    This ship is going down hard. The sinking isn't happening as fast as the Titanic but it's happening! executive management is incompetent pushing out promotional deals and programs that don't work

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics like treating your sales people right. We are the bread and butter that keep this ship going.

    Pros

    Decent pay, company car, expense reimbursement, and annual bonus. Good sales experience and the title looks good on a resume. For the most part you are working on your own.

    Unprofessional working environment, poor opportunities for advancement, manual labor involved. Too many cliques and management plays favorites.

    Promote more fairly, give better and consistent feedback, don't play favorites.

    Pros

    Philip Morris USA is an excellent internship experience. You are not conducting mundane tasks such as paperwork or copying files, but getting hands-on experience by directly going in retail stores, working with different managers, and getting in-class instructions. It doesn't get any better than this, and the pay is great.

    Cons

    The traffic was terrible at times.

    Advice to Management

    I've worked with such great people who were open to constructive criticism in positive tones, and worked with me in areas of opportunity. No advice from me is needed.
