Positive Outlook

I have been working at British American Tobacco full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The BAT culture encourages friendships that last a lifetime. It is like an institute that teaches you corporate behavior and polishes you to become the best you can be. The external environment encourages innovation and out of the box thinking.

Cons

The regulatory environment is not tobacco friendly which does inhibit the exhibition of all marketing talents such as tv commercials or event sponsorships but that only makes its employees use all the available resources to the fullest.

Advice to Management

Take good care of your talent. Treat them better than anyone else as with passage of time, you will only het the leftovers.

    I worked at British American Tobacco as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everything about BATSA is great from remuneration, benefits., work/life balance, management support, resources, reasonable stress levels, coaching and training opportunities. If you can get into management permanently employeed then they have a great leadership and mentoring programme and if you follow these and are capable at your job then you can expect regular promotions almost every 2 years.

    Cons

    As a contractor you have no job security and I at least came across one manager who treated contractors as just a purchased resource who should not have access to any benefits available to employees. This is odd as some contractors have been with the company for over 10 years. But on the whole this is not the perception of contractors. Another major issue which is actually applicable to South Africa is that due to BEE and AA getting into the company as a FTE employee if you are white is nearly impossible thus all the contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job at BATSA however things seem to restructure around a lot which can create negative or positive change.
