    I worked at Japan Tobacco International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary Company car Benefits Challenging work

    Cons

    -The company takes too long to adapt to market changes while the competitors are already two steps ahead. -No budget to implement worthwhile programs. -No job security. -Fearful of losing your job constantly. -Fear mongering by immediate management. “Make one mistake and you’re gone” mentality. -Company on the brink of a restructure. -No career development. -Advancement only for people who know the right people. -Bonus/pay increase has nothing to do with individual performance. -Individual goals that are set at the beginning of every year are meaningless. -A lot of procedures are only implemented so someone can justify their job and have little to do with anything useful. -An old boys club and a management that covers up mistakes for reps who they have a better personal relationship with while others get thrown under the bus. -Cold, Soulless and inaccessible management.
