    Pros

    An established company with regular reviews and they give a clear understanding of your role and what the expectations are and how you fit into the organization.

    Cons

    A very old and outdated company with a overly formal and restrictive work environment that kills innovation and creativity and while structure is needed in any organization they take the protocols too far.

    Advice to Management

    The dress code needs to go it's outdated and it brings unnecessary cost and inconvenience for very little reward as far as performance and morale.

    Pros

    Great benefits, company car, good salary

    Cons

    Horrible culture that allows managers to treat their employees however they want. Mine specifically was a bully not just to me, but my coworkers and was essentially a major contributing factor to the breakup of my engagement. In the interest of transparency, I was let go in July of 2014, but not from lack of me trying to control my destiny. I worked from 7 am to 4 pm and would often leave my house prior to 5 am in order to allow myself ample time to prepare for the day.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be a bully, recognize your employees, treat them like assets, train middle management to be effective, encouraging, supportive managers.

    Pros

    This once was a good place to work. Good pay, great benefits, with company car, 401K and retirement package. Can set your own goals.

    Cons

    This company was sold to RJR which in turn sold the remaining company to Imperial Toacco Group out of the UK.

    Advice to Management

    I get the feeling that none of us are going to be secure with the new company. I guess it's time to 're-evaluate.

    I have been working at Lorillard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, company car, decent pay. Not micro managed, on your own most days. Fast paced and competitive environment. Co workers are helpful.

    Company has been sold and will be split between Commonwealth Altadis and RJR. Future is uncertain at best. Tobacco sales are trending down.

    Advice to Management

    CEO sold everyone out.
