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

    Pros

    - Lots of opportunities to grow within the company, both upwards & internationally - Great modern office environment, with a "cafe" with a barista & a gym with free workout classes - You'll constantly be challenged, as the company puts a huge focus on learning and thus will give you tasks or assign you to roles in order to allow you to grow - Compensation is unbeatable (pay, bonus, other benefits) - Overall,...

    Cons

    You are expected to work hard and will have to put in long hours on a regular basis, so if you're looking for an easy, simple 9-5 job this isn't for you!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay competitive with compensation & opportunities!

    I worked at British American Tobacco for less than a year

    Pros

    none. Zilch, nada, zip, zero, nothing, not a thing.

    Cons

    You cant even get past all the application hoops. Bizarre personality test thats given by robot, and rejected within 20mins even if after hours. No human sees your application. They treat territory marketing reps like you are applying for the CIA!! TOO MANY HOOPS. And you wonder why you keep seeing the same job come up again and again?

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your ATS system, start your useless HR department actually processing applicants by hand again.
