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

    Pros

    The CEO Akio Toyoda has a vision and deep integrity. There are many good people at the company trying to do good things.

    Cons

    It's a very difficult time in the organization. They've gone through an internal merger which has caused chaos. Leadership may not have the skills to address the new world and the highly structured way of managing is not appealing to curious, proactive thinkers and doers.

    Advice to Management

    Toyota's way of doing things isn't necessarily the only or best way of doing things. Loosen the grip.

    Pros

    Company to be proud of, benefits, many locations should you choose to transfer, history of company is positive, community involvement both local and global is amazing

    Cons

    Push for next goals sometimes over shadow current successes, would prefer company share their community involvement both local and globally more than they do so people are aware of their many contributions, better coordination of group efforts between sponsorships at all levels, more communications between regions.

    Advice to Management

    Savor the victories just a little longer, listen to all staff and take it to heart not just listen to be done
