      Great company

      May 4, 2021 - Senior Manager in Winston-Salem, NC

      Pros

      Excellent benefits, lots of opportunity to grow, training opportunities, collaborative community. Working in an industry that is truly transforming by ideation, creativity, and willingness to take some risks.

      Cons

      Upper management (EVP level and up) is not transparent. Decisions are made at the top with no input from middle management and without seeking information about the structure and properly assessing the impact of decisions. Impactful decisions are minimally revealed and then take months to execute while everyone is left wondering and worrying. Yet, slow execution is not tolerated at the lower levels. The pace can be overwhelming and exhausting at times. Work life balance can be difficult.

      A Complete Disaster of Late

      Pros

      Company car minus $175.00 monthly Some phone allowance Some internet allowance Vacation (if you choose to use)

      Cons

      My goodness, where do I begin? I have no idea how BAT has 4 stars. If you want true reviews, look up reviews for "Reynolds American". Since Project Propel in July, 2020 it is a complete, aimless wreck. Our customers can't believe their eyes. They are forced to carry all of these items that everyone knows will never sell in their market. Maybe the big cities on the east and west coast... All of this running and moving the same category with POS changeover after changeover and remerchandising the same categories monthly. The merchandising on Brand Load Guidelines doesn't make sense and creates out of stocks for the Vapor section. We are held to a standard that unattainable. Number one in the nation in several categories yet the management doesn't reward us. Just more mundane, meaningless work. I speak for ALL of my peers when I say we feel like we are on a hamster wheel, going nowhere. The only thing I look forward to is the weekend and days off. On saturday evening I am dreadful that Monday is only another day away, then back to the three-ring circus for another five days.

      Pros

      Company car provided $175.00 deducted from your salary. Great health Benifits and 6% 401k company match.

      Cons

      To many products to manage and sell in to retail outlets, with out commissions. Company continues to add more responsibilities while growing its revenue but still the lowest paying company for the position as a Territory Manager.
