    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.

    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.
