Fast paced and not organized
BAT is a great company to learn time management, multi-task skills, very competitive environment, male-dominated industry and not organized for a company this size.

not bad
The people are great, also it pays well for what you are required to do. the location could be better but you will have not much of a desire to go out. overall the job itself to me is quite decent.

Great global organization. Canadian operation is high pressure
A great business globally. However, Canadian business is under pressure and seems that the overall strategy is not robust. Hence there is a great pressure on junior/ mid level management. There is focus on doing a lot, however attention to what is right and doing few but right things will improve the business and lives of many employees.
Pros
Good packages
Cons
unnecessary pressure

Don't plan to stay long! Seeking square pegs for square holes only!
BAT has a global distribution system for the delivery of cigarette brands to individual retailers. Their business model is based on creating efficiencies in that distribution system at any cost. That includes the cost of having you as an employee. The top down management approach is effectively a creativity killer.
Work life balace is talked about within this company but is not a concern. While working with them I attended a meeting where they showed work assigned (task management) to be twice capacity. In essence knowing exactly what they were doing, not caring about it, burning out their people, and having the balls to show us exaclly that they knew what they were doing all along.

Iniital salary and bonuses can be good and hard to pass up given an offer, but if you are young and have options don't choose this company. There are other company's that offer similar salary and benefits to start, having a tobacco company on your resume is a buzz kill for future opportunities with other companies.
Pros
None currently
Cons
Workload, stress, lack of creativity, top down management approach, conformity
