    I have been working at British American Tobacco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    BAT is presint in almost all countries of the world. It is possible to do a multinational career. Pay is relatively better, though it is getting more squeeze.

    Cons

    Difficult to get promoted if not from graduate scheme. Promotions depend mostly on who you know and subjective one-two interactions with senior management - probably this is same in any other big organization.

    Flexible working hours,

    Cons

    The working environment is full of politics. Employees and Management is very racist.

    No professional working environment to work for
    This was a worst place I have worked for.
    Never recommend anybody to work.

    I worked at British American Tobacco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The environment is awesome, with cool colleagues and managers that are eager to work hard and party harder. There are a lot of opportunities to learn and develop yourself.

    Cons

    Considering that the company is growing pretty fast, there are many of the processes that must be revised and stabilized. Once all of this is done, the environment will be even better

    Advice to Management

    The management splits between old generation and new generation. The old generation doesn't understand the millenials and it's quite hard to connect with them. The new generation might use a bit more experience and rigorousness.

    A lot of activities, keeps the team always busy. Management open to new approaches for the tasks completion.
