I worked at British American Tobacco full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Its a people focus company - Listers and Management Trainees are very well taken care of with excellent progression planning - Managers are trained and rotated regularly to learn different/new areas of business

Cons

- Youth trumps experiences so if you are in your late thirties and average performer, start looking for another job - Relationship matters significantly. So if you can talk and present well and butter up higher management, than you can work, this company is for you. - Prioritises manufacturing over supply chain - Terrible SAP system and supply chain management - Because Managers are rotated so often (for the sake of rotating and not for benefit of business), operations cannot improve (or improve marginally) over time - Many top management leading business unit have little related experiencein that specific business

Advice to Management

Time to learn a few thing from other FMCG companies ie. P&G, Unilever or even Philip Morris

    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 Management

    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.
