I have been working at British American Tobacco Australia

Pros

Varied & interesting work (not pigeonholed)
Ability to work from home 1 day a week (hours can be high)
Very good pay higher up the ladder
Genuine coaching/supportive culture (while things are going well to middling)

Cons

Management - progression through the ranks very much depends on your manager
Management - espouse leadership & individual ownership of results, however when significant issues/challenges occur revert to a blame mentality apparently driven by a strong tendency to protect their personal KPI's/bonuses (which can be substantial dollars)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less spin doctoring when issues occur & more backbone (i.e. more honesty, openness & integrity)

Recommends

    I worked at British American Tobacco Australia

    Pros

    Great Culture, great benefits, friendly co workers

    Cons

    convenience, obvious tobacco stigma, over time you become desensitised to tobacco even though it's such a terrible killer. A lot of social stigma from friends and others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    doing pretty well, but can't get past the fact that they try to legitimise selling cigarettes
