    I worked at British American Tobacco full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    * As a new joiner, you get great hands on exposure to the job through training and other on the job opportunities
    * Good processes and systems
    * Good job security; at least used to be when I was there. Lots of tolerance for poor performers and a reluctance to take adverse decisions on people
    * Good progression if you manage your perception and visibility
    * Good benefits

    Cons

    * Lots of politics and managing upwards. Careers, ratings and promotions are decided based on who is your "sponsor" and your "visibility" as opposed to your competence, capability or performance
    * No work / life balance. Not because there is any work (actually there isn't any) but because you are expected to stay long hours to create your visibility
    * Lots of incompetent and ego driven senior managers
    * Lack of ethical standards in quite a few businesses
    * Tobacco industry
    * Stagnant culture in the recent years with lots of good people leaving the organisation

    Advice to Management

    You really need to review your organizational future. It is a general consensus amongst the current employees that the culture is going downhill with a lot of incompetent people making it to the top.
