    I worked at Toyota North America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Overall Toyota is a great place to work. The company truly cares about the employees and wants to make the company a better place to work. The pay is good, benefits are fantastic, and co-workers are mostly great. It is mostly younger engineers at the R&D locations and that contributes to a relaxed work environment. I had 3 different managers in my tenure at Toyota and I liked all of them on a personal and... professional level. Most employees and lower level management will help out anyone in need. Some interesting projects and career growth opportunities.

    Cons

    1) The biggest negative to working at Toyota is the work life balance. This is dependent on department and role but overall if you are an engineer (especially in design), you will be working long hours. In many cases lower level managers are also working large amounts of overtime. There's too much work to go around. This creates a very negative atmosphere during projects and the feeling that there is never enough... time to do a good job. The high workload is cyclical in nature so it's not constant but it does take a toll on personal life. 2) For younger engineers or engineers with little experience, there should be a mentor-mentee relationship. This would get rid of much of the waste that happens when someone new doesn't know how to complete certain tasks. There needs to be more direction given and expectations laid out.

    Advice to Management

    Lower/Mid level management are already aware of the work/life balance issue. They seem to care and are trying to improve the situation but a big company culture change needs to come from above.

    Pros

    Pay structure, insurance is top notch

    Cons

    Long hours, management is horrible, vacation days are too few, too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Understaffed in many production areas. If you are not a brown nose, you will not move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, throw out the good ol boy system, get rid of incompetent management, group leaders. Improve morale by making employees feel like you care.
