Current Employee - Security Manager in London, England

I have been working at British American Tobacco full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Very good learning environment, full understanding of corporate culture, globally open career path, better than expected internal relations, competative level of benefits and salaries

Cons

High rate of staff rotation make you feel unsafe sometimes. There is no enough amount of control over duty performance of some departments. IT security regulations are much more strict then enough.

    Highly political and competitive

    I worked at British American Tobacco full-time

    Pros

    Very international, good salary and benefits, good location.

    Cons

    Friendly atmosphere on the outset but one soon realises that the culture is very political and competitive. Some pretentious employees who have it too comfortable and never leave so staff turnover too low which brings in no new blood and ideas. Everyone is extremely grade conscious which determines your worth in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so arrogant and behaving like you own the company. Good management should be able to manage without having to throw one's weight around.

    I worked at British American Tobacco full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great renumeration, people, career opportunities, autonomy and challenges of working within a highly regulated environment.

    Cons

    Highly political environment where numerous people were 'over-promoted' and could not back these promotions up with either the skills or experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's been a busy year of change at all levels at BAT, and it is slowly getting rid of all those that do not have the skills/experience to perform at their level. The challenge for management will be change the culture into one that moves the business forward at the same time as retaining the good talent it has. If there is one piece of advice it would be to tell the employees what the new vision of the company is and if this has not changed....how they are going to achieve this faster than what was previously being done.
