    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

    High integrity, values employees, pushing to change with the times, and great products employees can be proud of

    Pros

    A lot of diverse opportunity for different co-op project, good pay, close to college town of Lexington, project management opportunities, plenty of other co-ops to network with

    Depending on your department, a lot of overtime could be necessary sometimes 60+ hrs/wk at peak project times. This could be a pro or a con depending on your preference. Overtime is compensated for

    Advice to Management

    Great Co-Op program

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with a lot of opportunity for growth

    Cons

    North America still largely follows Japan. Japan is slow to grow and change

    Advice to Management

    Change in Toyota needs to come from the top. More pressure from NA on Japan to make bigger changes

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

    Pros

    Good benefits such as medical,dental,vision,and retirement. Hours for first shift are 5am-1:30pm and second shift 3:45pm-12:15am. Overtime is worked two hours a day Monday-Thursday after your schedule shift.

    When a associate is first hired he or she will work on second shift until they have enough seniority to move to first shift. The average now is about 15 years.
