    I worked at Philip Morris USA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company with good benefits. Training and resources to do the best job are provided. If you are organized, motivated, with good interpersonal skills, you will go far. Must be willing and able to work on your own, follow guidelines and achieve set goals. Good started job. It will teach you a lot of good values and work ethics.

    Cons

    It takes a lot of hours planning and organizing. The more you accomplish, the more they want from you. It never ends, until you are stressed out or burnt out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At some point management needs to understand that there is a limit to a person's time and endurance.

    Former Employee - Territory Sales Manager Intern in Bedminster, NJ
    Former Employee - Territory Sales Manager Intern in Bedminster, NJ

    I worked at Philip Morris USA

    Pros

    Philip Morris USA is an excellent internship experience. You are not conducting mundane tasks such as paperwork or copying files, but getting hands-on experience by directly going in retail stores, working with different managers, and getting in-class instructions. It doesn't get any better than this, and the pay is great.

    Cons

    The traffic was terrible at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've worked with such great people who were open to constructive criticism in positive tones, and worked with me in areas of opportunity. No advice from me is needed.

    Tough industry that's only getting more competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to communicate to employees. I don't really have more advice than that but I need to make my 20 word minimum as required by this field.
