    Pros

    The salary and benefits package is great. The position is flexible and there is opportunity to advance if you are willing to relocate

    Cons

    Tobacco is a harmful product so you may not feel very good about selling a product that kills people.

    Advice to Management

    Management could try to eliminate unnecessary work and streamline work without trying to complicate it with "technology" enhancements.

    Pros

    Great people, great pay, flexible work schedule (in sales). Very good benefits, relatively easy work.

    Cons

    Not a place for competitive high-achievers. Culture has shifted to mediocrity and politically correct buzz words instead of performance and development. Management is much more concerned with diversity and promoting women instead of merit based promotions and concentrating on the business.

    Advice to Management

    Separate the high performers and find a way to compensate, reward, and challenge them. Low expectations and high pay are great for the majority but you are missing the boat on getting the most out of people willing and capable of doing more.
