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

    No opinion of CEO

    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 Management

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

    Very limited to no promotion prospects once you get to manager level Lack of career progression plans, or ignoring step plans for progression by senior management No clear communication from management on important issues such as redundancies and cuts Senior management promote their 'favourites' regardless of the performance of other team members.

    Solve the bottle neck problem at senior manager level to offer real progression opportunities for junior managers
