    I have been working at Japan Tobacco International full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working conditions are great. People are generally great and nice to work with.

    Cons

    Poor development opportunities within the UK. No real development for low/middle management and really only career opportunities within certain functions such as Corp Affairs and HR. Management say the right things about staff retention and attracting new talent however most elements of change from HR continue to erode pay and benefits for staff and lower management levels whilst seemingly increasing or separating benefits for senior management levels. No direct accountability for UK senior management on local performance.

    Japan Tobacco International Response

    February 17, 2017Head of HR, UK

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are pleased to hear that the people and working conditions at JTI make it a great environment to work in. However, we are sorry that you do not feel there are enough development opportunities. Have you discussed your career aspirations with your line manager, or included them during your performance appraisal discussions, so you can look at any potential opportunities together? If you have and you feel you have not been heard, please do not hesitate to approach the Talent Management team. We would be happy to discuss your concerns and support you in any way we can. Once again, thank you for your feedback.

    I worked at Japan Tobacco International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Large multinational company potentially offering a range of jobs, salary and working conditions are good.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic decision making and control systems. Management by standard management textbook. Lot of time spent on meaningless big company games. Succession planning unclear. The family is JTI not your family.

    I worked at Japan Tobacco International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The company culture is positive, in spite of the opaque, highly bureaucratical and clientelistic top management The employee benefits are above the market average, yet below the industry Excellent working conditions

    Cons

    The top HQ management is opaque and highly political, seldom distant from the employees One has to consider the long term burden on their professional profile which nowadays is posed by working for a tobacco company
