dynamic workplace with great overall work culture
Trade marketing (Current Employee), Durban, ZNMarch 17, 2014
Pros: company benefits
Cons: always on the road, i would prefer a more balanced time for office and infield work.
within the team i am in - we have a weekly morning meeting on a Monday. The rest of the week, you are able to leave straight from home and go infield, seeing the customers routed to your call list for the day.

Manager would join and come work infield at any given time, to teach, assist, or observe.

i work within a team of 6 diverse members, who all – more... get on great and are willing to help out wherever neccessary.

The most difficult part of my job is the ristrictions in tobacco due to legislation.
The most enjoyable part is the people i socialize and iteract with on a daily basis. – less

Trade Insight Executive (Former Employee), Costa RicaFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: career paths
Cons: work/life balance
This was my first job and I couldn't ask for more. I learned a lot, they invest in you, in your development, sending you to different workshops and teaching you on the job.
They have a great career path definition and respect this most of the time. They invest in their managers so they can be properly train to manage people.
The only inconvenient is – more... that you are so interested in do a great job and be in the spotlight so you can grow fast that you forget about your personal life. – less

Proud to be part of a winning organization
SALES REP (Former Employee), Johannesburg, GPJanuary 10, 2014
British American Tobacco is a giant within the industry it operates in. Working the exposes you to professionals in different fields and such a diverse staff that have made sure the company remains in existence. Anyone can be proud of being part of this winning organization and i believe that if they keep employing the right people and making sure they – more... are happy, they will continue to rise from strength to strength despite regulations that negatively affect the tobacco industry. Lazy people could never survive in this company. A typical day starts at six and could easily end after six in the evening. A learnt to embrace the importance of hard work. as in any other organization, there will always be dissatisfied employees but its always important to associate oneself with the positive people. In my job, you are always at a risk of a hijack and the hours stretch depending on your territory and hence the importance of high levels of motivation. Knowing that i am making a difference within my territory in the manner in which my customers conduct business brought me much satisfaction. – less

Very productive
Technician (Former Employee), IbadanJanuary 6, 2014
Pros: free launch, healthcare for my entire family.
Cons: long hours during night shifts.
Work was 12 hours per day, alternating between morning shift and night shift. We had to be trained on the use and repair of cigarette production and packaging machines, before we could start work. We always worked in teams since the machines were large. The hardest part of the job was fighting off sleep during the night shift. The most enjoyable part – more... of the job in when we had to travel out of the country for further training on the machines. – less
