Pros

As a summer intern they really take you out and show you all the ins and outs of the business. They have some of the greatest people in the work place. It is one of the best places to launch a career because of all the career advancements.

Cons

The only con is that ist is a tobacco company, ultimately, and you will probably get frowned upon by a few people everyday.

Advice to Management

I think the internship was a great experience and I learned a great deal.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is okay (but not worth it).
    Benefits are great!
    Work/personal car.

    Cons

    Management is completely in the dark to the real amount of work the TSM's do daily!
    HR does not solve problems, things can become worse it an issue is reported.
    Too many product launches and last minute changes.
    No work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to the TSM without retaliation (yes, it is happening!) Less work... if you really want it all completed and done RIGHT!
