Does BAT have any sort of mentoring programme?

Pros

Great company culture, lots of managerial help, plus a lot of interns get hired on so plenty of people to relate to and easy to make friends. I loved this experience, don't let the fact that it is tobacco deter you, they treat you professionally and want to see you grow, and there is a lot of future job opportunities or opportunities to stay on afterwards.

Cons

The only con I can think of is if the internship would be working from home you would miss out on the great company culture and experience of seeing how a massive company runs on a day to day level.

How are promotions handled at BAT?

Pros

Unique culture given the company does not have a home market and is a very diverse conglomerate. Really serious about talent agenda. Usually promotions and IAs are much earlier in your career vs other companies. Mostly great management. Open, approachable.

Cons

Bureaucracy and decision making is suuuuper slow. Alignment to align on alignment session before we align our bosses to align on the aligned solution. Death through Powerpoint.

Advice to Management

All reorganizations end up cutting hands who do the job and adding directors who ask for more decks to align. Just streamline the layers and either have global P&L responsibility and final decision or local P&L and the decision. Otherwise its endless alignment and slides...
