    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 have been working at Toyota North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Toyota not only verbally shows value and investment in their employees, Toyota shows it on a daily basis. I've never worked for a Company with such integrity and desire to ensure we are solid and taken care of.
    Day 1 has consistently been the Raised Bar that the CEC of Toyota has met or beat.

    Cons

    There really isn't a Con.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to remain engaged with those on the front line. Not every case is the same as you've taught us. Be open. For the shoes we walk in may be easier understood if you try them on.
    I have nothing but gratitude for every person I work with. WE ARE A FAMILY. Thank you for never giving up on me!

    I have been working at Toyota North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Tons of perks - car discounts, year-end shut-down (for many divisions), amazing health benefits, the new HQ campus has tons of on-site perks, etc.
    -Culture and organizational values are first-class and what makes the company so great.
    -Incredibly stable organization.

    Cons

    -Not a ton of clear direction on career path - while the tenure of employees is long, it's hard to know how exactly to move around within the organization. (i.e. mentoring opportunities, etc.)
    -Some of the benefits, like vacation, could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to team members and improving things where you can.

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Job stability
    - Good company values

    Cons

    A manufacturing working office isn't for everyone. Though the people are enjoyable and management is good, the environment itself is not the most millennial friendly. It is a strict working schedule with not much flexibility. And there is also not much team building or networking, which is important in a happy workplace. These are small things in comparison to the good this company does, but I will say it's easy to get annoyed when you see more progressive companies offering "summer hours" or increased time off. Quality vs. quantity is more important these days. But also, it's just the way it is in manufacturing, so it's understandable. Just a heads up.
