    Pros

    Great position to learn the automotive business and prepare for a long term career in the Auto Industry. No better company in the Automotive Industry!

    Cons

    Travel life is not for everyone. The job is demanding and will require sacrifice of personal time. But if you are willing to put in the time then it will pay off.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Management at every step has been outstanding. Hard to find people you do not like in upper management!


  4. "8 months Co-Op at Toyota"

    Former Employee - Co-Op in Ann Arbor, MI
    Former Employee - Co-Op in Ann Arbor, MI

    I worked at Toyota North America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Given real responsibilities to lead projects and meet deadlines
    - Given a mentor / manager to help train you
    - Established co-op program, so there are activities and plenty other co-ops

    Cons

    Though it's a good learning environment for an intern, I am happy I did not stay there long-term.

    - Can be very bureaucratic
    - Toyota North America reports to Toyota HQ in Japan, who makes decisions without much flexibility
    - Difficult or catty co-workers can make for high stress / un-enjoyable work day

    I have been working at Toyota North America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great. People are nice. They encourage process improvement. Flexible work/life through generous vacation and holidays. The car lease is really nice as well.

    Cons

    Not a lot upward mobility. Senior Analyst level is really management level in most companies. It helps to be male to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and support more women in upper management. Definitely feels like the good old boy club a lot.

    Pros

    There is a wealth of knowledge at Toyota USA. Either in a field office or at HQ.

    Cons

    Since the company is massive, often there are many layers to go through for completion of some tasks, but as you grow you learn to navigate more efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    There are many opportunities to grow when one puts in the time and effort to learn.

    Pros

    Trying to improve work conditions and become more flexible with work hours and schedule. The effort is being applied currently.

    Cons

    Japanese style of work is long hours and hard work. The pay is average for the amount of expected output.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the amount of only Japanese controlled employees in America
