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

Pros

Employee benefits; easy working hours; good performance of shares; employees encouraged to move around the business during their careers.

Cons

Size of the organization and/or nature of its market mean it can be relatively un-commercial and slow-moving. Many long term employees stay because they are comfortable, but lack of challenge causes complacency.

Advice to Management

Challenge anyone who says "that's how we've always done it" or who rejects a proposal because they "haven't seen that before".

    Pros

    Great team to work with under APSCSC. Friendly colleagues willing to teach you from scratch and full access to the company resource.

    Really tough work in planning team which requires OT and constant working cycle driven you crazy. fortunately, a good remuneration compensates it all.

    I worked at British American Tobacco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Diverse working environment
    Given chances to chart your own career progression ( need to tie with business needs)
    Committed for people development through job rotation within function or across countries
    Competitive compensation and employee benefits package
    Emphasize on work life balance

    Cons

    Location is far away from town. Better access by driving. Life aspects may not be so great for young professionals.
    The mix of various business units (regional/local level and different functions) make it less like working for a company driven for the same goals/priorities
