    Bureaucracy and Ivory Tower syndrome holds back the potential for growth and limits success.

    Current Employee - Sales Development Executive in Fort Lauderdale, FL (US)

    I have been working at Imperial Tobacco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Outstanding Medical benefits. Somewhat flexible with time.
    Employees are always open to adapt and follow new strategies. There's will.
    Stock could be higher if practices are more organized all across the globe.

    Cons

    They have an Ivory Tower syndrome: Trying to decide from the UK what's best for every market in the world when THEY DON'T KNOW THE LOCAL MARKETS. If you reflect on this, you can see why they're limiting growth and success.
    Career aspirations are not taken seriously. It is mandatory to include them in the performance appraisals but nothing happens after that. There are no serious budgets for training.
    Disorganized/ Bureocratic/ politically charged company. Sales and Marketing strategies are weak at best. They keep changing every quarter or so (how are you going to measure success with so little time).
    The process to get investments approved is ridiculously bureaucratic and inefficient (they confuse being 'cost conscious' with fiscally responsible). Example: You can get a budget approved for a project by all levels. However, they can take away those funds at any point during the project. This creates a lot of risk of work not being delivered as planned and affects many areas of the business. I don't think they believe in best practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the 'DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO' modus operandi.
    You have great people who are willing to follow leaders with charisma.
    BE MORE FLEXIBLE WITH MANAGEMENT IN LOCAL MARKETS (especially the US = now your bigger market )
    Embrace change

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
