    Solid company to work for

    Price & Forecast Analyst (Current Employee) Oosterhout, North Brabant (Netherlands)

    ProsGood pay and career outlook (long and stable with a promotion after after a few years). Family type company, very forgiving and room to nourish and grow skills.

    ConsPay is normal within the tobacco industry. Key competitors are more red than this blue company, which is a disadvantage. Lack of cutthroat attitude makes the company always running one step behind. Colleagues are with the company for a long time and will still be there (blocking outlook to promote upwards).

    Advice to Senior ManagementA plan to achieve business targets is not enough. Create a vision that people can rally for.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Credit analyst

    Credit Analyst (Former Employee) Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsGreat workplace, fun people. The job is fun, especially if you like arguing and being in contact with costumers ( commercial ).

    ConsIt's certainly not good for your karma. Some tasks are very repetitive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTalking about business growth without addressing public health issues is a bit ostrich-like. Maybe showing a bit more consideration, overall, for the big picture would help with the business culture.

    Job for Life... I thought they were a thing of the past

    Telemarketing Senior (Current Employee) Bristol, England (UK)

    ProsI've only been with Imperial Tobacco for a few months, In that time i've seen the companies core values every day. It's one big Family, they are one of the very few companies left that want you to do well. I'm really happy here and I hope to grow within the company, The Tobacco Industry is one of the most honest industries to work in.. And I love it when a friend or family member challenges me about it.

    ConsOnly 1 but it is being worked on - Reporting System for Telemarketing needs some help askit needs a Jump start!

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the Family feel the same, don't ever forget that people work so hard because how they are cared for by ITUK.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company

    Sales (Current Employee) Bristol, England (UK)

    ProsAutonomy, Engaged team. Pleanty of challenge but the ability to get things done and to have fun doing it despite being a controvercial industry. If you come to work here you will be pushed and challenged - but well rewarded. Having worked in other industries, if things get me down, I just think about how much better it is being here!

    ConsCan take a long time to get things done in terms of decisions. Very few cons in my view working in this business

    Advice to Senior Management-

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
