This job just wasn't for me.

Territory Sales Manager (Former Employee)
Worcester, MA

ProsDecent compensation and a very flexible schedule

ConsYou 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....

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Exciting Growth... At First. Monotonous Thereafter.

    Territory Sales Manager (Current Employee)
    California City, CA

    I have been working at Altria full-time for less than a year


    Pros: - Great first job out of college, secure - Salary, Car, Health Insurance, etc.… Cons: - Monotonous - Difficult to build strong relationships with customers due to a constant push of new tobacco products, changes in retail programs, etc. - Management… Advice to Senior Management: Training should be focused on training great sales people, not… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Had potential, but wasn't great for Government Affairs internship experience

    Temporary Professional (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

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


    Pros: Great pay flexible schedules (if you're an intern) Interaction with High-level Executives Corporate/For-Profit Experience… Cons: Many people/companies/organizations outside of the tobacco industry do not like Altria so good luck getting a job with Altria on your resume. For me,… Advice to Senior Management: Some higher level management were too "hands-off" when it came to managing interns. I suggest you take a greater interest in the Temporary Professionals.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
