    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
