    Pros

    I worked in the Leaf department where you are hired seasonally. The tobacco buyers were always positive and treated their customers more than fair. Awesome company!

    No cons in my opinion.

    A conservative company, dealing with monopoly in China. And the future of this industry is not so good as other industries.

    Keep focusing in China and its management team, they have created good value for the company, we hope the company grows well.

    I have been working at Alliance One full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are able to gain insightful information about the tobacco industry and how to grow.

    Cons

    Many of the lower level positions are seasonal, and layoffs are unpredictable.

    More young, innovative employees should be considered for managerial positions.

  8. "A lot of ups and Downs."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Some of the people I worked with are very nice and helpful. I loved the job I did.

    Cons

    Some of the people I worked for really need to retire. No clue as to what it takes to get the job done. I understand you need to keep your customers satisfied, but you really need to back your employees.

    Advice to Management

    There are some management that seems to do anything to make their own employees jobs more difficult and really need to look out for your own employees needs on the job.

    Cons

    Not much room to grow specially if you are female. The internal job posting are not clear cut. Promotions are based on politics not personal accomplishments, Raises are minimal and do not keep with inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid group think!
