    I have been working at Japan Tobacco International

    Pros

    Good salary and basically good working environment with several benefits (shares purchase, social / pension plan)

    Cons

    Japanese style - long decision processes; many political decision. People are not selected because they do a good job, but because they know somebody or somebody knows them - even if skills for a job are not sufficient at all. Japanese colleagues are sent to over to other countries to learn / develop, but often have very poor English language skills (double and triple work for other employees). HR has no power in this company.
