    incompetent management, unhappy workers

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Greensboro, NC

    Proseven for senior scientists it's pretty much a regular 8-5 work day, good pay; workers are nice to work with

    Consa leadership vacuum in the research area; instead of having a small percentage of bad managers, the vast majority of managers/directors are bad, ranging from control freaks to bullies; managers don't greet or even acknowledge people in the hall ways; the morale is very low, everybody is unhappy

    Advice to Senior Managementdon't think current management in research has a chance to turn it around; distrust and dislike to too deeply ingrained in workers

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Work Hard - Lie for boss - what else could a company ask from its employee's

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsPros are vacation time, and benefits

    ConsYour Division Manager will take care of sales reps close to office.... because regional manager see's these areas. Outside reps are on their own. Do not get sick and ask your boss to come out and talk so your can work out time off. He is too busy. Probably on the phone with his wife again.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat sales representatives with some respect. Quit expecting them to double the work of PM and RJ and pay less and have larger territory's. Realize Division Managers are the problem -- why do so many good sales reps go bad... maybe because they are tired of not getting supplies, help or respect. They are tired of covering for the Division Managers. Also -- Division Managers seek and search to fire sales representatives that will not lie for them. Maybe the Regional Managers should look at the division managers - Time Lorillard is hones and realizes the employees they had were good. Just fed up.

    Lorillard Management does not develope or implore respect for employees or families

    Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you enjoy sales -- you can manage a territory with little leadership or help by management.

    Cons1. Management never provides P.O.S. undless their supervisor is coming to town
    2. District Manager is always on the phone to wife -- but does not care if your family sees you.
    3. I enjoyed my job -- but could not get the tools from management to do my job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize sales representatives are the link between company and businesses even in non urban areas. Care about your sales representatives and take miles into account. Unfair to treat rural reps the same as city reps. Very rude to families.

    Looks good...they use you up and leave you dry!!

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany car. Pension plan. Most of the time you work on your own.

    Conslack of leadership. History of company using employees and then dumping. etc..

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have not seen one Division Manager that is honest. You should put them under the microscope that you put sales representatives. You would be surprised. I am tired of them expecting sales reps to be quite as we cover for them to regional managers. Yes he worked with me... right. Sales reps only have one line of communication. So you better lie for them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
