I worked at British American Tobacco full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

1. The experience helps to become a good manager and the experience also helps one to understand how a business enterprise in the fast moving category works.

2. For fresh graduates it is a good opportunity to groom up as a manager.

Cons

1. Involved 9-5 selling a product that is controversial. The aspect of being involved for long period of time can seriously bring about personal moral degradation that in turn can affect at personal levels in addition to the harm caused to the society in general.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not much to give other than the fact that they should act more responsibly and accept the fact that the product is harmful and in meetings there should be agendas to make less harmful tobacco products and discuss the health hazards and ethical issues in addition to profits & market share.

    Pros

    The BAT culture encourages friendships that last a lifetime. It is like an institute that teaches you corporate behavior and polishes you to become the best you can be. The external environment encourages innovation and out of the box thinking.

    Cons

    The regulatory environment is not tobacco friendly which does inhibit the exhibition of all marketing talents such as tv commercials or event sponsorships but that only makes its employees use all the available resources to the fullest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take good care of your talent. Treat them better than anyone else as with passage of time, you will only het the leftovers.
