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 Management

Stop basing promotions solely on employee mobility

    I worked at Altria full-time (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.

    Advice to Management

    I hope they can sustain the business. A lot of great people work at Altria!

    Disapproves of CEO

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