    Former Employee - Sales and Marketing

    I worked at Philip Morris USA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand a mentor program to more employees within sales
