    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.

    Pros

    Altria is a great place that allows you to really own your development. They mainly promote from within so if you are a hard worker and want to move up you have a golden opportunity at Altria. They have a very comprehensive benefits package as well.

    Cons

    Altria is very risk adverse and puts the investor first and foremost. This is a good and a bad thing because you will most likely buy Altria stock once you view the track record but it does make for a very mild linear pay grades.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the salary compensation for the workforce as I have seen first hand that we have lost great, high caliber candidates to this very reason.

    Flexible Schedule, summer hours, great insurance, over the top benefits. The salary is great for the work you do.

    They promote managers too quickly that do not know how to manage other people. Work life balance is non existent if you want to get a promotion. Work is not rewarding or challenging.

    Learn how to manage and encourage your team. Micromanaging doesn't work.
