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

    Pros

    Great starting salary out of college especially in states where cost of living is low. Good training for advancement.

    Cons

    Salaries were the same to start in all states. Only promote within your region. They like to move you out of state when you get promoted so you work is your only focus.

    Advice to Management

    Help employees live where they want even if they means moving to different regions.

    Pros

    The people are wonderful and become family. Once you learn the job, it is pretty straight-forward and simple. You build wonderful relationships with people from all walks of life.

    Cons

    The amount of marketing materials is overwhelming. It’s not bad if you have room in your home to dedicate as an office.
    After a long day, you still have about an hour of computer work. New product launches happen often, as well as display changes (which can take an entire day!

    Great pay for hourly, decent benefits, profit sharing second to none.

    I worked at Philip Morris USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great salary and even greater benefits....the company 401 k is brilliant and the stock options/dividends are fantastic. Overall business is good, the people smart. No more free unlimited cigarettes...

    Cons

    too many meetings....meeting of meetings....tendency to forget about the problems instead of resolving it. Marlboro is brand managed by 50 people(ceo included!) and is not evolving with its time....veteran managers are governing and blocking young talented managers from pushing them away

    Advice to Management

    those 360 feedback forms and the HR division are not to the level of the others...Some people with no added values whatsoever are still there§
