    Cash Rich Company
    Remuneration and Benefits

    Cons

    It's a tobacco company, you need to be prepared for that
    Culture begins to lose it's 'niceness' once you try and move up the ladder as the higher grade pay packages are superior to others in the corporate world but require a lot of brown nosing to get in.
