    Current Employee - Telemarketing Senior  in  Bristol, England (UK)

    Pros

    I've only been with Imperial Tobacco for a few months, In that time i've seen the companies core values every day. It's one big Family, they are one of the very few companies left that want you to do well. I'm really happy here and I hope to grow within the company, The Tobacco Industry is one of the most honest industries to work in.. And I love it when a friend or family member challenges me about it.

    Cons

    Only 1 but it is being worked on - Reporting System for Telemarketing needs some help askit needs a Jump start!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the Family feel the same, don't ever forget that people work so hard because how they are cared for by ITUK.

    The tobacco market decline - work life balance can be a bit off at times. Noy everyone is on-board with the drive for sucess and are coasting

    Pros

    great no-nonsense managers
    extremely generous pension
    work-life balance
    very little employee turnover - no fear of failing though some are simply stuck in their ways. Overall it's more a pro than con as it contributes to a very nice atmosphere.

    Cons

    I wish they had a London office so I could still work there :)

    Pros

    I have never woken up in the morning and not wanted to go to work! A bold statement however it is true. Imperial Tobacco UK is superb employer.
    I don't work in HR this is honest feedback.

    Cons

    Other people’s attitude towards the tobacco category. Anyone joining the company should expect some people in their lives to take a dim view of their new career. However as an employee you very quickly realise that you only sell and market tobacco products to adults who choose to smoke, so there is nothing to be ashamed of. Tobacco is a legal product and adults in the UK should have a right to buy it if they so choose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understandable budget cuts will always be accepted in times of recession; however there is still considerable waste within the organisation that should be reduced. This would allow for the redirection of funds towards forward thinking sales and marketing opportunities.
