    Approves of CEO

    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

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits
    Richmond, VA lifestyle is great for families

    Cons

    Little to no advancement potential, regardless of performance, unless you are one of the chosen ones - usually young, extroverted white males who think they can do anything even when they can't. Women, minorities and older workers are greatly overlooked and taken for granted.

    Advice to Management

    Please walk your talk. Your words focus on diversity, inclusion and innovation but you are not taking action to advance women and minorities or those who think differently. Senior management is very much in conflict avoidance mode both on external issues and internal, organizational ones too. Under these conditions, it will be a long road before we become what we say we want to be. I hope time doesn't run out on us because we are so slow to change and so unwilling to confront those in the organization who are poor managers or play favorites (including a number of executives) about the poor morale they are creating.
