Not a good place to be

Take your pick, I've seen it from all sides (Former Employee)
Richmond, VA

I worked at Altria

ProsHigh salary, but there is a reason for that
Good benefits but only good if vested (and good luck with that)
Good peers and some nice people

ConsTerrible leadership
Very political
Old boys club where leadership is permitted to do anything they want to get ahead
Leaders manage upwards and despite reports to HR for years, are allowed to "break" and blame underlings.
Values are a joke and are only used to hurt you in reviews, but living by their values is not rewarded and actually prevents you from moving up.
HR is only there to protect management.
Management is never reprimanded, but underlings are routinely let go.
Lowest morale of any place I have ever worked.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe system is broken and needs a total overhaul and reports to HR about management should be taken seriously.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
