    Pros

    Company believes strongly in training the employees, which comes in handy considering the amount of work you will be doing. Overall strong company.

    Cons

    Besides the obvious reality of this being a company that's a part of a declining market, which means constant reductions in jobs, they maintain the energy needed to come to work each day.

    Advice to Management

    No true advice to management that's different than any other corporate job. The management I have had over time does their best to advance and grow their team.

    I have been working at Altria full-time (More than a year)

    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.
