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

    Pros

    You have autonomy in the role (if you actually do your job). The role is what you make of it. It can be a very executional job if you let it but there are so many opportunities to use your strategic skill sets to solve business and organizational challenges. To be successful here, you have to be willing to work hard. You have to be a self-starter, problem-solver who can manage multiple things at once.

    Wonderful benefits, company vehicle with gas card, 100% MBA tuition reimbursement, cell phone and home internet reimbursement, 401k with matching and annual drop, great resources for families including extended maternity leave, paternity leave, and adoption assistance. Great holiday and vacation plan. Employee wine store with 50% discount. Strong company with a focus on profitability and shareholder return. If you have a long career here and invest well into your 401k, you'll be able to play hard in life!

    Cons

    To be promoted, you have to be open to relocation, as most sales jobs do require. Positive point is the relocation assistance provided really helps make the move worth it!

    There are always a lot of initiatives. It's a fast moving company. Can be hard to keep up.

    Convenience Store retail can be a less than desirable environment and this is where you'll spend majority of your time.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your top performers better so they have more incentive for their efforts. Currently, underperforming peers who barely do the bare minimum receive a very similar rating or pay increase as top performers. This can be frustrating. The merit increase program needs to be reworked because of this. Inconsistent standards across the org. Some managers coach and manage and others are completely blind to the performance levels of their people.

    Don't reduce your benefits or perks!

    Pros

    Great training, Retirement Plan, Benefits, and work/life balance

    Cons

    Lots of work on your own with little time seeing coworkers, if you don't stop work yourself you can work nonstop through the night.

    Advice to Management

    Make more consistent training across the regions so everyone gets similar intensive training and is better prepared for the job.

    I worked at Altria full-time

    Pros

    Compensation, fringe benefits, and work life balance are top notch, unbeatable. You could spend an entire career at the bottom of this company and still retire in great financial shape.

    Cons

    Difficult job, on the road all day, angry customers. Some managers can be complacent or only interested in getting promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency; units within the same section operate very differently. More supervision and involvement in day to day operations from unit and district managers.
