The management team needs to be refreshed with some new eyes and personalities to overcome the challenges.

Encouraged, they want everyone to be a jack of all trades, but do not honor the promise of increased pay for the effort.

Support from management

No support from management, and do not make your own decisions in any customer facing role. If the customer does not like what you said they are invited to report you to your manager who will not back you up.

Career Development

Little to no career development/movement internally. Management is not interested in your career.

Overall compensation for your work

Constantly told that they pay me so much, when it was a cut from previous positions. They do not like to pay for overtime for those that are entitled - if you put in for too much overtime, they will make you salaried and still expect all the work to get done.

Job Security

Customer facing role - look out! you can be replaced for any reason!

Suggestions for improvement

  • If you want to talk about being a "partner" with your clients - then actually do it and make some hard suggestions, back up your employees, and REALLY be a partner - not just their stooge.

What I like about the company

The people have been beaten into submission and they are all humble.

What I dislike about the company

No support by management what-so-ever - no backbone.

What I like about the company

Good company with commitment to helping development resources perform their jobs while also being able to live their lives.

What I dislike about the company

The Corporate direction of a Retail hardware and software provider is hard to predict, thus many projects are left by the wayside after much investment

Company Culture

Management took more of a reactive than proactive approach toward challenges and issues as they came up. Very short-sighted.

Support from management

I had a wonderful manager for most of my time there. Perhaps the best in my career. He was the exception rather than the norm and was usually at odds and contended with other departments that was more in line with the corporate status quo. He was the main reason I stayed as long as I did. He would get five stars but alas, he is no longer with the company and I would guess for many of the same reasons. The two star rating goes to the overall short-sighted, reactive management culture I put up with during my final years. Very self-serving, condescending, more intent on attaining quarterly bonuses, and not considering the best interest of the customer or their employees.

Teamwork

Teamwork was great within my specific group - not so well when interacting with other departments. Quite a bit of bickering and petty jealousy in the management levels which resulted in friction between the individual contributors who needed to coordinate and interact with each other. Made for a very unpleasant and stressful environment.

Freedom to work independently

Had quite a bit of leeway actually. This was both a good and bad thing. I was able to come up with my own solutions and was empowered to make certain decisions in the the best interest of the customer as well as the company. The downside was that it was sometimes difficult to ensure my efforts were properly aligned with management's objectives and overall goals. I am happy to have such flexibility and autonomy but I expect reasonable feedback and for management to sign off and take overall ownership of any activity for which they have ultimate responsibility!

Internal Communication

Communication between departments and work groups significantly deteriorated from bad to worse during the final three years with the company.

Gender Equality

No complaints although I am a male and no direct female peers. Field Service Engineering not appealing to most women? If there was gender discrimination, I was not aware of it.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Recent reduction in workforce saw many faithful employees - some who had 30-40 years shuffled right out the back door as if they didn't matter! They should've been treated better and given proper honor and sending off from management and their workmates! Instead, they were treated no differently from someone who was terminated due to misconduct! This was Inexcusable!

Career Development

20/20 hindsight here - great for recent graduates to spend 3-4 years, get some experience, and move on. Forget about moving up the corporate ladder! Of course this is now the case with most companies. The days of a "career company man" are long gone! I stayed far too long.

Overall compensation for your work

No complaints about the compensation. My objections to this company has anything to do with money.

Office / Work Environment

Mixed sentiment here. There was good camaraderie among peers within a specific group but left much to be desired when working with other departments.

Environmental Friendliness

No complaints about their environmental consciousness.

Work-Life Balance

Tried to keep the two things separate. Had plenty of time off. Really was up to the individual though.

Company Image

They really have an overly inflated estimation of themselves. They could not meet a delivery date to save their lives and could not be depended upon to keep their word! Management loved to tout NPS Scores but the truth came out whenever I talked directly with customers and distributors. Their only saving grace is some employees dedicated to customer service and striving to do the right things.

Job Security

Used to be outstanding but due to some horrible business decisions (and very little, IMO, to do with oil and gas) they had to enact a significant reduction in workforce and rumor is they are still not out of the woods! I count myself fortunate to be included in the layoff. Those remaining are very unsure of their future!

Handicapped Accessibility

No complaints but I have no disability.

Challenging Work

Very challenging. I did learn quite a bit and not sorry for the experience.

Inclusive / Diverse

Once again, a mixed experience. Very much so at first working in marketing/applications groups. Not at all with Field Service Training. Felt isolated and often disrespected by department manager - a sentiment shared by immediate reporting manager.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I understand the importance of budgets, charts, and spreadsheets but this means absolutely nothing if there is no vision for success! You were half-hearted in the expansion of the MV business and hardly took time to examine and improve the manufacturing processes or address inefficiencies that resulted in abysmal on-time performance! Now you are not only stuck with production space you do not need, you lack any vision required to regain business that would ever fill this floor space! Toshiba is the perfect example of a company with "ADD!" You are a engineering and technology driven company and I always understood this. Perhaps you should stick to what you know best?

What I like about the company

The experience. Good product to represent.

What I dislike about the company

Their present management culture leaves much to be desired.

Company Culture

Most unfriendly environment I ever worked in. Lots of long term employees who thought they and their organization was the best. But they weren't and didn't know it but that knowledge would burst their bubble.

Challenging Work

The quality of their software is terrible. Very poor design with patch on top of patch on top of patch. Not concerned with making it better but just not breaking anything. It was the only place I ever worked where I was not proud of the code I worked on.

Suggestions for improvement

  • We could be better about making internal improvements. We are often stuck in a "we've always done it that way" mentality. Innovation is key in today's business environment.

What I like about the company

The company is stable and has over 100 years of history making consumer and industrial products. Toshiba's employees are proud of their company and tend to stay for the long term, many have 30+ years with the company.
