  1.  

    Great benefits but poor management

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Lorillard

    Pros

    Benifits, salary, vacation, yearly raise, 8-5 job.

    Cons

    Old school working environment, no work from home, no flexible hours, smoking allowed, suit and tie a must

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax a little on the attire and discourage smoking and be flexible with hours and work from home options.

    I have been working at Lorillard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, company car, decent pay. Not micro managed, on your own most days. Fast paced and competitive environment. Co workers are helpful.

    Cons

    Company has been sold and will be split between Commonwealth Altadis and RJR. Future is uncertain at best. Tobacco sales are trending down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO sold everyone out.

    Former Employee - Territory Manager in Baltimore, MD

    I worked at Lorillard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Team members, The people who I worked with are very good. Wasn't sure why some of these people did not go to another company. Valued employees in my opinion.

    Cons

    Be very careful to make sure that your territory is safe. Working with Newport Co. usually puts in urban areas that you may not be familiar with. Management can be very overbearing and totally full of themselves. Work life balance is actually pretty good Pay rate is poor compared to other tobacco companies. This company has no bonus accentive (this is important). So pay rate may seem okay, however in reality not comparable with other companies. Also be careful because this can be a somewhat physical job and there is a good possibility of being injured while working. So make a good decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just let your employees do their jobs please. Micromanaging (Big Headed Managers) are the killer for this company.

    Inconsistent message, all about numbers to impress/satisfy the next level of management

    I have been working at Lorillard

    Pros

    competitive benefit and compensation package

    Cons

    Again all emphasis is put on numbers with less regard to business judgement. Manager's primary concern is to be the top of the "list" regardless of what market dictates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a great improvement in communication, but listening is the key.
