I worked at Altria

Pros

Fast paced and dynamic place to work full of different challenges. Their compensation packages have been consistently above average. They invest lots of time and money into training their people.

Cons

They continue to throw new products and initiatives into the market hoping to maintain share of the market and help with incremental volume despite the lack of demand for the products and it is having a negative effect on small to middle sized retail businesses. In 2012 they are instituting a 400 million dollar cost cutting program which is cutting back benefits and retirement programs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on coming up with realistic initiatives for retail to help grow business with out pumping out new SKUs and promotions into the market

    Pros

    The compensation is highest among its peers. Everyone is on a first name basis and everyone is friendly. You are treated with respect.

    Cons

    The promotion process does not make the most sense. They are starting to cut benefits and have down sized recently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of the decisions are made from the very top level. There is little input from below senior management positions.

    I have been working at Altria

    Pros

    Pay is great. 3 weeks of vacation immediately, 401k matching and profit sharing. Use of company car

    Cons

    Upper management changes their minds weekly, and we do not focus on our long term goals, but instead look to keep up with the competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look around and look at the morale or the company. It is getting lower and lower with each day.
