    Pros

    Pay is good - especially for New Mexico. Benefits, so far, are fairly good.

    Cons

    Favoritism is just awful here. Politics are horrific. Morale is at all time low. Employees are not treated with respect or fairly unless you're one of the favored ones. It's not what or how much you know but WHO you know in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should think about Undercover Boss and what you might learn. Treat ALL employees with respect and value them and their work. Give a second chance for the package.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, pretty good people to work with. Lots of politics though, and many difficult individuals work there.

    Cons

    Continued uncertainty about ongoing employment in the tobacco industry. So many layoffs over the years have people continually watching their backs.

    Advice to Management

    Watch those who are always playing the politics game. They might be treating management one way, but they're treating their peers differently.
