Great Company

Sales (Current Employee)
Bristol, England

I have been working at Imperial Tobacco full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAutonomy, Engaged team. Pleanty of challenge but the ability to get things done and to have fun doing it despite being a controvercial industry. If you come to work here you will be pushed and challenged - but well rewarded. Having worked in other industries, if things get me down, I just think about how much better it is being here!

ConsCan take a long time to get things done in terms of decisions. Very few cons in my view working in this business

Advice to Senior Management-

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Solid company to work for

Price & Forecast Analyst (Current Employee)
Oosterhout, North Brabant (Netherlands)

I have been working at Imperial Tobacco full-time for more than a year

ProsGood pay and career outlook (long and stable with a promotion after after a few years). Family type company, very forgiving and room to nourish and grow skills.

ConsPay is normal within the tobacco industry. Key competitors are more red than this blue company, which is a disadvantage. Lack of cutthroat attitude makes the company always running one step behind. Colleagues are with the company for a long time and will still be there (blocking outlook to promote upwards).

Advice to Senior ManagementA plan to achieve business targets is not enough. Create a vision that people can rally for.

Credit analyst

Credit Analyst (Former Employee)
Montreal, QC (Canada)

I worked at Imperial Tobacco as a contractor for more than a year

ProsGreat workplace, fun people. The job is fun, especially if you like arguing and being in contact with costumers ( commercial ).

ConsIt's certainly not good for your karma. Some tasks are very repetitive.

Advice to Senior ManagementTalking about business growth without addressing public health issues is a bit ostrich-like. Maybe showing a bit more consideration, overall, for the big picture would help with the business culture.
