      Former Employee - District Sales Manager 

      I worked at Japan Tobacco International full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Lots of great coworkers at all levels - generally attempting to do the "right thing"

      Cons

      Former US GM did not seem to really understand the challenges facing the company & therefore the direction of the company was not clear or in line with what was needed to meet these challenges.

      Advice to Management

      I cannot comment on current management as left prior to their hiring.

      I worked at Japan Tobacco International full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Benefits are outstanding, guaranteed salary, easy sales (low investment products/programs), large portfolio, company car, travel expense account, quality people in the sales force, promotion opportunities, ability to manage geography as a franchise of JTI. Great experience/preparation for a future, higher level sales career.

      Cons

      Top level sales management is unqualified and political, very small footprint in the US in a declining/controversial category, ‘participation trophy’ bonus structure: top performers/talent gets paid the same as slackers/less talented people, employees promoted from within get paid substantially lower salaries than those hired from the outside.

      Advice to Management

      Need a new Sales Director to motivate talented people to perform at JTI; not motivate them to look for jobs elsewhere. The personnel in the field sales force is strong, but for how much longer? Changes need to be made at the very top and main office before all of your talented people jump ship.
