    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible work hours, promotional/growth opportunities, variety of career paths.

    Cons

    As a fairly young employee, every department I have been in consists of only people double my age. The people are nice and helpful, but it is nice to have peers in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote the various opportunities throughout the company for employees to expand their knowledge and capabilities. Also, be more willing to allow people to work from home and help to get rid of the negative stigma around it.

    I have been working at Altria full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great salary
    Good work environment
    Talented and hard working people
    Recent, more intentional attempts at work-life flexibility
    Great amenities - cafeteria, on-site gym, company store, free cigarettes/smokeless products, HQ hair and nail salon

    Cons

    Periodic downsizing - every 2-3 years
    Very high expectations
    Patriarchal - few women or minorities in executive positions
    Somewhat of "old boys club" environment
    Some talk, but less walk
    Has become a rather flat organization, fewer opportunities for advancement... unless you are younger, newer to organization, and it helps to be good looking

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees
    Get out of your offices
    Don't dismiss your older workforce - they know stuff
