    I have been working at Toyota North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Toyota offers their employees competitive salaries, a great benefits package, and tons of onsite amenities meant to encourage a healthy work/life balance, fitness, etc. Most importantly, when they say that respect for people is a core pillar of the Toyota Way, they mean that. I've been with this company my whole career (started as an intern and was hired on full time almost 5 years ago), and have no plans to leave any time soon. I'd recommend Toyota to any family member or friend.

    Cons

    As with any large corporation, decision making can be a process at times, with many layers of approvals needed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue supporting your team members and give them the autonomy to make decisions and learn.

    I have been working at Toyota North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great culture. Focus on cooperation , teamwork and challenge. Company is always adapting and changing so you need to be ready for change. That so many people there have been with the company 20 years plus tells you what a good employer they are.

    Cons

    Can be bureaucratic and slow moving at times. Some silos that mean different departments don't always work together as well as they could.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to recognise those leaders in the organisation that think and act considering the whole organisation rather focus solely on their own KPIs.

  8. "Intern"
