    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at BAT full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, lots of opportunity to grow, training opportunities, collaborative community. Working in an industry that is truly transforming by ideation, creativity, and willingness to take some risks.

    Cons

    Upper management (EVP level and up) is not transparent. Decisions are made at the top with no input from middle management and without seeking information about the structure and properly assessing the impact of decisions. Impactful decisions are minimally revealed and then take months to execute while everyone is left wondering and worrying. Yet, slow execution is not tolerated at the lower levels. The pace can be overwhelming and exhausting at times. Work life balance can be difficult.
