    Pros

    This once was a good place to work. Good pay, great benefits, with company car, 401K and retirement package. Can set your own goals.

    Cons

    This company was sold to RJR which in turn sold the remaining company to Imperial Toacco Group out of the UK.

    Advice to Management

    I get the feeling that none of us are going to be secure with the new company. I guess it's time to 're-evaluate.

    Pros

    Pay co car benefits and co workers will help each other out.

    Cons

    To the EX lorillard employees ,just because you have kept your positions for now don't make the mistake that you will be at ITG long term.In 8 years I ve seen the management team and salesforce change 4 different times as they will have you re apply your position and this is the way they cut costs. Some states have 4 managers for 16 reps That won't float for long as in time they will look to cut costs and they will cut it down to 2 managers and that will happen country wide.They don't know how to run the US business and have destroyed brands and will wreck these brands as well.Make sure you all update your resume.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck to you that you are getting rid Of a selling-salesforce.Good luck leveraging contracts with no big gun to leverage .

    I have been working at Lorillard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Benifits, company car, salary. A little behind the times with technology.

    Cons

    Merger! M Kessler sold us out. That was his mission from the beginning. We are still in the dark about what is going on with the transition. No communication! Anxiety falls over the entire Lorillard staff. Weather you are a "placed" or "displaced" employee you are still job scared. No one really knows what will happen within one year. Still waiting to see what happens. I believe in Karma. M. Kessler watch out!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Speechless

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people I've ever worked with. Most people have been with this company for many years and are dedicated to ensuring it's success.

    Cons

    Very limited road for professional growth opportunities. Mired in the "good ole boy" mentality. Lacks solid leadership from upper management and middle management perspective.

    I worked at Lorillard (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My 9 years before MUrray Kessler came. Lorillard was stable and growing at a tremendous rate.Great benefits!

    Cons

    The last 15 months were hell. The company was sold by CEO. Rjr can't market products worth a damn so they have to buy their competition.

    Advice to Management

    Let's all ship our pathetic gift from Murray back to his house. I guess he thinks we all need a drink after the last 15 months

    I worked at Lorillard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent training and support. The manager I worked for went above and beyond to assist his sales force. Communication was always very good.

    Cons

    The days could get long and the territory was very big. I would spend several hours every weekend getting everything ready for the next week.

    Pros

    Some of the best people. The company was well run. They had a great product and marketing. Really well run and efficient company.

    Cons

    CEO sold out company to Reynolds, lied about it from the day he got there. Poor morale waiting to find out what Imperial is going to do. They are keeping most of the employees but not giving them any options if they don't want to stay on with imperial.

    Advice to Management

    Offer buyout to employees.

    Pros

    If you have even the slightest bit of common sense and are not drooling all over yourself or in a wheelchair you will be the smartest person in the room

    Cons

    Poorly ran company, stuck in the past, company not open to change, all management is out of touch, they say best sales force in the industry more like the oldest...

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue-everyone knows the company is a joke and it's a miracle it wasn't sold off long before this...
