I have been working at Altria as an intern for less than a year

Pros

- 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

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 - Unit Manager in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Altria full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The culture created by the people at the company cannot be matched anywhere else. It is a great environment of collaboration and support. For the most part anyone in sales is very friendly and always willing to help.

    Cons

    If you are flexible the sky is the limit in regards to future advancement, but it comes at a major cost. You are asked to move frequently often with little say as to where you will end up. Making money is great, but the cost is not having any friends or family around to enjoy it with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We all understand this is an era of great movement to include diversity and inclusion, but quit moving females and diverse candidates up in the organization who are not fully prepared just to meet a quota or a build a diverse atmostphere on paper. It can be very deterring when you meet a 30 year old female director and know that you may be 10 years from that role due to being white male.

    I have been working at Altria full-time for more than a 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.
