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

Pros

Flexibility
Responsibility large for a summer internship
Great program for those looking to demonstrate initiative

Cons

Expect you to move
Can get repetitive once you understand structure
Pay isn't as competitive as I would expect it to be.

Advice to Management

I really like the way Altria planned its internship and how it treated the interns. One thing that was very frustrating was in our mentors and the leadership not understanding that the amount of resources provided by a mentor vary widely. Another intern was given tons of data and tools for digging in through it, along with long work days for creating a Gameplan. Obviously they're going to do better than I am given that. Didn't really matter overall as I thought my summers were very successful, and I ended up making them a great deal of money.
