    Pros

    only pro here is paid benefits

    Cons

    absolutely no room for growth. most jobs are not even posted, people just "show up" and they are full time hires. No incentive for merit, those with advanced education and exceptional experience are not valued. No support for management ineptitude from HR is available.

    Advice to Management

    Please look at someone's background and education, not who they are related to when promoting team members

    Pros

    The best part of Toyota Tsusho is the health insurance, however, the health insurance package has gone down hill and now you have to be BLOOD TESTED to get the health insurance package.

    Cons

    Managers drink frequently on and off the clock. Smoking is allowed INSIDE the building. Harassment is tolerated and encouraged. Frequent harassment from management is standard practice. HR will not help you if you have been harassed, instead they will try and find a way to fire you. This is a "good ol' boys club". Women are treated poorly by male management and other male employees. They are very strict on being late or missing work. You will be written up if you are a few minutes late. Some employees work their fingers to the bones, while other employees play on facebook all day long. Management will pile work onto hard working employees and let lazy employees slide by with little to no work. Hard working employees quickly flee. Employees that have been there 10+ years know they cannot/will not be fired for anything, so they slack off all the time. On the job training is spotty, at best. Most new employees don't know what they are doing and no one is really training them.

    Advice to Management

    Start weeding out your bad managers. Fire long time employees that are lazy. If your managers keep playing favors to their friends and treating hard-working employees poorly, you will never have a good workforce.

    Not micro managed, as long as you get your work done no questions are asked. Great benefits.

    I have been working at Toyota Tsusho full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots to learn in logistics management industry and Toyota Way. Fairly stable company. Got chance to travel and explore the world.

    Cons

    Better to learn Japanese to communicate with Japanese expats.
    Corporate admin needs to improve a lot to match other big companies.
