    Pros

    Good working conditions, friendly atmosphere

    Cons

    Your career depends on your relationships with a line manager. He is the only one who evaluates your performance and very often the decisions made is not objective at all. Also it is quite strange that people with the better expertise are paid lower than the new comers. How come? A common trend is that IT in JTI cannot get good performance evaluations. This is recommended by the senior management. No... career opportunities at all. External candidates are taken to expert positions however there can be people in the team ready to hold them.
