I have been working at British American Tobacco full-time for more than a year

Pros

Very good learning environment, full understanding of corporate culture, globally open career path, better than expected internal relations, competative level of benefits and salaries

Cons

High rate of staff rotation make you feel unsafe sometimes. There is no enough amount of control over duty performance of some departments. IT security regulations are much more strict then enough.

    I worked at British American Tobacco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Global reach, ability to run meaningful initiatives if you make a solid case for change.
    Predominantly experienced and passionate professionals with product affinity, corporate social responsibility is a genuine part of its culture.

    Cons

    Potential risk of a schism between HQ and Regions/End Markets due to increasing numbers of local recruits into Globe House with insufficient 'coal face' exposure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Safeguard adequate employee rotation across the globe, which is why most people join a multinational.

    Highly political and competitive

    I worked at British American Tobacco full-time

    Pros

    Very international, good salary and benefits, good location.

    Cons

    Friendly atmosphere on the outset but one soon realises that the culture is very political and competitive. Some pretentious employees who have it too comfortable and never leave so staff turnover too low which brings in no new blood and ideas. Everyone is extremely grade conscious which determines your worth in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so arrogant and behaving like you own the company. Good management should be able to manage without having to throw one's weight around.
