    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Japan Tobacco International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great health care, holidays, pension (but min contribution has been upped so people struggling to stay in it), Christmas party (but every move is watched by management), bonus, nice location with free parking. Most people stay here because of the people they work with are good people but too many good people have left now.

    Cons

    No support from TL’s they just bow down to management. If you disagree or have an opinion your cards marked again the same if you’ve been off on long term sick. Management only have time for the staff that jump when they say, you might get a ‘hi’ from senior team or a smile but no conversation that’s only for the people they like. This place has a ‘black hole’ where many staff disappear when their face doesn’t fit. Management lie to your face to cover up their wrong doings. So much is covered up by the management team that I expect if HQ really knew what went on here they would loose their jobs. I’ve worked here for many years but have found that people only progress if they ‘like’ you. I could go on and on but feel it would not change the way things are here it’s more of a warning to others thinking of joining this company. There is no looking after the staff or treating them as human beings more the ‘needs of the business’ so staff are cast aside and not treated respectfully more like children.
