    I have been working at Altria as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easily the best internship or job experience I have ever had. Lots of freedom, and real projects that have real impacts. Management is incredible and they know how to treat their people!

    Cons

    None! They are open to any ideas and recommendations you may have. If you feel there is a problem with something, no one will bat an eye about helping you.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Benefits are very good, pay, vacation and medical. Company car is nice. Training is good and available to those who want it.

    Cons

    Usually Have to move to get promoted. It can be a tough industry to work in at times as tobacco isn't accepted social. Communication isn't always good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more realistic on promotions, not everyone wants to move. We have lost good employees because of this.
