I worked at British American Tobacco full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great renumeration, people, career opportunities, autonomy and challenges of working within a highly regulated environment.

Cons

Highly political environment where numerous people were 'over-promoted' and could not back these promotions up with either the skills or experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's been a busy year of change at all levels at BAT, and it is slowly getting rid of all those that do not have the skills/experience to perform at their level. The challenge for management will be change the culture into one that moves the business forward at the same time as retaining the good talent it has. If there is one piece of advice it would be to tell the employees what the new vision of the company is and if this has not changed....how they are going to achieve this faster than what was previously being done.
