I worked for the finance support function of BAT called BASS AME. We worked with all the rules that was applicable to the BAT culture and environment. It was a challenging work stimulus that drove me to where I am today. I was privaleged that we were not micro managed as we did what was expected. BAT has a perfect balance between work and other activities such as regular team building events that really gave us a sense of appreciation as a global BAT employee.
Pros
Free samples of BAT products such as tobacco
Cons
commuting to work

A lot has changed since I stopped working at BAT but I loved the relaxed, friendly atmosphere. BAT really looked after their staff and potential for career growth was good until it needed to downsize the market in which I was working. You are rewarded for hard work.

I learnt how to be fast and accurate and also work under pressure because during month and year ends we would process over 120 invoices a day instead of 83 invoices that should be processed on a daily basis.

During the first week I was involved in a project to update the templates so that they can be user friendly to the customers. The project was a success because that reduced a lot of rejections due to incomplete templates.

. I find it most motivating to share with other people the exhilaration and experience of working for a global company. I soon realized that personal development is very important if I want to grow as a person and move into more senior in life. BAT has given me that opportunity to view life as a learning experience and being able to seek challenge.
Pros
team support
Cons
no security
