    I worked at Swedish Match North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, company car, most holidays off, good insurance. Pay could be better. Most of the time you work on your own. Good training.

    Cons

    Very low market share. Your two big competitors have about 90% of the market. SMNA has about 5%. You will reach your goals because your accounts like you, not because of your product. SMNA is big into the flavored cigars, grape, peach, banana, sweets, that are aimed at kids. Laws are changing that will kill their business. This is not a good field to get into.
             VERY NEGATIVE MANAGEMENT, you will work with your boss once or twice a quarter and their boss once a quarter. Very stressful be ready to hear about anything that is not right. SMNA is a good old boy environment. Good luck if you are a woman or a minority. Too much paper work that you must catch up on, during the week-end. If married your spouse will be the first to let you know that you don't have a life any more.

    Advice to Management

    Have management take some classes at a university to learn a more currant style of management. Management through intimidation is not as effective as management through motivation. WAKE UP SMNA pretend that your employees are a valuable asset.
