    Pros

    Senior management is top notch. You will gain invaluable experience as this company has the best business practices. Benefits are hard to beat.

    Cons

    As with every big firm, growth is slow and there is bureaucracy. You also need to look after your own career if you desire to move within departments. HR will “try” to help but ultimately you need to find a mentor.

    I worked at Altria

    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 ManagementAdvice

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