    Pros

    Altria's efforts to recruit and retain top talent show. The Altria Field Sales Force is full of talented and motivated individuals.

    Cons

    Altria can be quite political. Getting promoted has a lot to do with how you market yourself. You have to make sure your hard work gets noticed.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond just university recruits when evaluating within the organization who may have the potential to promote.

    Overall, Altria seems like a great company to work for. It seems very accommodating and it's work environment and culture also seem to really care about a values and both its customers and employees.

    Pros

    the people, perks, Profit Sharing, salary is in the 75 percentile but they will start you low if coming in at an entry level position

    Cons

    Limited upward mobility unless you are an intern to full-time hire, old school management, too many cliques in HR which leads to a lot of group thinking, takes forever to get anything approved, very legalistic, play the game or be prepared to stay in your position forever....

    Advice to Management

    Start looking at the people who actually do the work. Management is clueless as to what does on at HQ and needs to take a look at who is directing the people who are doing to work and how qualified they are to do the job and how they are getting the work done.
