Pros

Great salary plus relocation, low cost of living. Other interns are good and your managers really want you to succeed. They take the law and their corporate social responsibility very seriously.

Cons

Salary not high enough to compensate the bad reputation you get when you look for a full time job. The decision to hire for full time is arbitrary and based on superficial perceptions and not your work, upper management sees you as extra work and don´t really care for your future.
The industry is highly regulated and there are a lot of things you won´t do or learn because they are illegal for this industry plus on the first weeks everyone treats you like you are stupid just because you don´t know every minuscule detail of their laws and regulations.

Advice to Management

Face it, not many people want to work for Big Tobacco you need to give more of your time and make an extra effort $$$$ to attract candidates, at least be respectful of the time an effort that an intern puts on the job.

    Pros

    If you are mobile and willing to relocate, the moving package is generous enough so you pocket some big cash.

    Cons

    The infiltration of RJRT employees into Santa Fe has negatively impacted the spirit of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity? It is true what someone else said here in another post: if you are a female, you will hit a ceiling at entry level management.
