Good salary and benefit, good bonus. Open minded culture. International career opportunities.
Fast and intense pace (work life balance). High pressure. Less organized

You learn and experience alot. You are also exposed to alot of the top team members which allows you to gain more of a macro experience level.
You are a worka holic. Basically you have no work life balance especially when they are launching new products in new markets.

Very smart people, transformation journey to the right direction, can be nice at end market level.
They higher you go the more humanity disappears. No one cares about well-being or work life balance only speed and results. The CEOs always emphasizes how we overdelivered but it’s not enough= this is the way to total burnout. Clearly the 5 Ethos is really a slogan, and real values, especially when in comes to empowerment as this is a super high control environment.1

A very diverse environment with state of the art projects. Startup environment with the security of being in a large multinational. Supportive leaders
Not all projects follow through, but its expected. Low work life balance sometimes but if you love your job its alright i guess. You are treated with respect.

Great learning opportunity on the next product generation side to see an industry transformation and experience a more time “start-up” like industry.
Very hierarchical and political. Consumers matter less than internal politics. If you are not starting there, you have no support to get ahead. Generally rather under staffed on next gen product side that results unhealthy work life balance. No quality marketing or leadership trainings therefore would not recommend to start a marketing career there.2

1) BAT provides the challenging- but rewarding- experiences to employee, which motivates employee and really helps to develop skills in a very short period of time. 2) Rotation is made often within the function, which helps for the total understanding of the business. 3) For GGP, fast track program itself is a huge benefit which challenges oneself and enables one to grow faster than anyone else in other companies. 4) As an international company, almost everyday exposure to international environment is given, working between multinational colleagues and branches.
1) Would not suit for person who does not like to change or challenge stretch target. 2) It may be difficult to find work and life balance depending on which function/role you are in.

British American tobacco is certainly one of the best companies all over the world when it comes to learning new skills and developing your current ones.
The only negative thing about BAT is that there's no work/life Balance at all!
