    I have been working at Philip Morris International full-time (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 ManagementAdvice

    PMI 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.
