Philip Morris International – Why Work For Us?

Seize the future

Today’s tobacco industry is in transition. It’s moving fast. Are you someone who loves a challenge? A self-starter who feeds off the buzz? Then working with the world’s leading tobacco company that is driving change presents an exciting opportunity.

So much is changing. In the last few years, Philip Morris International has hired over 430 world class scientists and engineers and invested more than 2 bio USD to develop and scientifically assess a range of innovative products with the potential to reduce individual risk and population harm compared to continued smoking cigarettes. Those products, which we refer to as Reduced-Risk Products (RRPs) can answer demand from adult smokers who look for reduced-risk alternatives to cigarettes while helping to address public health concerns. Do you want to help lead a global revolution? This is your chance.

New technologies will only accelerate the rate of change. The future is there for the making. Join us to see what part we can play.

Good reasons to stay

Our people tell us they want to be challenged and we love it. It’s a win-win situation. We invest in you to invest in ourselves. We get great talent. You get to go where you want to be. 

But once we’ve got you, we don’t want to let you go. Why would we? That’s where cross-functional moves come in, designed to help people learn new skills, and bring fresh thinking to a role. Last year, there were 1,000 cross-functional moves. On average, our people change jobs every 1-3 years. That means the opportunities for adventure here are endless.

But don’t take our word for it… Santiago lives and breathes change. He can’t stop moving, and we’d never stop him.

It’s in your hands

Whatever your career stage, we believe that the more you learn, the more you progress. We love people who take the initiative and you’ll be rewarded every step of the way. You can see the world and find amazing people who share your passions and commitment.

We offer a journey of discovery.  It's learning on the job at a whole new level. Everybody at PMI has a voice – and we want to hear yours.

So, it’s over to you. Show yourself just how good you are. Tanja has. Her story proves that great things come to those who want to take on challenges and learn as they grow. When she arrived at PMI, her key ambition was to avoid boredom at work. We didn’t let her down.

Time to open that door

You won’t find the verb ‘Unlimit’ in any dictionary. But then we don’t do careers by the book. #UnlimitYourself is a unique challenge. It captures the essence of learning and self-discovery – and the power of the individual – that sits at the heart of our success. 

We encourage our people to think like entrepreneurs. We want you to look deep inside yourself - and to teammates - for inspiration. Would you stand by your ability when things get tough? We would.

If you choose the passenger seat, you’ll never #UnlimitYourself@PMI. But for those prepared to grab the wheel, the opportunities are #unlimited.  

Meet Ibrahim. He joined us from a start-up, and has thrived as an entrepreneur with us. Find out what #UnlimitYourself means to him.

Hit the ground running

Why choose an ordinary internship, when you can have an extraordinary one? Our #INKOMPASS program presents a unique chance to embark on a journey of self-discovery, with the opportunity of earning a job if you successfully meet our criteria. All before you graduate.

There’s no better way to learn than with real work, real challenges and real impact on real projects. You’ll work in an international environment and expand your horizons, networking with people from every background.

It really is your journey. With personalized development and coaching, you’ll find ways to achieve things you never thought possible. Are you curious, adventurous and open-minded? Then show us who you are and what you think.

That’s exactly what Kris did in Thailand. He totally changed his perspective on work. And his thinking was implemented into actual projects - a thrill he never expected to feel as an intern.

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (New York, NY).


    Based in 3 interviews, first with external staffing partner of PMI and after with different stakeholders that I would report to. After approval on that stage I was subjected to one final Assessment Centre (it was mix between internal and external interlocutors).
