    The corporate culture is too consensus-centric that sometimes impedes the decision making process.

    Advice to Management

    More managers should learn to walk the talk; create more & faster advancement opportunities to move up the corporate ladder; too much effort on consensus building can stymie company progress

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

    Pros

    Good health benefits with a half-way decent salary.

    Cons

    Job descriptions are not accurate. Many false expectations are set as early on as the interview process. Work-life balance compromised greatly.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful to incoming employees. Try to provide employees with the tools necessary to be successful. Stop it with the clique-ish nature of certain departments and the not-so-very-well hidden fraternizing within said departments.
