Consistent and Steady

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Lorillard

ProsThe company has been in business for 250 years and has shown profit and growth during its entire tenure. It is not the biggest, but it doesn't strive to be. It is a no nonsense company that does the best it can in a challenging industry. The requirements are challenging, but not overly excessive.

ConsThe industry continues to shrink and this might limit mobility. However, the company does not "binge and purge," which means the company expansion is consistent with market conditions. The federal government will continue to have a larger role in this industry, but difficult to say how much and how that will affect employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company must remain nimble and able to take advantage of opportunities. This can best be accomplished by remaining lean and controlling costs.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good company - excellent benefits-well-managed

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Cheyenne, WY

I have been working at Lorillard

ProsSelf -direction, working independently, opportunity to make excellent salary, benefits are excellent, thanks to ownership of insurance company - of couse, one arm of the company sortof creats the clientele for the other. Wonderful perks like minimum 5 weeks vacation, great retirement, company vehicle, and you can set your own schedule. If you get a good
group of people to work with - this job is wonderful.

ConsLadder-climbing junior management create situations and trim staff to suit their ambitions - costing the company some of its best and brightest. Also - never tell your kids what you do for a living, since they will be hounded at school
by the anti-smokers. Get use to people asking you for freebie cartons. And you mightas well take up smoking yourself, since most staff meetings are in smoke-fileld rooms.

Advice to Senior ManagementRespect your staff more -trust their judgment - they are the noes in the trenches in what is a very unpopular occupation

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
