    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.

    I worked at Altria full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great salary to start, especially for a beginner sales role directly out of college. Company car, excellent contribution by company to employee retirement fund.

    Cons

    Very little work/life balance. Promotion process is extremely long and drawn out, taking away from your day to day responsibilities of your daily role. Upper management says one thing and does another, giving conflicting direction to their reports. Every time you get a promotion, you have to move to another market, and rarely a place you actually want to live. They work you extremely long hours to get from one place you don't want to live so you get promoted and move to yet another place that you don't want to live.

    Advice to Management

    Change the promotion process so employees are promoted based on their job performance, not just the management favorites and those that can build the best power point presentation.
