    I worked at Rothmans, Benson & Hedges full-time

    Pros

    great benefits and salary - work trips i.e. sales conference

    Cons

    This place ruined me. I was very junior when I started there and eager to grow in my role. My manager was the absolute worst and had no leadership whatsoever and it made it very hard for me to further develop my skills. I think that there is a lot of opportunity at a place like this but they are built off of seniority so its very hard to move up when you aren't receiving good feedback.
