    I have been working at Altria full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people of Altria are some of the smartest and best people to work with. I think the main reason this company is so successful in such a tough environment is the people. It also feels like a start up company with all of the innovation we are going through.

    Cons

    Your manager can make or break your experience. I had one bad manager that was eventually let go from the company. My other managers have been incredible. You have to be able to handle a tumultuous environment. I thrive in it and personally believe the experience is priceless for any other sales job you may have.

    -Although I can appreciate the heavy focus on the culture, as of late our ratio of business discussions versus organization discussions have been a bit off.

    I have been working at Altria full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very rarely do you see a company where most employees have worked 10+ years. It was one of the main selling points for me, especially working in the tech industry, where turnover and job jumping is very common. The benefits are unparalleled, although the base 401k matching could be better and I think it should take effect your first day instead of the current rate (3% matching after 6 months of employment). But there is a student loan repayment plan, schooling FULLY paid for if you want to get your Master's/PhD, deferred profit sharing program which can invest 13%-27% of your base salary in retirement options, etc.

    Cons

    A LOT of the technologies are outdated, so there is a huge gap between the current trend of the tech industry and Altria. But Altria is full aware and making efforts in diminish the gap (thus the reason why I'm here) :)
