    Former Employee - Territory Manager in Saginaw, MI
    Former Employee - Territory Manager in Saginaw, MI

    I worked at Commonwealth-Altadis full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    insurance, 401k with match,vacatios and pay check

    Cons

    no life outside of job. The top has no idea what they are doing. Its the Good Old Boy Club, Just like our Government. Always the reps fault for every thing that goes wrong. If you don't play the game you are considered "negative". Pay check not worth the bad health.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop listening to all your upper mamagement. Go out and see for yourself what is going on. You could learn alot, things are not as you are told. Get rid of most of upper management, you do not need so many chiefs. Start trusting the Reps who are the face of the company.

    Former Employee - Territory Manager in Omaha, NE
    Former Employee - Territory Manager in Omaha, NE

    I worked at Commonwealth-Altadis full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company car, full paid benefits, 6% company match 401k

    Cons

    Everything else. Micromanaged, sales goals change by the week, impossible to make your numbers with constant change, bonus program is laughable, tracked how long it takes you to make calls, drive between calls, and expected to make 10-12 calls per day all while selling new(always changing) programs, POS and account management. They expect the moon, and don't give you any leeway on anything. I am so glad to be done here. I expect this company to be bought out very VERY soon seeing as how the Brits don't want it anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some realistic expectations for a completely different market than Europe. Yes, brand awareness is great, but signage needs to be simple and to the point. Also, you have out priced all of your brands in the categories they need to be in. Advice? I think its too late for any advice. If you work here, get busy finding another job, and fast. Ship is sinking..
