    Pros

    Company has a great DPS plan and benefits, and CEO is authentic.

    Cons

    Leadership is out of touch and treat employees as widgets. Toxic work environment but benefits keep most of us working. Not a lot of room for growth and actual career development. The last 5 years have changed for the worst.

    More of a cult than a company

    Jul 24, 2022 - Account Manager

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Can be an okay place to get your career started. Average pay, average benefits. Low accountability

    Cons

    After grossly overpaying for 1/3 of JUUL, this company went off the deep end. First, the new management team gutted 20% of the organization. Then in 2020, Altria became very "woke" and extremely toxic. A ton of talent left (and the good ones continue to leave), and were replaced internally by less-experienced professionals since Altria cannot recruit good outside talent. Those who get promoted are the ones who will parrot company messages, not the ones who deliver business results or foster an actual culture of inclusion. The people who won't quit are directors and above, who generally lack the skills to perform in role but remain there because of office politics and not based on business results they deliver. What remained when I left was a cult-like attitude towards Inclusion and Diversity, general confusion on company direction, and a toxic culture. Robust discussions on business performance are rare. You aren't really held accountable to anything. Leaving was the best decision I made during my stint at this company.

    Don’t stay long

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Free car and flexible schedule. Good starter job.

    Cons

    You spend all day in disgusting convenience stores. Sometimes you’re in dangerous locations or dealing with mentally unstable store owners and you’re heckled by customers. There are so many different initiatives thrown at you that you rarely feel any success. There is very little opportunity to advance. You feel horrible about yourself for what you do (hook people on nicotine) and your peers/family also feel bad for you. There are so many other jobs out there, yet people stay because they’re brainwashed into thinking it’s the world’s greatest retirement plan. It’s not. It’s a job, not a career. Almost embarrassed to keep it on my resume.
