I have been working at Philip Morris International full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- decent salary and benefits
- progression can be quite fast as long as you are internationally mobile
- pace of change is high so lots of learning opportunities in addition to 'normal' job
- great people to work with, even at a senior level most people are approachable and have the best interests of the company at heart

Cons

- low diversity - not many women in senior positions
- work life balance is not great, quite an old fashioned approach here - working from home is frowned upon, still seem to be judged on how long you sit at your desk rather than how much you contribute
- need to have a good network in order to really progress

Advice to Management

PMI needs to stop being quite so old fashioned! There is also still a high degree of progression that doesn't seem to be related to what you delivered, but rather on who you know - lots of people are very good at managing upwards, but not managing downwards. So their manager thinks they are amazing, but their employees have a tough time. Management should be aware of this.

    I worked at Philip Morris International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy going work routine (9 - 6). Magnificently beautiful offices and training centers - Lots of international career opportunities and training. Top of the market pay.

    Cons

    Not open to new ideas or change. Challenging the status quo is seen as a "bad" thing since the company makes a lot of money already...

    Advice to Management

    Install a sense of urgency


  2. "Challenging Experience"

    Pros

    Philip Morris offers good career development, it provides challenging assignments plus it has diverse workforce which will enrich your stay in the company.

    Cons

    Working at Philip Morris means long working hours which I believe is the same with any other multinational companies.
