No opinion of CEO

Pros

The benefit package (specifically, health and vacation) was excellent. Employees are given the opportunity to balance career and personal family life.

Cons

Very little opportunity for advancement. Management is not willing to consider new or fresh ideas. Company is financially conservative which brings down moral since there are few perks. There is absolutley no or very little opportunity for advancement and a very high turnover.

Advice to Management

Evaluate middle management's performance. Although Lorillard claims to have an "open - door" policy, suggestions fall on deaf ears. Certain areas in the country have extremely high turn over, which is an indication of low moral and poor treatment. These areas should be a red flag or indication that there are serious problems with middle management in these areas.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits are great and the pay is average versus competition, but benefits make up for a great deal of that. Company car, fuel, and maintenance are paid for by the company. Old-fashion company that keeps its eyes on being profitable more so than being number one for bragging rights. Flat out makes money and if they are making more than last year than job security is good.

    Cons

    It’s a tobacco company; lots of people want to make villains of an industry that provides billions of tax dollars to keep these overspending states afloat. Can not say one bad thing about management from the bottom to the top

    Advice to Management

    Let the guys get rid of the ties in the hot months.
