I worked at Altria as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Altria gives a great amount of autonomy to all of its employees. Great training and development program. Great benefits and compensation.

Cons

Working in a very controversial industry (tobacco). Being in sales, you must be flexible in satisfying both your boss and your customers.

    I worked at Altria full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Competitive Salary and bonus. Company vehicle. Excellent benefits and 401k plan.

    Cons

    Your selling tobacco products. It's not for people who have an issue with socially maligned markets.

    I worked at Altria as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent compensation and a very flexible schedule

    Cons

    You are working in a dying industry. Just how fast that industry declines is going to be based on a number of factors such as FDA regulation, warning labels, etc, but would you really want to start a career with a company that is i a losing industry? They just had a "restructuring a few months before I started and there was already talk of another restructuring in the not so distant future....
