No opinion of CEO

Pros

Pay & Benefits are exceptional
Career Development opportunities are plentiful
Office/ammenities are really nice
employees/co-workers and managers are very capable - above average
Integrity is important - very different than the industry is portrayed in the media

Cons

Tobacco Industry is tough to work in (competitive and unfairly taxed and portrayed in the public)
Compliance - Controls are over-the top
lots of process and procedure and rules - not a place that fosters creativity
Top level of leaders are not that impressive
Expected to "execute flawlessly", mistakes not tolerated

Advice to Management

Don't make decisions that people below you could and should be making.
Don't expect creativity and speed - in a process dependent, complex, risk intolerant environment
