    I have been working at Altria full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay, company car that’s updated every 3 years, reimbursement for phone/internet. Great out of college gig. Very structured on-boarding process.

    Cons

    Company culture, micromanagement, lack of transparency, promotional opportunities for employees that weren’t former interns or apart of the college recruitment program.

    Advice to Management

    The company has an identity crisis. The field sales force is just glorified merchandisers now. Stop pretending to be innovative and diverse, you aren’t. Hire more based on experience and skill instead of just fast tracking the new hires!

    Depending on where you live there are limited opportunities for advancement. Also wide variance in responsibilities/culture depending on your director.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers encourage work-life balance. If you have to work from home to care for a sick kick or leave early to run an errand, or whatever you need to do for your personal life- it's no big deal so long as your on top of your responsibilities and contributing what you need to. Haven't been there long enough to see how growth and advancement works, but I know a lot of people stay in their positions simply because they enjoy them and the pay is good. Company has good benefits, and plenty of additional perks.

    Cons

    Only downside to my job that I can foresee at the moment is that while the pay is above industry standards, I feel that I maintain more responsibilities than other roles that earn a higher salary.
