Learn to work together; stop throwing each other under the bus. Remember ownership? Practice what you preach, guys.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Altria full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, profit-sharing, company vehicle

    Cons

    High pressure with little control of actual results. Management ran things like a glee club. Performance is based on how much of a cheerleader and passion you show for all the new "exciting" programs. I felt like I was part of a junior-high school pep club where energy and excitement was more important than results. Objectives are completely arbitrary.

    I have been working at Altria full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Complex business environment to compete within
    - Opportunity to create solutions to challenging business problems
    - Management is responsive to work/life balance issues
    - Earn respect and autonomy in your position

    Cons

    - Promote people too fast. People often are more focused on getting to the next position instead of doing a good job in their current position
    - Competition is fierce and can be cut-throat
    - Declining industry and a feeling of looming 'cuts'
    - Big difference in the developmental opportunities provided to 'Advancement' candidates vs. everyone else

    Advice to Management

    Less emphasis on bucketing people into 'advancement' vs 'not advancement'. This constant differentiation is causing a split within the organization that causes a lack of collaboration on business initiatives.
