Cons

Honestly there are no real cons, unless you want to nitpick. The organization has undergone many large scale changes in recent years. Some people struggle with the idea of working for a tobacco company, but these concerns are quickly nullified when you are exposed to the above board honest way that the organization as a whole conducts itself.

    Current Employee - Trade Marketing Account Representative in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    Compentation package including benefits is amongst the top in the FMCG industry. Company makes a concious effort to be amongst the top in terms of total compensation in comparison to other CPG companies

    Cons

    Career advancement is a great challenge. Might be very limiting for aspirational individuals who would like to grow in their career. Too many people applying for almost every position that comes up. Hard to even get an interview for a position if you are not a "lister". Management seems to base judgement more on potential than actual performance. Work life balance is definetely an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management seems to base judgement more on potential than actual performance. Could definetely improve developement of people.

    Current Employee - Sales in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    There are a lot of upward mobility if you work hard and can position yourself well with your manager. Good pay for the job. In addition compensation package overall is excellent. There is also the fact that you get a company car.

    Cons

    Work life balance still needs work as well as expectations are sometimes unrealistic. There are also a lot of language barriers that sometimes need to be dealt with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let reps make their own decisions about their territories.
