    Pros

    Loads of opportunity and well paid. The training at BAT is amazing and they really take time to spend time with you.

    Expectations are sometimes to high and not attainable regardless of how much work you put in, in an industry that is forever changing.

    Advice to Management

    As there is lots of favoritism sometimes they need to not be so narrow minded and see that there are other people with bags of potential.
