I worked at Swedish Match North America full-time (More than 3 years)
The company offers a great benefits package along with paid vacation and holidays. Some positions offer a company vehicle. Most employees work independently.
The workload far exceeds the amount of hours you get paid for. The expectations are constantly being increased while the compensation stays the same. There is very little to no positive reinforcement and because of this, employee morale stays fairly low. Management is not very supportive, but rather critical and condescending. The the employees are only given $25 daily per deim while working out of town. There are very few promotion opportunities without relocation. Bonus structure is based on regional goals rather than individual goals.
Advice to Management
1. Listen to your employees. They are the ones out in the field representing your company and they are your biggest asset. They spend more time at retail level than anyone else in the company and their knowledge is more valuable than your unreliable computer models. 2. Appreciate your employees. People are less likely to leave a job when they feel appreciated, not to mention the quality of their work will be better when they know it's appreciated. 3. Spend some time at retail level to stay in touch with industry trends. Don't be the unapproachable manager behind the desk, be the one who will get their hands dirty and help your team succeed. True leaders lead by example.
