Pros

As a summer intern they really take you out and show you all the ins and outs of the business. They have some of the greatest people in the work place. It is one of the best places to launch a career because of all the career advancements.

Cons

The only con is that ist is a tobacco company, ultimately, and you will probably get frowned upon by a few people everyday.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think the internship was a great experience and I learned a great deal.

    Pros

    The pay is okay (but not worth it).
    Benefits are great!
    Work/personal car.

    Cons

    Management is completely in the dark to the real amount of work the TSM's do daily!
    HR does not solve problems, things can become worse it an issue is reported.
    Too many product launches and last minute changes.
    No work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to the TSM without retaliation (yes, it is happening!) Less work... if you really want it all completed and done RIGHT!

    Pros

    This is probably the best internship you could ask for. The pay is awesome. They even give you a stipend if you need to relocate AND give you advance pay the first week you work. The work is challenging but at least you are not getting coffee and filing papers. You get your own cubicle and lap top and the company pays for all the interns to go to all these fun events like wine tasting and go kart racing. You also get a free pack a cigarettes a day whether you smoke or not.

    Cons

    The brand interns are treated like royalty compared to the other interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more feedback to your interns. More than just a half way point and end point review.
