Great company to work for

Current Employee - Project Manager
Current Employee - Project Manager

I have been working at British American Tobacco full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great atmosphere, career opportunities offered to ambitious people, reasonable to great compensation, great people around wherever you go in terms of location or department

Cons

Politics seem to be more important than anything, stakeholder management takes lots of time and slows decisions, the good part of it is the democratic aspect everybody knows and agrees, the downside is that sometimes is exageratted and overrated in disfavour of results

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Speed up decisional process by trusting and empoweringnpeople in a genuine way

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
