I worked at Imperial Tobacco full-time (less than an year)

Pros

great no-nonsense managers
extremely generous pension
work-life balance
very little employee turnover - no fear of failing though some are simply stuck in their ways. Overall it's more a pro than con as it contributes to a very nice atmosphere.

Cons

I wish they had a London office so I could still work there :)

    I have been working at Imperial Tobacco

    Pros

    I have never woken up in the morning and not wanted to go to work! A bold statement however it is true. Imperial Tobacco UK is superb employer.
    I don't work in HR this is honest feedback.

    Cons

    Other people’s attitude towards the tobacco category. Anyone joining the company should expect some people in their lives to take a dim view of their new career. However as an employee you very quickly realise that you only sell and market tobacco products to adults who choose to smoke, so there is nothing to be ashamed of. Tobacco is a legal product and adults in the UK should have a right to buy it if they so choose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understandable budget cuts will always be accepted in times of recession; however there is still considerable waste within the organisation that should be reduced. This would allow for the redirection of funds towards forward thinking sales and marketing opportunities.
