    I have been working at Toyota North America (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    decent pay and they take good care of their employees, encourage moving around the company

    Cons

    VERY cliquish, if you get on the bad side of any Toyota "lifer" you can pretty much forget moving up AT ALL regardless of how good of a worker you are. TONS of long-term managers who do almost NO work and excel at passing work off on to other people

    Advice to Management

    moving to Texas will eventually clear out a lot of the dead weight in middle management. Reward and recognize the team members that carry the day to day load without the management perks of box seats, coming in late/leaving early and socializing all day.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits (low cost!), lease vehicles that cover maintenance and insurance, the campus will have a lot of amenities (pharmacy, gym, etc), cares about the environment, lots of groups you can join to network with others, respectful environment, collaboration, community service opportunities, focus on the customer, the list goes on and on!

    Cons

    There's a lot of change currently so have to be flexible but that is to be expected.....and leads to a lot of opportunity for growth and stretch assignments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication open and timely, it is appreciated

    Pros

    Incredible benefits (lease cars with free maintenance and insurance included, 9/80 work schedule, paid OT, 401K and pension, medical/dental/vision, etc), nice people, great management.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement, though getting better. Due to size of company, sometimes slow decision-making as Toyota is really into consensus building (which is nice).

    Pros

    Great people that genuinely care about their employees. Good work life balance with flexibility and industry leading benefit package. Lots of opportunity for growth and advancement.

    Cons

    Some technology upgrades are needed with out dated systems. However, the company has acknowledged this and they are addressing it.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility is the future of the workplace and Toyota is starting to recognize and implement that. The more flexibility management can offer, the more satisfied their employees will be.

    Putting in many hours can seems sometimes underpaid. Depending on the departments it can be pretty stressful and the coworkers can be very unpleasant.
