    I have been working at Japan Tobacco International full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Diverse and interesting environment with people from many cultures and nationalities. Good office locations and the opportunity to travel and work abroad for those willing and able to do so. Big Company benefits. CEO very capable and looking to make real changes.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy. Endless policies and procedures that lead to slow decision making and over-consultation. Many policies are used selectively and therefore are effectively meaningless. Company calls for people to be ‘Open’ and ‘Challenging’ but in reality discourages frank feedback on critical strategic shortcomings.

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

    Pros

    Long term oriented company, investing in people. Not many companies left are like this. This is refreshing compared to US listed companies, which are unable to see farther than the end of the next quarter, despite claiming they are strategic

    Cons

    at times the decision making process could be quite slow because of the compromise culture and the highly centralized organization and decision power

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

    Pros

    I had no real idea of my career path, so a role on reception seemed like the ideal start to help me understand more about the functions within a multinational company and potential future career opportunities.

    Cons

    he decision-making process can be a little slow sometimes and convoluted processes can lead to some frustration, however, this is not uncommon in multinational companies.
