    Pros

    As a salaried employee we had great pay and benefits. We were allowed to function with a great deal of autonomy and never were micro-managed.

    Cons

    Since it is such a big company, you some times feel as you are merely a number.

    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.

    Pros

    Excellent training
    Promotional opportunities with determination, dedication and hard work
    Top salary and great benefits

    Personally, I started out as a sales representative and was promoted 7 different times. I moved to 5 different states with my final destination being at corporate headquarters in marketing. When I was hired, very few women were in management positions with even fewer women willing to relocate their family. Times have changed and opportunity is up to the individual's passion and hard work. Raises are mainly based on merit and PM has a great 401K.

    Cons

    Corporate politics - you do work for a large corporation!
    Work / Life balance can get wacky if you let it

    Advice to Management

    Expand a mentor program to more employees within sales
