    Pros

    Philip Morris USA is an excellent internship experience. You are not conducting mundane tasks such as paperwork or copying files, but getting hands-on experience by directly going in retail stores, working with different managers, and getting in-class instructions. It doesn't get any better than this, and the pay is great.

    Cons

    The traffic was terrible at times.

    Advice to Management

    I've worked with such great people who were open to constructive criticism in positive tones, and worked with me in areas of opportunity. No advice from me is needed.
