    Pros

    Company car, insurance paid for, registration paid for, home internet and cell-phone allowance, 401k

    Cons

    Always expecting more work with same pay. No quarterly bonuses, no commission, expected to always hit sometimes unrealistic sales objectives with no additional reward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All managers should be held to the same standard. They need better leadership training and more accountability for their actions. Their teams performances is a clear reflection of how they lead.

    Pros

    Altria values its employees by providing great training and benefits. Salaries are not the highest, but they make up for it in other ways.

    Cons

    Upper management is still somewhat old school, going back to the 'old boy' network. This has improved significantly in recent years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for greater communication and feedback among the rank and file. Managers should be able to challenge senior management, which can actually improve the overall decision making process.
