    I worked at JTI - Japan Tobacco International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good compensation package and pension as well as health insurance

    Cons

    Clique-ish - you are either "in" and will advance or you sit in your position for years. Difficult to work in an industry whose products harm and even kill their customers. The organization can lack compassion.

    I have been working at JTI - Japan Tobacco International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Large budget behind projects Skilled and knowledgeable staff Great pay and excellent benefits Cut some of the fluff in middle-management out

    Cons

    Company is great to employees on paper only. JTI often misleads when it comes to employee ability to work from home, office locations and internal changes. Things are never concrete, and you never quite know where you stand in the company. Micro-management is rampant. Decisions are sometimes made without full thought process, I've seen many multiple month and year-long projects scrapped upon the first presentation over simple logic. Terrible work/life balance.
