    I have been working at JTB full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefit package, 401k, excellent health insurance

    Cons

    Very low salary and little raise for the amount of stress and work you do.
    Too many upper managements that do not actually generate profit for the company
    No holiday party or employee appreciation events - they are so cheap they don't even want to buy your stationary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay off managers in HQ that are just sitting at the desk playing with numbers all day.
    Reward employees that actually bring profit to the company.

    I have been working at JTB full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work culture is pretty laid back for Japanese standards, with overtime being tracked very closely (at least in my department) and a good work life balance being emphasized. Those around proactively ask if one is alright if someone looks a little under the weather.

    Cons

    I think any company large or small deals with issues of communication, but with the size of this company I have definitely noticed gaps that sometimes lead to unnecessary rushes of last minute assignments.

    Former Employee - Seasonal Worker in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I worked at JTB

    Pros

    All my colleagues were extremely hard-working, respectful, just an overall encouraging atmosphere to be working in. I think it would be an ideal employer for a lot of Japanese/English bilinguals, as it combines the best of both worlds: the organized and efficient business structure often found in Japan, and the easy-going attitude amongst workers (which is rare in corporate Japan).

    Cons

    The work was not challenging enough; however, my position was only available during tourist-peak season. I would've loved to stick around for more challenging responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership at JTB was great - extremely well organized and respectful. My manager made my first day of work bearable :)
