    I have been working at Toyota Technical Center full-time for more than 19 years

    Pros

    Work Environment No Layoffs Good Pay Challenging Work Rewarding Work Overall a good place to work if you don’t mind overtime.

    Cons

    During peak project milestones it’s not uncommon to work long hours to meet aggressive due dates. It can persists for months at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard workers with compensation and reward slackers with no raise and small bonus.

  3. "Solid engineering house"

      Former Employee - Engineer in Saline, MI

      Positive Outlook

      I worked at Toyota Technical Center full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Good people, great products, exposure to many functions, opportunities to work abroad, stable, good benefits, constantly growing and gaining responsibilities

      Cons

      Early morning or late night meetings with Japan, cyclical nature of projects create some very heavy workloads, professional development plans could be improved, some managers are managers only because of technical expertise instead of leadership potential, some managers are assigned too big a team

      Advice to Management

      Be more strategic with how to plan professional development for team members, do a better job training managers with how to coach, and avoid running so lean that managers have too many reports

      Positive Outlook

      I have been working at Toyota Technical Center full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The people here are amazing and as a result, it's easy to love going to work every day. Management challenges you to continuously improve and to produce the best work in a healthy and encouraging way.

      Cons

      HR representatives seem to change too often (at least in my dept)- this is honestly the only con I can think of.

      Advice to Management

      I have no advice- your core values and respect for people puts you and Toyota ahead in the industry. Keep it up!

      I have been working at Toyota Technical Center full-time

      Pros

      Supposedly promotions now based on performance (not Tenure) Job Security Gym in Basement New Pharmacy on Campus Walking track, soccer field, and softball field on campus Young Atmosphere Great health benefits

      Cons

      Lots of overtime......(but get paid for it) Typically underpaid for equivalent job at other OEMs No compensation/appreciation for graduate education

      Advice to Management

      Do what you can to stop your talented engineers from leaving.... its more costly to hire and train a new engineer than to pay the current what they are worth

        I have been working at Toyota Technical Center

        Pros

        Good benefits, pay and people. Management can be flexible if you need to leave early or take time off. There is a gym in the basement that team members and their family can use for free.

        Cons

        Most work isn't very interesting. Work load comes and goes which means you're either very busy or bored. During the busy times work life balance can be difficult. Work load division does not seem equal between team members.

        Advice to Management

        Communicate more internally and take some of your own advice. Consider individuals work loads in addition to department work load.

        Negative Outlook
        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Toyota Technical Center full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Big company, excellent place to see very un-cordial supervisors in action, wonderful opportunity to practice working with TMs who behave like a spoilt child. If you want to learn how to handle rude co-workers - this is the best place to start.

        Cons

        Very negative work atmosphere. TMs behave like spoilt child - and are able to get away with anything they do - literally anything !! a TM can ask you to 'Go back to your desk' in middle of a meeting. Your tolerance will be tested. Some TMs will block your timesheets - You may not get paid !!! At times, the security badge may be used to track your location on a given day/time.

        Advice to Management

        Please monitor the movement and conversation of the TMs. They give an impression that Toyota backs them with legal support even if they harass a contractor.

        I have been working at Toyota Technical Center full-time for more than 19 years

        Pros

        Relatively easy going environment...good pay & better job security.

        Cons

        Complex environment for IT staff & users alike. Very large, dated, corporate mentality.

        Advice to Management

        Allow vastly differing business units more flexibility in opting out of managed services providers.
