    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Employee bonus, salary review, very good work conditions and great office based close to city center, pension, ride to work scheme, career opportunities, good management (that depends on the team though) Good work culture and social activities, such as Christmas and Summer parties

    Cons

    The salaries are quite low. Every year there is a salary review based on your goals which are pretty hard to achieve and even if you work very hard all year the maximum salary increase you can get is only 4%, which almost never happens because the team leads will always find something that was good enough.
