    I have been working at Altria full-time

    Pros

    Great People, Good DPS, financially disciplined company.

    Cons

    Advancement is tough without ability to relocate. Lots of uncertainty in the tobacco industry with all the regulations and public view towards smoking.

    I worked at Altria full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fairly good benefits and breaks.

    Cons

    Everything revolves around shareholder dividend checks. They will close plants and relocate, not because plant isn't profitable but to give bigger dividend check. So employees mean nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Care about workers more.

    Pros

    Great company. Amazing benefits and a caring/engaging working environment.

    Cons

    You're selling tobacco and tobacco products. If it doesn't sit well with you morally, you will eventually be over the role The company has a way of making one believe what they're doing is moral and right.

    I worked at Altria full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great way to start your career with good pay and great benefits. Great people to work with and helps you become a professional.

    Cons

    Declining industry so I cannot recommend for someone who wants a career. Not a progressive company so if you are open-minded you will feel out of place. Walking through the front door you feel like you've been transported to the late 1970's in a bad way. Horrible cafeteria food. Worse of all...SMALL AREA TO GROW WITHIN THE COMPANY.

    I have been working at Altria full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Make your own schedule, autonomy, great benefits

    Cons

    If you don't fit the mold, you wont be able to break through...you have to be a "yes man" to rise in the ranks-the "yes man" environment creates unneeded stress and work on the sales force which in turn costs the company a ton of money. I do not see the sales force being as big as they are in 10 years, you are going to see more downsizing even though the CEO says the sales force is AFDC most competitive advantage.

    Advice to Management

    Stop blowing smoke and get back to the basics....at the end of the day we are a tobacco company, period. The social issues that you all are focus on isn't growing business and is distracting from what we need to do. You focusing on 10% of the company while the other 90% roll our eyes and think "you are really paying me to fly somewhere and have a meeting about social issues vs new ways to sell".

    I worked at Altria full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits: company car, yearly raise, 401k match up to 3% with a 10% DPS and fully vested after day one, good health insurance, 3 weeks vacation starting out.

    Cons

    Poor management and company organization. Altria isn’t keeping up with the times and the culture of the company worsens every year. They are on a pendulum; one year they are focused on the business and then the next the org. They cannot focus on both at the same time. Managing four operating companies is too much work because the companies do not communicate with each other. You will do something one month and then dismantle it the next.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so afraid of change.
