    I worked at Rothmans, Benson & Hedges full-time

    Pros

    Some really good ppl that have been with the company for years.
    good amount of vacation time

    Cons

    Middle and Senior Management are not supportive. Strict, tough, adversarial, they don't mentor their team. Act like everything is so important, but the company is forced to micro manage to create marginal opportunities. Mired in number crunching, no real innovation or entrepreneurial spirit. Senior Managers are out of touch and just warming a seat.

    It still is a tobacco company. Long hours can happen, but they will lead to extra time off.

    Have a more straight away plan. Stop changing ideas on what's happening and expecting more. Give a plan and stick to it.

    Owner completely out of touch with many of his corporate clients and he has a total inability to provide any staff member any positive feedback. Shouting rudely is how he rolls!
