"Life time employment", right up until they let you go.

Territory Sales Manager (Current Employee) Boston, MA

ProsGood pay and benefits. At one time, they cared about, and they fully invested in your development.

ConsHighly stigmatized product. Telling friends and relatives that you sell cigarettes. This is a very mature industry. Highly regulated and highly taxed products. Taxation, which will never go away and is a major threat to the industry. You have to be willing to relocate any where in the U.S. and at any time if you want to get promoted. Random Re-deployment of Territories.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease don't tell people its "life time employment".

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

There is a considerable amount of "busy" type work and individuals… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
