Toshiba was great
Toshiba was a great place to work. They worked as a team and valued their employees. They compensated you fairly and provided great benefits.
Made great friends there.

Lack of Vision
Most new employees perceive Toshiba as a large international Company with room for growth and career advancement. The reality is recent employees do not last since employees perceive that Toshiba is not living up to their end of the deal of providing career development and various benefits in exchange for the work they do, hence they’re less inclined to live up to theirs, often becoming disengaged, displaying passive aggressive behavior or letting work quality slip.

Employees who are there has been there for over 25 to 30 years, hence an ingrained culture and resistance to change and ideas from new blood. This is reflected in their corporate logo which has changed from " Toshiba - leading innovation" to just "Toshiba".


The company has changed names at least three times in less than two years. So much for forward thinking.


If you are laid back, has no ambition, looking for just a job, pay and go home, Toshiba may be for you.


If you are looking for a challenging career, proper management, motivation and career advancement, this is not the company.

A day in the life of Toshiba—bad company culture
Poor internal communication, micromanagement, hyper-competition, focus on profit, office gossip, poor management & leadership, & no office discipline.

Great customers base to work with
A typical day includes managing accounts as a primary service engineer and performing service tasks as required. The culture in the workplace is not great and there is a lack of recognition for hard work or team work. The best part of the job is helping the customers who appreciate your effort
Pros
job security
Cons
too much travel and no room for advancement

Challenging high-technology sales & marketing environment
My role as a Regional Sales Manager provided me the opportunity to set my own schedule, interact with my many dealers and their customers, and combined the excitement of outside sales with the stability of managing a dynamic network of channel partners.

Joining the MED Club
I worked in the marketing of medical systems department at Toshiba. It was a great learning experience and a lovely, tight knit place to work. I really enjoyed it.

Une surperbe experience et des rencontres magnifiques
Pas une journee ne se ressemble, et chacune d'elles ammenent son lot de surprise.
Les gens y sont dedies et tres souvent a l'ecoute des autres.

Les styles de management sont tres eteroclites ce qui parfois entrainent des performances par services, a double niveau.

J'ai effectue des recrutements, un processus different d'en Europe, qui m'a fait evolue dans l'approche de l'autre.

Des collaborateurs avec un reel esprit d'equipe et d'une grande cohesion. Ce qui est un manque cruel dans d'autres services.

J'y ai rencontre des gens formidables qui pour certains sont devenus de veritables amis.

Un experience de vie unique!
Pros
Autonomie, des colleagues genereux, des gens a l'ecoute, une grande solidarite
Cons
Manque de leadership, peu de vision strategique a moyen et long terme

The do's and don'ts working with Toshiba Business Solutions, Burnaby
Toshiba Business Solutions- Burnaby BC

As I was advised Toshiba Business Solutions are fairly new in Western Canada.Any new candidate hired has the responsibility to identify sales opportunities through cold calling and leverage existing internal sources of sales leads for our full line of MFP (multi functional printer) products/ Creative and Production Colour Solutions in a specific geographic territory.

Prepare and present sales proposals and conduct equipment demonstrations. Achieve and exceed sales target.


While I can concur with the hiring policy of Toshiba Business Solutions,but reject the notion of identifying sales opportunities through cold call and or leveraging existing internal sources. The resource tools were from Dun and Bradstreet dated from 2012. No up to date generating leads other than Dun and Bradstreet 2012.


Found that some 28% businesses were no longer in business, 20% were businesses like Tim Hortons, MacDonalds and small pantry grocery stores to try to sell them copiers.


Some 40% called had already set up and with leasing contracts with Xerox, Canon, Ricoh and HP Copiers and were not interested to change. Only 1.8 % were customer's of Toshiba Business Solutions, having a service contract but not willing to up grade due to money. Only 0.02% of the total of 2600 Dun and Bradstreet 2012 leads lead to an invitation and a proposal of which not one materilized into a sale. For what ever reason in the end they decided to buy a Canon, Ricoh other than Toshiba copiers.


There were some 34 proposals done by a previous employee early in the year.

Pros
One month training
Cons
No decent leads, Manager wanted a commitment of sales no matter what
