    I worked at Japan Tobacco International full-time

    Pros

    Vacation/Personal time/Holidays. They give you plenty of days off. Company vehicle.

    Cons

    Every district seems to run with different rules. Middle Management’s job is to spend time in the field babysitting you as opposed to attempting to support you. Must use your own time to get organized or do any clerical/emails. If there are problems (there are in every company), the mindset seems to be more of a “those are the rules, deal with it” mentality. A general “one size fits all” mindset for every market hinders the company’s ability to customize and cater to certain unique markets. Unless you’re willing to move, promotions are virtually impossible. Even if you’re willing to move, very unlikely. The “good ol boy” mentality is alive and well here. The amount of stress you have to deal with from this company is crazy. You have to be a top tier rep just to receive a standard 3% cost-of-living raise. If you’re given a special assignment, you’re told that it won’t affect you negatively... it will. Happens all the time to countless reps because that is “the way it is”. Constantly being hounded to “sell”, but the only incentive is to not get fired, no commission and the bonus is paid out in March. This company, at this time, seems absolutely clueless as to how things really are at the bottom.

    I worked at Japan Tobacco International

    Pros

    They try to compensate well, with salary, and providing tools, that are just necessary to perform. With this said they claim to be within the top company's labeled "best places to work" . JTI (USA) is the absolute WORST position/job - I have ever held. They could not have doubled my salary to live in misery that sales position became. There is no Real black and white as far as POLICY just a HUGE grey area left TOTALLY up to your immediate supervisor. Good luck if he decides he doesnt want you there. I beleive he gets paid to literally"spy" on his team of reps. I am positive the company does actually hire out Hourly contract workers to track the work of theyre sales reps. Unbelievable, the effort and resources they put behind "investigating" THEIR OWN TEAM. It is the most redundant wasted allocation of budget, and actually is creating the opposite of what its created for. THEYRE LOSING CREDIBILITY- In every way that Company has lost vision. WORST PLACE I HAVE EVER HAD TO WORK there micro managers and mid level managers
