    Pros

    Large multinational business with opportunities for overseas assignment. Great for young, mobile and ambitious people.

    Cons

    Being involved with tobacco products is definitely a real challenge. Marketing strategies available to other FMCG are banned. So be prepared to work within legal and social restrictions.
