    I worked at British American Tobacco for 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 ManagementAdvice

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