    I worked at Philip Morris USA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best in class training
    Ethical company standards
    Competitive compensation, DPS, bonuses

    Cons

    Work-life balance is hard to maintain
    In and out of a minivan, regardless of weather, calling on liquor and convenience stores
    As the company takes on new categories and brands, employee workloads increase without additional support or compensation...there are only so many hours in a day
    Promoting past Unit Manager is difficult due to the very limited number of DM positions

    Pros

    Friendly environment, good management, great co-workers. I miss them all!

    Cons

    I can't find anything bad about this company. Maybe, hard to get a position there?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job! I used to get many thank you notes from CEO, vice-president and dept heads. Those thank you notes helped me to work harder and appreciate that I worked for a great company!

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

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. I received leadership training along with safety training, which I use to this day. I am looking for another job where the benefits can be as outstanding as they were from this company.

    Cons

    Working in a tobacco environment can be annoying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had a lot of off time once I worked my way up to it. Week of the 4th and Christmas week were automatic with pay even if you were not employed for a long length of time. Time off was great and benefits were too. Compensation package such as severance pay was great after the company closed.

    Former Employee - Sales and Marketing

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

    Pros

    Excellent training
    Promotional opportunities with determination, dedication and hard work
    Top salary and great benefits

    Personally, I started out as a sales representative and was promoted 7 different times. I moved to 5 different states with my final destination being at corporate headquarters in marketing. When I was hired, very few women were in management positions with even fewer women willing to relocate their family. Times have changed and opportunity is up to the individual's passion and hard work. Raises are mainly based on merit and PM has a great 401K.

    Cons

    Corporate politics - you do work for a large corporation!
    Work / Life balance can get wacky if you let it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand a mentor program to more employees within sales
