    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.

    I have been working at Toyota North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I’ve found the work at Toyota to be challenging yet fun for the most part. The benefits are also great, company matches up to 4% in 401k (you have to contribute 6% for this match). For those joining in the last few years that don’t get the pension are able to take advantage of an additional 5% company contribution towards 401k, even if you do not contribute.

    The campus is huge and there is a large gym with clean facilities. Overall the company has a soul and cares about its employees and customers deeply.

    Cons

    Cafeteria and campus cafes are pricy! Your manager matters. Some can be great mentors and give you lots of opportunities to learn and grow, others are more concerned with climbing the ladder rather than leading.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t overlook and leave your hardworking employees that have contributed greatly to your success in the dark. These are your future leaders so it is important to keep these employees engaged.
