Great company who really look after staff

Exciting job with constant change. Salary increases annually due to performance, so no begging for increases like other companies as its black and white here. Great managers and good training. Always team events and nights out, good social company. Additional rewards offered through out the year. Great pension and benefits package. Changes not always fully thought through before happening and they often are on adhoc basis. Targets can be tough. Customers can be let down due to slow turn around on acquiring their incentives.

Highly Recommended

I worked as an EA, very stressful and fast paced. However, hard work is rewarded and acknowledged. Great benefits and generally a fun role. I was treated very well by my seniors and the Directors I worked for. Highly recommended!

Challenging, political but rewarding

Good salary and benefits, however over the past 5 years development budgets have been cut along with discretionary spend to focus on reinvestment into new categories - appropriate commercial decision, however poorly led resulting in negative work culture and leadership behaviours.

Good Workplace and Experience

Highly scientific and technology focused. Very challenging but if you get in the right team, under the right management you will be greatly rewarded. Ask lots of questions, get stuck in and avoid if at all possible to get frustrated with the IT systems.However its a great place to work with many key benefits. Good luck

Productive and enjoyable

A typical day would involve managing a team of Territory Managers accompanying them in trade executing learning and development to deliver KPI's around distribution, visibility and activation along with all the administration processes required to monitor and evaluate performance. Through various roles within the business I was able to gain experience of working as an individual territory manager and as a people manager with touch points to all functions within the company. Salary and benefits were very good which on the whole promoted a good workplace culture. The hardest part of the job was to understand and address different management styles for individuals as a people manager. The most enjoyable part of the job was successfully achieving targets as an individual and as a team.

Great salary, great benefits

Brilliant company to work for. Salary is good, benefits are great and the office is comfortable. The company is doing well and this is reflected in bonuses and benefits. It's a really interesting company to work for with many different cultures and types of people and you're induction allows you to learn all about the company's past and plans for the future. Well worth an application.

Pros

Good salary, good benefits, subsidised lunches.

Cons

Some departments being moved overseas.

Great place to work

I spent most of my career with this company which tells a story in itself. The benefits are such that once you reach a certain level of management, it becomes difficult to consider leaving!

Gran empresa en todos los aspectos, formadora de lideres, buenas condiciones laborales y posibilidades de hacer carrera.

Empresa que valora a su gente y los resultados son los que marcan las posibilidades de carrera, aprendizaje a diario por ser una empresa dinámica y vanguardista. El sistema es ascensos y desarrollo de carrera es muy completo, existe preocupación por capacitar y entrenar a la gente, los beneficios para el personal son muy destacados, existe un real compromiso por retener a la gente. Las limitaciones del trabajo para los que trabajamos mercadeo y Trade Marketing es que prácticamente es muy poco lo que se puede hacer lo cual limita su valor en el mercado. La considero mi escuela de aprendizaje y mi desarrollo personal, gerencial y técnico se debe en gran parte a mi experiencia en BAT.

Pros

Es una escuela de aprendizaje en procedimientos, estructura, actualización y nivel de profesionalismo.

Cons

Industria muy controvertida, limitaciones para trbajar en Marketing y Trade Marketing.

At your own peril

Small cog, big corporate machine. I was a scientist in a very well funded lab with very little to do and well paid in salary and bonuses. I learnt very little on the job as it is a meat grinder for results that the corporate side demand but don't understand. The lab techs were protected from much but certainly not all the corporate side, but this was getting worse when I left. I didn't go to uni to sit in 5 hour long meetings with all the weasel words from every Dilbert book being used in earnest. The scientific people are friendly but often worn down as stress increases as you climb the ladder, which was often only by deadman's shoes. The whole place will produce little of worth while it is wrapped in uncertainty in what it wants to do and strangled in red tape. I left with no other job lined up as I saw it was preferable to continuing to work there, only the money gives me cause for regret.

Pros

Salary and bonuses

Cons

Overly corporate, management constantly stressed, no real direction
