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

    Pros

    -You can't beat the benefits: tons of amenities at the HQ campus, health benefits are the best I've ever seen/experienced, car lease/discount program, etc.
    -Depending on your role/manager there is an abundance of work/life balance (WFH when needed, rarity to have long hours, lots of colleague support)
    -The company truly does have a long-term vision which creates a lot of job security/stability - no layoffs, always thinking of the next iteration of the company (from loom company, to automotive company, to mobility company)
    -The Toyota Way and other processes developed by the company are world-class and it's a great place to learn
    -If you're willing to network, volunteer and get involved in things outside of your day job you can make some life-long connections. If you decide to stay at Toyota, there are lots opportunities (you just have to wait for them to open up, which is why network, etc. is so crucial) to learn new things and move around to different groups
    -If you're willing to work hard and take on new challenges (which is sometimes volunteering for new projects) you can gain some great exposure to leaders in the organization and grow your career
    -Opportunities for contingent/contractors to convert to FTE, if desired (I did it)

    Cons

    -There are a lot of layers of management, so decisions can often take much longer than needed
    -Due to the long tenure of employees, it can take time to move up and around the company
    -Toyota isn't going to pay you the most base salary of any company out there, so if that's what you're looking for this likely isn't the place for you
    -The organization is constantly changing and moving, so if this is a problem for you, then you will not like it here (this is actually a good thing - but can be tough on some people)
    -Changing course/ new ways of doing things can often be a difficult process

    Advice to Management

    -Remove barriers for lower-level employees to get their work done and don't be the cause of things slowing down
    -Over-communicate - more information is always better than less/nothing

    I worked at Toyota North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A good company to work for in the long run.

    Cons

    Advancement is not always easy. Gone are the days when your hard work spoke for you. Advancement is more about who you know and associate with. I guess that is the way of business now days. More work with less people also now days. When I first started with the company I wondered where all of the older people were. As your years with the company grow and you get older you will realize age can contribute to your sooner than later time frame with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on your employees. Just to save money should not mean drowning your employees with work with little help and support.

    Pros

    Good pay, GREAT benefits program, great job security- they really stand behind their core value of respect for people, and ultimately they just treat their employees really well. They have so many opportunities for their employees to grow within the company- whether that's volunteering with Toyota4Good activities, joining a BPG and getting involved that way, attending the many events held for team members onsite (like the recent Toyota Team USA Day), or participating in things like the innovation fair or the newest competition, "The Tank". There's no end to the opportunities here and as long as you take advantage of them, you will be able to grow in your career here and meet new people and find a home in Toyota.

    Cons

    It's a large company, so you do have some of the bureaucratic red tape that can come with that, and slower decision making at times. Their benefits for maternity leave & paternity leave could be improved as well as we see other companies really setting the bar in this space- I think they recognize this but hoping to see this improve in the coming years.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to create opportunities for your team members to rotate into new positions and grow within their careers. If that next level isn't open now, help team members understand what their path could look like and what other options might be. We have long tenured employees here which is great, but it can sometimes make it feel difficult to get that opportunity to take our careers to the next level, so help us then to understand what other options or opportunities might be until that position does come available.
