    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Imperial Tobacco full-time

    Pros

    Great pay, 30 days holiday, good pension scheme, travel possibilities if wanted

    Cons

    Very old, stale culture. Hierarchical, if anywhere but main office very disconnected. Same people come and stay for years so not a very young, exciting company to work for. Factories and offices are constantly shutting or restructuring. Not a very sustainable business so lots of cuts being made. Too many people for the amount of work that needs to be done.

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

    Pros

    Great package, Great Benefits, great life style company Excellent place to work hard and earn a lot, not great if you want to develop as a person

    Cons

    You must devote a lot of home real-estate to make a 'home office' Out of hours work for no extra pay No clear development strategy

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone an equal chance to progress instead of favoring established staff with the same old ideas

    I have been working at Imperial Tobacco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good environment and great colleagues. The company is always reinventing its strategies and there is opportunity to make a change and influence

    Cons

    Lack of growth opportunities at the moment and decision making is very slow, very political and you need to know how to play the game

    Advice to Management

    Don't promise performing employees about opportunities that will likely not come

    Pros

    Looks after its employees, very good salaries, very good bonuses, very good share saving program, very good pension scheme, offers free gym facilities, lockers, showers, drying rooms, free running track and football field, free parking space, free coffee, tea, milk etc., restaurants within both buildings, organising events with free food and drinks, monthly free drinks at the restaurant, dress down day every Friday, collecting money for charity.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of at this point is that we have no ATM machine in order to withdrawal cash.

    Advice to Management

    Can we please have an ATM machine? :)
