Disapproves of CEO

Pros

High 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

Cons

Terrible 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 Management

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

  1. Great Benefits, but act as a sales rep for 3 operating companies-no work life balance

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits, company car, 401K is excellent

    Cons

    In order for advancement you have to relocate out of state. The current TSM position is managing products from 3 operating companies and is too much work. There is no work life balance at this company. You bring your work home everyday and you carry a lot of POS, boxes, etc in your garage and car. Not a company that is "mom" friendly.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a major infrastructure change at the TSM level. The job is unmanageable.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Challenging industry to work and learn in - Higher compensation (to persuade people to work in Tobacco) and good benefits such as 15% deferred profit sharing, medical and tuition coverage

    Cons

    - "Deep Southern" mentality and very 1950's culture - Dying industry (growth is with Philip Morris International, not Altria) - Lack of innovation (decades of a one product industry and dependency on Marlboro) - Very political and non-collaborative work environment - Aging workforce with too many SVPs and middle-managers (upside-down triangle)
