Current Employee - Brand Manager

I have been working at British American Tobacco full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

A British company with British culture. Family oriented and caring. Presence in over 180 countries. Headquartered in London. Best in class in Trade Marketing & Distribution

Cons

Extremely hierarchical due to a layered structure. Very bureaucratic. Process driven. Despite being a consumer good company, Marketing is subservient to all other support functions like Supply Chain (especially Procurement), Legal and CORA. Very slow career progress. Despite being a global company, has very few global brands.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come out of your Boardroom and see the ground realities. Your people are highly dissatisfied!
