    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

    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

    Pros

    Great Money. Unless you are working for the oil industry, you can't do much better than this. As an intern I made $23/hr before my senior year of school.

    The name on your resume also speaks volumes, as it is very tough to get hired here.

    Cons

    Stiff corporate culture and good ole boy network. I hear they have relaxed the dress code, but when I was there it was still suits and ties every day, which gets old very quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much. They do a great job communicating.

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere. There is a real culture of sharing among teammates and others in the company. Managment is very involved in your development - however, it can sometimes be too much.

    Cons

    It can be very difficult to stop working. The company demands a lot from its employees, and there is always work that can be done, as with any job where you work from home. It seems like upper managment isn't very clued in to what is going on in the field. It can be very difficult to manage and motivate people to execute your personal intiatives when there is already so much on their plates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget the little people.
