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 Management

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 Management

    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

    You can take vacation whenever you want. Good place to start if you are right out of school. The company is desperate for young people to engage young smokers face-to-face. The company will embrace you and promote you quickly.

    Cons

    VERY political. I could go on all day here. They treat everybody, employees, customer, consumers, like crap. They think by saying something it makes it so (we are ethical, passionate.....etc) They are anything but. Senior management has no clue. I was with them for 21 years, and the company lost share every year. Like playing for the Cubs- lose EVERY time. The company is hemorraging cash, and will probably soon be bought by a competitor.

    Advice to Management

    This company is beyond repair.
