    I worked at Altria full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company car. Benefits. Flexibilty to manage yourself. Most of the people are above board and respectable. Meetings are usually well done and informative.

    Cons

    Poor management. Appraisal syatem is unfair. By design it is too subjective and therefore if you are liked you can look great on paper even if you are a poor performer. Too much backstabbing and people focused on their own agenda at your expense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people fairly and objectively based on facts not perception.

    Former Employee - Territory Sales Manager in Kansas City, MO

    I worked at Altria full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent Pay and Benefits
    My managers were very understanding of issues as they arose
    Autonomous, only see bosses 2-3 times per month

    Cons

    Lots of "Wheel Spinning". Upper management will have you concentrate very hard on an initiative only to have it be undone the next cycle. The amount of products that get forced on the customer makes it hard to maintain good customer relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down the product pipeline.
