    I worked at Imperial Brands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits and work life balance, willing to invest in proving support tools, that’s it. I struggle to say much more than that.

    Cons

    Terrible culture and past leadership shying away from behavioral issues which are at the core of the problem. I would strongly suggest probing these issue before applying for any role in the Irish market.

    Advice to Management

    Get a HR representative that can deal with these issues and has strong values and ethics.
