    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great pay
    flexible schedules (if you're an intern)
    Interaction with High-level Executives
    Corporate/For-Profit Experience within a Fortune 100 Company
    Opportunities for professional development (for full-time salaried employees).

    Cons

    Many people/companies/organizations outside of the tobacco industry do not like Altria so good luck getting a job with Altria on your resume. For me, the culture was too professional, the hours were too long (9-6), and there were massive lay-offs (3 organizational restructurings within 4 years) and I would expect more to come in the future. Long-term employment potential and growth seemed to be limited.

    Advice to Management

    Some higher level management were too "hands-off" when it came to managing interns. I suggest you take a greater interest in the Temporary Professionals. As an intern in Government Affairs, the job responsibilities were not clear and the intern position/program was not very well structured. I had way too much time to do nothing and when it came to doing the work, I was never told the "big picture" so most of what I did made little sense.
