Change is a key word when it comes to BAT, most of the management of certain departments should be changed before you lose all your raw and young talents

    I worked at British American Tobacco

    Pros

    When I worked there BAT had a Community dedicated to professionalism. There was always opportunity to develop and use your skills and much mutual respect between ALL members of the company.

    Cons

    Could easily get lost in the business and lose work home balance. The work for me was always varied and interesting which from time to time demanded more of my attention than it should have

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on what differentiates British American Tobacco from other corporates, including how you value and reward your staff.

    I have been working at British American Tobacco

    Pros

    Environment is very cordial and encouraging for employees to put in their best to deliver the results. You Rock tier 3 reward is a good to tool for appreciation of the work done by employees.

    Cons

    The organization is too much process oriented, which is a big time hurdle for speed to market and to respond competition well on time. This is causing the business loss may be the implications would be shown in the longer run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a marketing driven company, Marketing department is not being given the due importance whereas the other support departments influence the decisions of marketing team in a great deal.
