    Pros

    At Altria the only two Pros I can think of are the Pay (consistently high than similar jobs int the area) and the benefits are good as well.

    Cons

    Upper and executive management who expect every one to cater to them. Huge egos that would that are constantly fed by bottom feeding lackeys.

    Very heavy workload. Little or no work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Good pay for first few years
    Good benefits & 401k
    OK vacation time

    Cons

    Old school management needs to retire.
    Good old boy network selects very, very few for fast track.
    Because of head-count freeze there is no longer lateral job opportunities and lateral
    opportunities can provide the change needed to survive another year or two.
    NO work-life balance. If you need time for kids at school family related you are frowned upon & made to feel you are taking advantage of the company.
    Once management looks past you, you could cure cancer & it wouldn’t help your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All our true technology people are leaving the company. We have a poor career path for our technology people. You in upper management like to say “We are not a technology company” but we are. Look on any desktop. Stop outsourcing IT to India & IBM. You haven’t realized that you have lost control of your databases. IT has been reduced to a group of project managers. The high skill set of your few “true” IT people who are left is marginalized. Soon those skills will be out-of-date & the technology people must make a choice, a) stay and become totally unemployable elsewhere or b) leave now before you become unskilled to the greater world.
