Pros

The company offers strong leadership development, comprehensive hands on training. There is ample opportunity for career advancement for those willing to work hard and demonstrate success in established leadership dimensions. Many perks - company car, gas paid, flexible work schedules, ownership of territory.

Cons

The salary paid in urban areas is not ideal for cost of living. Extra effort could be given to better adjust for high cost areas. The company also hangs on to unproductive members of the workforce longer than necessary - quick elimination of the those unwilling to demonstrate potential would better serve the entire team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to focus on the dimensions of a good leader and bringing those characteristics to the workforce with new employment.

    Pros

    Creative work environment. Very casual and supportive of work family balance. Good salary and benefits packages. Not many places that will pay for 100% of medical and dental, but I guess they should as it is a smoking environment.

    Cons

    This company is filled with politics. Many employees are mediocre at their jobs and very petty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward true performers and truly live the vision. You already do 80% of the time kick it up a notch and take it to 100%.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for advancement, and you own your geographic territory. The benefits are pretty good. There is a flexible scedule which leaves time for a good work life balance.

    Cons

    The constant change in direction from upper management. We are defiantly not compensated for the amount of work we do. We are the lowest paid of all the major tobacco companies, with the exception of commonwealth. The industry as a whole is in a steady decline so I really don't know if there is a long term future in the tobacco industry.
