    I have been working at Altria full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary, Company Car, Not a boring 9-5

    Cons

    Everything else - Promotions are completely a joke, Management are all former interns only 2 years removed from college, experienced hires are pretty much ignored. TSM role has become nothing more than a merchandising position if you aren't a fast track candidate. Work life balance no longer exists either with the increase in micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking only to interns as "advancement candidates" and be more transparent in the promotion process. Local managers also are very inexperienced and often only know how to micromanage but add little to no value in actual development.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. I worked from home and had lots of autonomy. The company feeds well and hosts meetings in very nice hotels. Work from home.

    Cons

    Tobacco kills. My manager was unprofessional

    Pros

    Challenging, fairly compensated. Excellent retirement

    Cons

    Politics of a big company, fairly standardized promotion track without much regard to accomplishment or effort


  5. "Lawyer"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great compensation, sophisticated company, complex issues and challenges every day.

    Cons

    Old boy network. Politics are crazy and ruthless the higher you get in the organization. If you don’t have a powerful sponsor above you—then advancement is hopeless.

    Advice to Management

    Value the different expertise of your employees and truly embrace diversity and inclusion instead of surrounding yourself with “yes men” who look different.

    I worked at Altria full-time

    Pros

    Politically savvy, lots of resources, free gym and cigarettes

    Cons

    Altria terminates employees for speaking up and reporting harassment. They also discriminate against older employees.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct company wide anti-discrimination training, like Starbucks so you and your employees know how to walk your own D&I talk and act with Integrity, Respect and Trust.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, company car (Chevy Traverse)

    Cons

    Biggest con, in my opinion, was working for a tobacco company. I hated telling people what I did.

    I worked at Altria full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, car, 401k, and great co-workers.

    Cons

    Very poor underhanded, back stabbing, discriminatory managers. If you are a chosen favorite you are fine, otherwise, they will do every under-handed thing in the book to use against you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop ignoring the bad behavior of many managers that are mis-treating good employees, ensuring that they quit.

    Pros

    Majority of people are great

    Cons
