I worked at British American Tobacco full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Global reach, ability to run meaningful initiatives if you make a solid case for change.
Predominantly experienced and passionate professionals with product affinity, corporate social responsibility is a genuine part of its culture.

Cons

Potential risk of a schism between HQ and Regions/End Markets due to increasing numbers of local recruits into Globe House with insufficient 'coal face' exposure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Safeguard adequate employee rotation across the globe, which is why most people join a multinational.

    Highly political and competitive

    I worked at British American Tobacco full-time

    Pros

    Very international, good salary and benefits, good location.

    Cons

    Friendly atmosphere on the outset but one soon realises that the culture is very political and competitive. Some pretentious employees who have it too comfortable and never leave so staff turnover too low which brings in no new blood and ideas. Everyone is extremely grade conscious which determines your worth in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so arrogant and behaving like you own the company. Good management should be able to manage without having to throw one's weight around.
