Bat is a good company to work for. The culture of the company is very good and they are looking after their employees. Their salary matches the work you do.

Best company to work for. Work-life is great. You need quite a lot about Sales and Marketing which will greatly benefit you in your career. It is unfortunate there are not a lot of opportunities because the company had to restructure and get rid of some of the positions.

Its a great company to work for based on the friendly atmosphere/attitude of its employees and its salary structure is very well structured. A big NO is their management people from top level to lower management, they lack general understanding of .managing staff. Personal Advancement in the company is Zero to Nil, unless you know someone from management who can create a position for you or encourage you to apply for a particular position. Favouritism is a culture.

One of the things i love about BAT is that you are given the space to grow but you have to be ready to hit the ground running and also have the ability to multitask should not be afraid to ask for help. You are given the freedom to manage your work provided that you deliver.

At a short space of time that I worked for BAT, I learned a lot and they gave me great assignments to work on. At this environmennt. management at BAT gave me space to work independently and achieved the desired results.
Pros
Learned more than just sales, learned about distribution, Stock management, and financial management
Cons
Some long hours, if you work at a satellite depot

They still have a long way to go. They need to constantly compare themselves with other big FMCG companies globally. They have good systems in place but they are not using them to their advantage

You start at 6am get the briefings from the senior management. after that you look at you calls for the day and plan accordingly. Route to market sell the product to existing and new customers. Open up new potential customers. when you done for the day you count you stock and balancing your cash. I've learn a lot how to approach difficult customers and closing the sales and other techniques of Sales. Management their are good but there is no room for growth it takes time for internal staff to be promoted. Getting hijacked for cigarretes. Enjoyable part was money and you are not office bound.
Pros
you buy your own luch
Cons
long hours

Very good company to work for with brilliant benefits. if I had to pick a negative, It would have to be Job Security. The Industry experiences various changes and that brings about restructering.
Pros
Great culture
Cons
The Unknown

BAT is a fun company but one has to work hard to enjoy the fun in the company.

Pros
training
Cons
Long hours
