    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 3 years)

    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).

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

    Pros

    Solid company, has a good plan for the future. Standard pay and benefits for a Fortune 500 company. Has a lot of good people working very hard and collaborating to get the job done.

    Cons

    Since going public has been slowly but surely putting investors first and employees second. Constantly reducing or eliminating benefits and perks. Wants top 50 talent and dedication but only compares pay and benefits to top 500 companies.

    Advice to Management

    If you want the company to thrive you need to get back to treating employees like family, these are the people that make the company successful and you should treat them as such.

    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.
