    I have been working at Philip Morris USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    As in all industries you can get a bad supervisor that tries to make your world hard but for the most part a good atmosphere. Overtime can be rough at times. sometimes forced 7days and 12 hours

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees.

    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§

    I worked at Philip Morris USA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best in class training
    Ethical company standards
    Competitive compensation, DPS, bonuses

    Cons

    Work-life balance is hard to maintain
    In and out of a minivan, regardless of weather, calling on liquor and convenience stores
    As the company takes on new categories and brands, employee workloads increase without additional support or compensation...there are only so many hours in a day
    Promoting past Unit Manager is difficult due to the very limited number of DM positions

    Pros

    Friendly environment, good management, great co-workers. I miss them all!

    Cons

    I can't find anything bad about this company. Maybe, hard to get a position there?

    Advice to Management

    Great job! I used to get many thank you notes from CEO, vice-president and dept heads. Those thank you notes helped me to work harder and appreciate that I worked for a great company!

    I worked at Philip Morris USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. I received leadership training along with safety training, which I use to this day. I am looking for another job where the benefits can be as outstanding as they were from this company.

    Cons

    Working in a tobacco environment can be annoying.

    Advice to Management

    I had a lot of off time once I worked my way up to it. Week of the 4th and Christmas week were automatic with pay even if you were not employed for a long length of time. Time off was great and benefits were too. Compensation package such as severance pay was great after the company closed.
