I have an opportunity to take a job at a tobacco company. Will having experience at such a company put off future employers?

So I live in the UK and have the possibility of getting a job at a tobacco company. This would be a data based job, not directly involved in sales or marketing. Assuming I decided that the benefits and pay were enough to overcome by personal qualms with working at such a place, what do you think future employers would think? Especially if I wanted to move back into academia, do you think people might be put off by experience working in such a company?
I'd like to hear from people who have experience of vetting individuals for jobs in particular.
