    I worked at British American Tobacco full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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