Lots of learning opportunities in a high performing company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Philip Morris International full-time for more than 5 years

Pros- decent salary and benefits
- progression can be quite fast as long as you are internationally mobile
- pace of change is high so lots of learning opportunities in addition to 'normal' job
- great people to work with, even at a senior level most people are approachable and have the best interests of the company at heart

Cons- low diversity - not many women in senior positions
- work life balance is not great, quite an old fashioned approach here - working from home is frowned upon, still seem to be judged on how long you sit at your desk rather than how much you contribute
- need to have a good network in order to really progress

Advice to Senior ManagementPMI needs to stop being quite so old fashioned! There is also still a high degree of progression that doesn't seem to be related to what you delivered, but rather on who you know - lots of people are very good at managing upwards, but not managing downwards. So their manager thinks they are amazing, but their employees have a tough time. Management should be aware of this.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
