I have been working at Altria as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

- Real life examples in the field you want to enter
- Great explanation of what you could expect if you signed on full time
- Outstanding compensation for the work performed
- Many different resources to find information about the company
- Training is excellent and it shows that they heavily invest in their employee's

Cons

- Difficult explaining why you would work for a company that sells a harmful product
- Retirement plan change is a little worrying

Advice to Management

- Optional meetings before the internship begins to get a broader scope of the company would be helpful
- Would have enjoyed seeing more of the plants outside of Richmond

    I worked at Altria full-time

    Pros

    They care about their employees. You are given a lot of freedom. Very stable company, thus zero worry about job security. Opportunities to advance career. Amazing benefits. You are given 2 weeks of vacation within your first year. Retirement is unmatched from any other company. Training program is unmatched as well.

    Cons

    They rarely ever, maybe never, approve move transfer request.
    Some lower management seems to be more concerned about advancing their career vs being concerned about their current position.

    I have been working at Altria full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful pay and benefits (car, medical, vision, gas & mileage). Lots of autonomy. You make your own schedule and don't have to worry about someone checking in on you or looking over your shoulder. Freedom to make your own schedule.

    Cons

    As a TSM I dealt with rude, racist, and sexist retailers. My boss was young and inexperienced and this really prevented me from growing with the company. If you get a bad Unit Manager, you're done.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize the training across every unit.
