Current Employee - Intern in Richmond, VA

I have been working at Altria as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

- Real life examples in the field you want to enter
- Great explanation of what you could expect if you signed on full time
- Outstanding compensation for the work performed
- Many different resources to find information about the company
- Training is excellent and it shows that they heavily invest in their employee's

Cons

- Difficult explaining why you would work for a company that sells a harmful product
- Retirement plan change is a little worrying

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Optional meetings before the internship begins to get a broader scope of the company would be helpful
- Would have enjoyed seeing more of the plants outside of Richmond

    Current Employee - Territory Sales Manager

    I have been working at Altria full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Wonderful pay and benefits (car, medical, vision, gas & mileage). Lots of autonomy. You make your own schedule and don't have to worry about someone checking in on you or looking over your shoulder. Freedom to make your own schedule.

    Cons

    As a TSM I dealt with rude, racist, and sexist retailers. My boss was young and inexperienced and this really prevented me from growing with the company. If you get a bad Unit Manager, you're done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardize the training across every unit.
