I worked at Lorillard

Pros

Basically working on your own, very important to be self-motivated, great salary, job security, company car, laptop, benefits, 5 weeks vacation time. If you're lucky enough to work with a great group of people, this is a great job.

Cons

Ladder-climbing junior management cost this company some of its best and brightest. Also need to come up with a believable lie as to what you do for a living, because lot sof people will hate you for it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Curb your young.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have not seen one Division Manager that is honest. You should put them under the microscope that you put sales representatives. You would be surprised. I am tired of them expecting sales reps to be quite as we cover for them to regional managers. Yes he worked with me... right. Sales reps only have one line of communication. So you better lie for them.

    I have been working at Lorillard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A company that cares about YOU. As an associate: your challenges, development, successes and overall being. As a person: your family, balancing career and home, there when you need them...a true "family" environment. Most importantly, Lorillard Tobacco is a highly successful, 240 year old success story that not only knows who generates that success, but is more than willing to share that success with every associate...which in turn is overwhelmingly reciprocated.

    Cons

    With any international company, there are bound to be some negatives. Lorillard Tobacco must have some, however, they would be extremely isolated and usually attended to and reviewed to insure no repetition. Associates, from field sales representatives to corporate management, are allowed a wide berth in which to operate and achieve success. However, when conflicts occur, everything is studied, researched and reviewed by peer groups and management to not only insure fairness and consistency, but to discover methods to reduce the chances of occuring again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
