Current Employee - Territory Sales Manager in Wichita, KS
Current Employee - Territory Sales Manager in Wichita, KS

I have been working at Altria full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Industry leading brands, excellent training, generous benefits package, lots of flexibility and autonomy in position, good work-life balance

Cons

Lower salary & bonus than similar positions at similar companies, infrastructure for promotion and advancement is based exclusively on candidate mobility resulting in nearly all middle management being very young and relatively inexperienced, overall corporate strategy is clearly focused entirely on stock price and short term Wall Street gains versus long term brand building.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop basing promotions solely on employee mobility

    I worked at Altria as an intern (less than an 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.
