    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, the people are great and you'll have the opportunity to connect with them not only in your day-to-day but also through super fun workplace events & get-togethers

    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!
