Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The money and benifits are very good. There are some fine people to work with.

Cons

A lot of people are doing as little as possible but complain about everything. No direction from management but they expect everyone to just do ther job. It isn't going to happen that way but there is no one to tell that to. If you mention anything at all then they tell you that your being to negative.

They move the managers around and the ones that use to know ther jobs and the processes are gone to be replace by someone who knows nothing of the job or their function but is expected to evaluate you in your job perfomance when he doesn't even know what you are doing.

Advice to Management

Leave managers in their jobs long enough for them to learn the process and function. Quit moving people around so much. If they give the managers a raise then you should give the hourly workers one to; otherwise you will be creating a lot of resentment and low morale.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    company car, decent salary, lots of freedom, pretty good benefits, work from home, work independently, run your territory the way you want

    Cons

    You have to be comfortable working for a tobacco company, your car is filled to the roof with signs, pos material, and junk. Constantly changing enviornment.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to one strategy and don't constantly change your mind about things. Keep the prices the same for more than 30 days.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great flexibility, company car, Pays for phone and internet bills, company credit card, Salary is pretty decent, co workers are prett friendly

    Cons

    no 8 to 5 job, must continuously check emails and be willing to burn the midnight oil to get things done, Senior management is confused on what they want to do especially since FDA regulation is looming, no real direction and you always get this "sneaky old tobacco tricks" when working for them . Too many brands and the tobacco industry is declining every year. Lots of regulation coming, speculation of downsizing to come in the future

    Advice to Management

    Stick to one plan of action, care about employees more, and understand that the tobacco industry has an unfavorable image among young people and people just dont use tobacco like they used to.
