    I worked at Altria as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people there are dedicated to your internship and want you to be successful. They treat you well during the summer.

    Cons

    There were many difference and preferences among the interns. Some were lucky with there mentors while others were not.

    Advice to Management

    Have a standardize internship program where all interns have similar experiences, not controlled by who their mentor is.

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

    Pros

    Independent work environment. Excellent ongoing development programs. Good compensation and benefits package. Top notch 401k and retirement benefits. Company car and paid expenses. Ability to make impact in local markets. Bottom up planning allows TSMs to develop their own business plans to improve results.

    Cons

    TSMs often operate in silos outside of corporate environment. Tight advancement opportunities. Little room to impact annual bonus on a territory level. Structured corporate environment. While challenging the "status quo" is encouraged, changes are slow to be implemented in real time.

    Advice to Management

    Seek more one on one feedback from employees. More corporate level training available to TSMs to attend workshops and instructor led classes. Focus more on logical execution of initiatives which fit into call cycle plans.
