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

    Pros

    Work life balance, benefits, vacation, pay.

    Cons

    Company has a terrible training program that you may or may not get to attend. Then they expect you to know what they didn't train you on. Management is a joke and will share your personal information with your colleagues while creating clicks. Extremely unprofessional!!!

    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.

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

    Pros

    Vacation Policy. 401k match

    Cons

    Culture is toxic. No true strategy or direction from upper management. Your work/life balance is dictated by your direct manager. Your boss is paid to try and find things wrong with your work. No trust. They will promote a good salesperson without vetting to see if they have any management skills at all. "Good Ole Boy" network in full effect for any possible promotion. No forward thinking. Stuck in the 80s. Everyone in upper management comes from different tobacco companies, and they continue to use stale ideas from the past 20 years

    Pros

    Salary and Benefits are fantastic, get summer hours to end early.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Culture is toxic, people fired left and right for no reason at all. Poor products that don't fit in the marketplace, late on customer payments which strain all relationships you can make, poor reporting systems make it easy for them to deny you bonus when you have achieved it. Ask 5 people in management the direction of the company, get 5 different answers. Want a vacation? Better not take one, or risk being bullied the rest of the cycle for being behind on your numbers. Managers rule by fear, not coaching and betterment. Account team is a revolving door. Better off underachieving and staying quiet than excelling and trying to make a difference.

    Pros

    Training and pay is very good. Also great benefits such as vacations and holidays. Raises and bonus based on year end reviews.

    Cons

    Upper Management claims they want your honest input but if it is anything except positive input they hold it against you. Also lower management plays favorites among reps and there are some very unethical managers in the company.
