    I have been working at Imperial Brands full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good brands, global organization, average pay/benefits. The tobacco industry is not for the faint of heart, but if you thrive on challenge and change, it can be very rewarding. Company and brands with loads of growth potential in the US, but not confident that the correct leadership/strategies are in place yet to make it happen. Wouldn't trade a minute of the last 10 years, but excited to escape the 'growing pains' to come and move on to the next chapter in my career. Good Luck to my former CA family.

    Cons

    Buy a small, successful, streamlined company...insert incompetent leadership ... add layer after layer of unnecessary complexity ... micromanage from across the pond...talk the talk, but don't walk the walk about company culture and values ....and then act surprised at the results...SERIOUSLY?
