    Freedom through responsibility. Entrepreneurial spirit. Profit driven. Global Above average pay. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Too risk adverse. Many times it is a local company that is part of a global mnc. Difficult to implement strategies on a global scale. Regulations getting very tough on tobacco globally.

    Advice to Management

    360 evaluation would be quite a good technique to manage people. Put customers back at heart instead of profit.
