    I worked at Imperial Tobacco Canada

    Pros

    ITCAN have good development opportunities available to employees. Office has on site dr and gymnasium available to use and subsidised cafeteria.

    Cons

    In large organisations, politics are common issues. ITCAN is no different. There are some senior managers in leadership positions who display very poor leadership traits and behaviours. Some of these people should not be leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to listen, build trust and get to know the people who work with you and for you.

    high level of pressure (but depends on the manager), outdated technology infrastructures. platform and the main corporate website are often down

    Advice to Management

    allocate more funds to update the technology inftastructure (the only way to move forward as it significantly reduces efficiency)..
