    Outstanding Company

    Electronic Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
    Concord, NC

    ProsAs a salaried employee we had great pay and benefits. We were allowed to function with a great deal of autonomy and never were micro-managed.

    ConsSince it is such a big company, you some times feel as you are merely a number.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Enjoyed working for this company

    Production Worker/Leader (Former Employee)
    Concord, NC

    ProsExcellent pay and benefits. I received leadership training along with safety training, which I use to this day. I am looking for another job where the benefits can be as outstanding as they were from this company.

    ConsWorking in a tobacco environment can be annoying.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI had a lot of off time once I worked my way up to it. Week of the 4th and Christmas week were automatic with pay even if you were not employed for a long length of time. Time off was great and benefits were too. Compensation package such as severance pay was great after the company closed.

    20+ years working with PM USA

    Sales and Marketing (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent training
    Promotional opportunities with determination, dedication and hard work
    Top salary and great benefits

    Personally, I started out as a sales representative and was promoted 7 different times. I moved to 5 different states with my final destination being at corporate headquarters in marketing. When I was hired, very few women were in management positions with even fewer women willing to relocate their family. Times have changed and opportunity is up to the individual's passion and hard work. Raises are mainly based on merit and PM has a great 401K.

    ConsCorporate politics - you do work for a large corporation!
    Work / Life balance can get wacky if you let it

    Advice to Senior ManagementExpand a mentor program to more employees within sales

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
