    I worked at British American Tobacco full-time

    Pros

    Many opportunities are given even to high-caliber talents. With great skill sets, you can go up the corporate ladder really quick.

    Cons

    Often times, too much emphasis on engagement slows overall decision-making process and this hampers to make timely decisions in the fast-pacing tobacco market.

    Advice to Management

    Hope to move faster than other competitors, thereby being ahead of games.
