    I have been working at Japan Tobacco International full-time

    Pros

    The company really cares about its employees. Compensation package is very good. Willingness to grow internal people for managing positions.

    Cons

    I really can't find cons for the company.

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

      Pros

      Better than average pay in relation to the amount of work done. Flexible working hours lead to a good work/life balance. Benefits package is very good. Worth sticking as much as you can into your pension whilst you are here as their contributions are not reflected anywhere else. Month End/Year End do not escalate to ridiculous hours due to the current automated process. No keeping things open for the market,...

      Cons

      Far too many of the actual processes are automated so there is a lot of time spent twiddling your thumbs or doing project work which often concludes that even more tasks can be automated. Very transaction led as is the case with most BSCs. Requests are made by the market and you perform them. If you question what has been posted you usually get the below response. Most of the entities have their own accountants...

      Advice to Management

      Take heed to the above. We were actively encouraged to question and investigate problems and find our own way to resolve but in most cases the infrastructure was not there to implement it. It is laudable to try and bring this into a service centre environment but in my opinion the majority of staff are not of this ilk. For the BSC to become a place of continuous improvement and evolution and to head down this path there...

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

      Pros

      Pension scheme and nothing else!!!

      Cons

      Shockingly mediocre manager. I was lied to from day 1. Bullied and attacked for my personality from my poor excuse of a manager. I cannot believe a company like JTI allows their employees to be treated so wrongly and unfairly.

      Advice to Management

      Retrain the managers that have worked there for a long time to be more adaptable to changes, less stuck In their ways and respect their employees!!!!!

        Pros

        Great office and location. Most departments function with an adult environment which improves moral and respect for one another

        Cons

        The AP team work well and pull together whenever we need to but there is still a lack of trust and honesty within the AP team. The team still work with an element of fear and distrust driven by the TL as she speaks to the team like we are children and some comments made by the TL are rude and unacceptable, telling staff that they haven't earned their salary if they haven't completed a task, never mind if we have processed...
