    Pros

    Good for junior to mid-level management to gain challenging growth opportunities. Many chances to work and communicate with counterparts within and across regions. Good compensation. Flat and open culture, flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Very heavy politics. You need to know and be liked by the right people to succeed. Tobacco industry outlook is not good, and industry concern grows over time.

  8. Good for salary and politics, but not good for your skill up in IT

    Most of time, Company paid big money to 3rd party who doesn't have proper skill set and not helpful to your skill up

  9. Great compensation....but that's about it (Territory Marketing Representative)

    I worked at British American Tobacco

    Pros

    Excellent pay structure; $52850 starting salary + company car + free gas + company phone/laptop + paid home Internet + competitive benefits.

    Cons

    If you are looking for career advancement and progression this is not the place for you. Besides the enticing compensation package you won't get career fulfillment at this company. No form of development, so unless your content with remaining in the same role your entire career it's very difficult to climb up the corporate ladder at Imperial.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more opportunity for growth. Not everyone wants to do the same job their entire life unlike the old timers already there.

  10. Good benefits if you are there long term but only hire on fixed term contracts now and making a lot of cuts
