    High work pressure and little work - life balance. Always new deadlines fo meet

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BAT full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great learning opportunity on the next product generation side to see an industry transformation and experience a more time “start-up” like industry.

    Cons

    Very hierarchical and political. Consumers matter less than internal politics. If you are not starting there, you have no support to get ahead. Generally rather under staffed on next gen product side that results unhealthy work life balance. No quality marketing or leadership trainings therefore would not recommend to start a marketing career there.
