Solid company with much upward growth potential in a declining industry

Manufacturing (Current Employee)
Greensboro, NC

I have been working at Lorillard full-time for more than 10 years

Pros1) Large company with a small company feel. Really good people.
2) Very competent CEO and many on the executive management team.
3) Fun being a part of a very old company that is culturally moving into a newer and more modern environment.
4) Many of the staff are dedicated employees. Very low turnover rate. Obviously the company is doing something right.
5) Competitive salary and benefits with minor exception being a very unattractive vacation program

Cons1) Like most companies, there is not a great deal of upward growth opportunity, but a smart person can really shine in this organization if they try.
2) Some of the old style management still exists which can create a dysfunctional work environment.
3) The vacation policy is something that could afford some attention and improvement. Could be a burden in attracting and landing good talent.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work and continue to drive our company forward.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Better than the rest

Sales Representative (Current Employee)

I have been working at Lorillard

ProsThe benefits are great and the pay is average versus competition, but benefits make up for a great deal of that. Company car, fuel, and maintenance are paid for by the company. Old-fashion company that keeps its eyes on being profitable more so than being number one for bragging rights. Flat out makes money and if they are making more than last year than job security is good.

ConsIt’s a tobacco company; lots of people want to make villains of an industry that provides billions of tax dollars to keep these overspending states afloat. Can not say one bad thing about management from the bottom to the top

Advice to Senior ManagementLet the guys get rid of the ties in the hot months.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
