I have been working at British American Tobacco

Pros

BAT being a global company provides opportunities for travel and working in different countries, IF you make the right connections.

Cons

Honesty is not appreciated, even if it benefits the company. Sometimes management prefer to be fed with a rosy picture instead of the truth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Middle management are a hindrance and HR policies are atrocious!
