    Pros

    Great development, international opportunities, good pay and high ethical standards. Premises are excellent not only in the UK but also world wide. Great collaborative culture.

    Cons

    The company struggles to find its way in the none-combustible segment. The traditional markets are down and profits under pressure. The company support structures including finance will rightsize, so over time opportunities for growth and promotion will be limited.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the strategy - its working. Don't implement change in series of small cuts - just do it once and be clear with people.

    Pros

    At management level, there is a great system of job rotation every two to three years. This increases career opportunities, job satisfaction and widens exposure.

    Cons

    As the company undergoes productivity improvements, number of available jobs reduces and thus job rotation becomes a challenge.

    Get rid of the dead wood - follow though on what you say you will do and develop more of your employees
